Athletic Ability: Nothing to write home about. I've always loved sports, but have never had much talent.

Sartorial Style: Nothing interesting.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Big beers (e.g. DFH 90 Min, Bell's HopSlam, everything Stone makes), dry martinis, bourbon neat (Knob Creek, Booker's), and coffee. Lots of coffee.

When I slum it, I'd rather knock back some PBRs than anything made by Bud/Miller/Coors.

Political Philosophy: Conservative. I try hard to balance my Catholic faith with my political views. I'm pro-life, anti-death penalty, in favor of stronger border security as well as compassionate policies toward immigrants who are already here and otherwise obeying the laws. I think the government has an obligation to provide a safety net for the less fortunate in society, but I don't think it's in the poor's best interest for the government to make them dependent on unsustainable entitlement programs. I also think the less fortunate are best off when the private sector is robust and creating jobs. I've never voted for a Democrat, but would be willing to support a moderate, pro-life Dem. However, I don't see that candidate running in a national election any time soon.

Antonin Scalia is my hero.

Religious Philosophy: Credo in unum Deum,
Patrem omnipotentem,
factorem caeli et terrae,
visibilium omnium et invisibilium,

Et in unum Dominum Iesum Christum,
Filium Dei unigenitum,
et ex Patre natum, ante omnia saecula,
Deum de Deo, lumen de Lumine,
Deum verum de Deo vero,
genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri:
per quem omnia facta sunt.
Qui propter nos homines et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis.
Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto
ex Maria Virgine, et homo factus est.
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato;
passus et sepultus est,
et resurrexit tertia die, secundem Scripturas,
et ascendit in caelum, sedet ad dexteram Patris.
Et iterum venturus est cum gloria,
iudicare vivos et mortuos,
cuius regni non erit finis.

Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem:
qui ex Patre Filioque procedit.
Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur:
qui locutus est per prophetas.
Et nuam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam.
Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum.
Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum,
et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.

Musical Favorites: The Avett Brothers, Bob Dylan, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ryan Bingham, Zeppelin, CCR, Johnny Cash, U2

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: The priest is not going to give you communion tomorrow if you don't give us a better mark!

-Lou Holtz to an official in the 2007 Blue-Gold Game. I regret the fact that I wasn't an ND fan yet when Lou was the coach.
