Get to Know Your Vols (and Your Fellow Rocky Top Talkers)

I always enjoy these kinds of videos from UTSports, and it occurred to me that because traffic is up here at RTT, now would be a good time to get to know each other a little bit better, too. So first, have a look at the video. Below, we'll ask and answer the same questions. I'll go first, and y'all can answer in the comments.

Favorite video game: Super Mario Cart, Gamecube version. Yes, I'm about three generations of game consoles behind. But it's some of the best times I have with my kids, who can both beat me soundly and regularly.

Favorite TV show: I don't watch much TV, actually, so I'm completely clueless about what's on right now. We do have Netflix and Amazon Prime, though, so I recently re-watched the entire LOST series again with my oldest daughter. I find that questions are usually more interesting than answers, and that was very true of LOST.

Favorite food: Pizza, and I look just like Justin Hunter when I say it. Pizza makes me happy. I am a simple guy, though, so it's mostly just pepperoni or maybe pepperoni and sausage for me. Pizza Hut used to be the go-to place, but now it's Papa John's. I don't work in Johnson City anymore, so I'm really missing Greg's Pizza. If you're ever in JC, you have to try it.

Most embarrassing song on your ipod: Lots of candidates here, but I'll call it a tie between Whole New World from Aladdin and Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits. Hey, I'm a father of daughters. I have no explanation for the Manilow except to say that he writes good songs. Yeah, I know that doesn't help my case very much.

And let me add a couple just to try to redeem myself.

Favorite thing on your ipod that most people won't know: Probably Jellyfish's Spilt Milk. I also have a lot of black gospel on there that I really like, mostly John P. Kee and some Fred Hammond.

Current favorite thing on YouTube: This:
