When you aren’t obsessing over sports stats or your fantasy line up, you are 
 Writing about Rob Ford in the Journalism program at Humber College
Favourite sport?
 Hockey, however soccer is a close second.
Favourite sports moment?
 I would have to say the “Golden Goal,” Crosby’s overtime gold-medal winner at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Favourite athlete?    
 Russel Wilson. Usually this is where I would put a hockey or soccer player, however I’m going to go with who I think possesses all-around talent and ability, not to mention a positive role model for the sports world. Wilson was also drafted by the MLB, which hits home for me, as I am a big Bo Jackson fan as well.
Favourite teams?
Toronto Maple Leafs
Calgary Flames
FC Bayern Munich
Detroit Lions
Do you like long walks on the beach?
 If yes, do I get the girl in the end?
Jordan or LeBron?
 LeBron. I think his athletic ability is out of this world.
Gretzky or Orr or Crosby?
The Great One.
P.Manning or Brady?
 This is a tough one. I’m going with Brady and the AFC championships/ Superbowl rings.
Ruth or Mays?
 Mays. He could do it all.
You would sell your __ for Super bowl/World Cup/ Stanley Cup/ NBA Championship/ World Series.
 Soul and my car for the Toronto Maple Leafs to win the Stanley Cup. Not sure how much I’d get back for my car though – in fact I think it would tarnish any sort of playoff hopes…lets scratch it off the list.
Why are you a Model Sports Fan? (as in devoted/crazy ass sports fan)
Sports are my life. If I’m not watching hockey, I’m tuning into soccer or the NFL. I love watching sports live or at the bar, and if I’m going to drop down to one knee one day, by golly she better know what an icing is.
