What 3 adjectives would you use to best describe yourself?

Honour, Courage, & Commitment. - Semper Fi.

What is your favorite movie?

Billy Madison. - We named our daughter after that movie.
Slapshot & Full Metal Jacket are pretty gnarly too.

What is your favorite song?

Dropkick Murphys cover of “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock & Roll)” - I listened to that all last season, and feel it epitomizes the Sabres work ethic.

Who is your favorite Singer/Band?

My Uncle Bones – he’ll give you a karaoke of Johnny Cash that’ll knock yer socks off, or make you laugh trying….

Who is your favorite current Buffalo Sabres player?

Stamp my ticket for a trip to Pominville.  My Cousin Lauren talks about wanting to marry him so much…I gots-to like him the best -- we could be related in a few years!

Who is your all time favorite Buffalo Sabres player?

Foligno, Ramsey, or Jeanneret
I swear Jeanneret should have his own number.  Then, let it be retired…a long, long time from now, when his story becomes legend for generations that wont be able to enjoy him now….To me he’s a Sabre, and on of my favorites too.

What was your most embarrassing moment?

The day my daughter was born I fell asleep on this little chair in Buffalo’s Women & Children’s Hospital.  This mind you is the first child of mine that I know of.
I was going on about 30hours with no sleep, and decided to kick back for a rest.  My wife coming out of a drug induced haze, and I thought it wouldn’t be a problem to grab some Z’s.  I rolled the footrest out from this transformer-like chair, and curled into a ball on the seat cushion with the upper half of my body, while the lower half lay upon the footrest part. Yeah, wouldn’t you know it – my fat-body sent the foot rest crashing to the floor after about 10 minutes, kinking my body into a twister like position. 
The nurses left my wife’s side to tend to my contorted misshapen mess of a nap, providing me with the promise of medical treatment – while my wife was writhing in pain. God Bless them nurses for all that they do….

If you were a Superhero, what would your superpower be?

Rubbing my Tummy and Patting my head while jumping on one leg.

Why?

Cuz I never could get that down….
