"Nachos and cheese, with jalapenos, whatever (wife Barb) feels like making. We sit and watch all the games, college football, hockey -- it starts Thursday. We will be there. Her nachos are better. It's the TLC."

"I usually bring a bag of Twizzlers, and tonight I didn't. I usually have Twizzlers at every game. I like the strawberry flavor."

"Normally popcorn, with butter and salt. My favorite sport, I guess right now it would be baseball with the Cardinals. I both watch at home and go to games, especially with the kids. They like to see them live."
