Q. What's your favorite hockey movie?

A. Probably Miracle.

Q. Is a hot dog a sandwich?

A. No.

Q. What's the first concert you ever attended?

A. I think it was a Billy Currington concert at the Fargo fair. I don't know. I didn't go to too many concerts as a kid. This was more in my teens.

Q. What's the most you've ever eaten in one sitting?

A. I don't eat too much. Tucker is the bigger eater. He can eat a ton of stuff. I don't eat too much. I can't think of one time.

Q. If UND could play one game this season in any city in the world, where would you choose?

A. It'd be pretty cool to play in Nashville.

Q. What's your favorite account to follow on Twitter?

A. Gage Ausmus. He has some pretty funny things to say and he re-tweets a lot of funny things.

A. Yoga that we do every once in a while.

Q. If you could have dinner with any two people in the world, who would you choose?
