What do you have DVR'd?

"Jurassic Park." Do you have any superstitions/pre-game rituals? If so, what are they?
"I don't really have any of my own. I have a lot with other teammates and stuff, so I respect their superstitions more so than my own." What's on your bucket list?
"My bucket list. A lot of things, sky diving is up there, deep sea fishing and learning how to fly." What's the biggest obstacle you've had to overcome?
"Walking onto the team here, it took a while. I tried as a freshman, but didn't make it until my sophomore year, so it's been pretty cool." What is your favorite home cooked meal?
"That's easy, tortellini. My mom makes home made tortellini and it's pretty good." What is your favorite class at Duke?

"I'd like to be the CEO of a successful start up medical device company. I just have to come up with an idea and go from there." Who has had the most impact on your life and why?

"The guy from the show "River Monsters," he just gets to go around the world and fish, so it's not a bad gig." What is your worst habit?
AR: "My worst habit is not folding my clean laundry." Fill in the blank -- I wish I knew how to _________
"I wish I knew how to break dance, I think that would be a pretty cool talent." Who would play you in a movie?
"I'd like to think Jim Carrey. I like a lot of his roles and his movies." What is your favorite restaurant in Durham?
