Height:  5'7 Weight:  182 lbs. Alumni Status:  '94
Location:  Northern Virginia Favorite Baseball Team:  casually following Nationals and Blue over alienation with 94 canceled season
Natural Enemies:  Miami Dolphin (Fish) fans

Athletic Ability: Gym rat and medium distance runner and hybrid biker. Not having the ex-wife to complain about it any more is a blessing. In the best shape of my life and strongest in my 40s. Hoping to complete a marathon in the next year. Had a few false starts as foot and ankle pain flares up just as I start to enter training plans.

Considering a return to rec league hockey, but don't have the time presently. Played for Keenan Interhall with a certain Stanley Cup winning GM.

Punt team for 1992 Keenan Interhall Championship. Grew up overweight. Played line through high school based on strength. Barely made the lineup of this legendary power team due to being very light for a lineman. Honored though to be on the team which defeated Zahm 7-0 for the glory!

Sartorial Style: Work: Business casual.

Not at work: Shorts, jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Wine: A lot. Savignon Blanc (Monkey Bay), Cabernet Savignon (J Lohr Paso Robles), Pinot Grigio, Montepulciano when eating red sauce Italian, red blends, occasionally Virginia regional wines.

Old Krupnik: On occasion for as long as my bottle lasts from trips back home to Buffalo. It's a Polish honey liqueur, which also is used as a cough, cold, and sore throat elixir.

Rarely now other hard stuff. Jameson when I need its special powers. Went through a bourbon phase after work trips to Kentucky.

Beer: Occasional, but feel I've grown up. Favorite is Great Lakes "Edmund Fitzgerald." Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager, Coors Light, Molson, and Labatt's varieties. Not nearly as often as I used to. Usually just during football or if free and no wine is available.

Practically quit diet Pepsi in the last 2 years. after being "addicted" since late teens.

Political Philosophy: Just right of center with libertarian inclinations. Hopeless moderate conservative on most issues amidst the majority of moderate to strong lefty activists in the DC area who haughtily proclaim how successful they will be at "turning Virginia blue."

Religious Philosophy: AMDG! Disciple of Pope Francis, SJ.

Musical Favorites: Variety...pop, 70s, 80s, 90s, classic rock, hard rock metal, Buffett, early alternative, classical, polka, Irish punk drinking, Italian Pavarotti and Bocelli.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: Philosophy rather than specific quote. W.I.N. "What's Important Now." Lou.

Favorite non-ND coach quote: "Where else would you rather be than RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW?" Marv Levy.

Miscellaneous Data: My golf cart crash in January 1992 in the snow and ice outside the Law School building was due to deliberate reckless driving over an argument with the passenger/dorm mailman regarding that week's upcoming Super Bowl XXVI.

I prefer the NFL to college football. It's just reflective of how it was growing up in my hometown and our love of the Bills.
