Height:  5'11 Weight:  175 lbs. Alumni Status:  '95 Grace Hall
Location:  Chicago suburbs Favorite Baseball Team:  Meh
Natural Enemies:  Skunkbears and Traveler-lovers

Athletic Ability: I won't be the last one picked, but I don't get many calls around the trading deadlines.

Sartorial Style: Whatever Mrs. Foz95 wants me to wear.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: "Doubtless, it is unnatural to be drunk. But then in a real sense it is unnatural to be human. Doubtless, the intemperate workman wastes his tissues in drinking; but no one knows how much the sober workman wastes his tissues by working."
- G. K. Chesterton

I like beers, Belgian ales especially, but sometimes a Bud Light is just as welcome as a Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale. I like wines. A Brunello (or more likely given my budget these days, a Rosso) di Montalcino with a fine cut of steak is heaven on earth.

I don't drink nearly enough.

Political Philosophy: "We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, “The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind.”

We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth."
- Ronald Reagan

Religious Philosophy: "If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!"
- St. Catherine of Sienna

"Science can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes."
- John Paul II the Great

Musical Favorites: For contemporary music, nothing particularly cutting edge: The Police, Van Morrison, Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler, and I have a fairly well developed case of Parrothead-itis.

I've been listening to a lot of Louie and Ella, Chet Baker, Sinatra, etc. of late.

But Palestrina kicks everyone's ass.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: "Thanks for supporting the team. Breakfast is on me."
- Lou Holtz (at 5:30 AM to the juniors in line for tickets before the 92-93 season)
