Question 1: What is your favorite t-shirt that you own?
I have a bounty of wonderful t-shirts which makes this question difficult. Currently, I would say that my favorite shirt is one that says "Eagles are Forever" and also features a picture of an eagle. I like it because it looks cool and is soft. Here is a picture of me wearing the shirt and a monkey:
My favorite t-shirt which I don't own features the Cobra Kai logo and says "Sweep the Leg":
Question 2: Who is the most famous person you've ever shaken hands with?
Funny you should ask. During the summer of 2002, my boyhood hero Jim Rome came to visit the Mile-High City. A little smooth-talking scored Ryan and I some tickets to the "Meet and Greet" session. That is where I met Van Smack. Our hands embraced for a brief moment and he wrote something really fast on a picture for me. It was awesome. Not too many people get to meet their boyhood hero, so I feel lucky. Here's a graphic depiction of the event:
I met Rick Majerus and Urban Meyer and some Utah athletes.
I also met Marc Brown, creator of Arthur the aadvark. He came to my elementary school and I got done with my work so I got to go to the library and meet him. It wasn't really cool at all when you think about it.
Question 3: What are the coolest nicknames you've given people?
Hmmm...let's see. When my roommate's ladyfriend, Jen, crashed a gigantic foam airplane into my eye, I named her Jen Ladin. I also have a friend named Mattle who I named "Frattle" because he joined an LDS fraternity. Also, during our non-affiliated undergraduate years, I addressed my wife as Mohammed. There was also Evil Joe, Krusty, Lyn Ladin, Karl C, Robot, Rawd, Rawd.com, and Rawdimir among others.
Question 4: What is your favorite memory from your undergraduate experience?
My undergraduate experience encompassed four entire years. It's hard to say which is the best, but here are the candidates:
I got to help pull down the goal post after Utah's undefeated football regular season. Not very many people get to be that guy.
I got my first Speedo modeling gig. This work was published in a major periodical.
I shook my booty for the "Arctic Circle Shake" and placed in the top three.
My brother and I scared the neighbor with the gift of a snake in a box and then blamed it on Evil Joe.
This list could go on and on. I would have to say that my undergraduate career was truly prolific in many ways.
So now everyone knows a little bit more about me. Yippee!
