Hi the first couple times, then the token head nod.

2. How many different careers (not jobs) have you had since college or your early 20's?
Restaurant business from age 14-21, residential lending from age 21-34. My dream is to open my own restaurant in 10 years or so. Good homemade Italian food, big bar area, live music on the weekends, and a nice patio.

3. Have you ever been hospitalized due to a fight? If so details please.
No. My career record in fights is 1-1. Currently on a 18 year inactive streak.

4. Beside winning %, in your opinion what is the most important statistic in sports (any 1 sport or all 3, OK all 4)
I love guys that step it up in the playoffs when all the chips are in the middle of the table. So to me, besides Championships Won, in general, playoff statistics.

5. Worst illness/medical condition/injury you've ever had?
I've had kidney stones three times. One time I passed em through urine. Other two times were brutal ... had to have that surgery where they go in through the tip of your you know what and blast em with a laser, then place a stint inside you for a week to help collect the carnage from the blasting.

Worst of the two was January 2007 ... will never forget it cause it was the day of the AFC and NFC Championship games (Bears/Saints and Colts/Pats). Surgery was that morning and brutal. The stint hurt, I was on so much pain medication it was making me vomit, and the other dude in the other half of my room had 40-50 obnoxious visitors streaming in and out all day. It was like a real bad Snoop Dog video.

Work in fairly close quarters with co-workers...after the morning "S'up", pretty much just a nod or the fake grin.

2. How many different careers (not jobs) have you had since college or your early 20's?
One - for 34 yrs

3. Have you ever been hospitalized due to a fight? If so details please.

Almost...at age 18...guy sucker-punched me in a team-on-team parking lot brawl after a hotly-contested fast-pitch softball game at Forest Hills Park. He opened up a cut on my chin, but it was just short of hospital-worthy.

4. Beside winning %, in your opinion what is the most important statistic in sports (any 1 sport or all 3, OK all 4)

In baseball, used to say RBI, but now probably OPS.

5. Worst illness/medical condition/injury you've ever had?
Age 23 - Stevens-Johnson's Syndrome - severe allergic reaction to penicillin and some other antibiotics - almost died of dehydration...11 days of hospitalization...lost all stable skin (blistered & peeled) on exterior...face, chest and entire groin area (yes), and on the interior...mouth, throat, stomach, digestive/urinary tract. Nasty shit. Somehow managed to avoid the common side-effects of the condition: blindness, sterility, kidney failure.
