HOW THE DEVIL ARE YOU?

Just fine.

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU'RE NOT PLAYING. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

Usually I'll just be hanging out with the family at home and maybe taking the dogs for a walk. Nothing fancy.

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

Loyal, honest, dedicated, humorous ... and maybe older.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?

I'd say an average student. More of a class clown and I regret it now.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

I'd have to say my championship ring (from the Roughnecks' 2004 NLL championship victory).

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

Just beer -- cold beer.

WHO'S THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

It would have to be one of my brothers. I don't know which one but I'm sure one of them pulled off something I didn't like.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST UNPLEASANT CHARACTERISTIC?

Laziness.

WHAT'S THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU'VE EVER BOUGHT?

Oh, geez, I'd have to say my brother's '73 Nova when I was in high school. It was a great buy but it was painted with green house latex paint. It was a lady killer. Oh, and it had no muffler either.

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE RECEIVED?

Probably just to relax and have fun while I'm playing and enjoy the moments while I can because before I know it, my career will be over.

IF YOU COULD BE ANY OTHER ATHLETE, WHO WOULD IT BE?

Either Gretzky or Jordan. Someone who was at the top of their game for years and years and changed the game so much from when they started.

WHAT'S YOUR CULINARY SPECIALTY?

I can do some chicken cordon bleu and I can do some pasta. I guess that's what I got from marrying a girl from New York.

WHAT'S YOUR CELLPHONE RING?

It's just a regular ring. It's actually pretty cheesy. But, to tell you the truth, I can't figure out how to change the ring.

WHO'S THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON IN YOUR CELL?

Oh, give me a break! I don't have anybody famous in my cellphone. I don't know how to program it either. I can't do any of that stuff. (Editor's note: He's not lying. His wife Tracy had to record his voicemail greeting).

WHAT TV SERIES DO YOU WANT ON DVD?

I already have the Simpsons. Seinfeld, maybe.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE DIE?

We get eaten by the worms.

WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

Loneliness.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE ALL-TIME MOVIE?

Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

WHAT WAS THE LAST MOVIE THAT MADE YOU CRY?

The Iron Giant. Have you seen that? It's awesome. Especially the ending.

WHAT'S THE STRANGEST FAN MAIL YOU RECEIVED?

It wasn't fan mail but before I married my wife, she had a sign up in the stands when I was playing for the New York Saints on Long Island that said: 'Marry Me No. 22'. I got carved like crazy in the dressing room for that. It's still brought up to this day when I run into someone from New York.

WHAT'S THE UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

I have a lot of stuff I like that my wife thinks is hideous. I'll say my cheap sandals and I have this black T-shirt that says: "You got a Hemi in that," with a Dodge truck on it that's pretty cheesy.

DID YOU GET THAT WITH A TEST DRIVE?

No, I think my uncle gave it to me but I wear it.

COULD YOU BE CONVINCED TO KARAOKE AND, IF SO, WHAT'S YOUR SONG?

Definitely. Any Neil Diamond or that duet from Grease, Summer Nights.
