In the Pro's Questionnaire, our favorite sports figures take our abridged version of the famous personality test, the Proust Questionnaire. Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard is up next. The three-time All-Star and 2006 National League MVP talks about trying to be happy, his fear of heights and road rage.
Your main fault:
Ryan Howard: I overanalyze a lot of stuff.
Your idea of happiness:
RH: Having the people that mean the most to me with me and being healthy.
Your idea of misery:
RH: I don't know because I try to be happy.
If not yourself, who would you want to be?
RH: My dad.
Your favorite food/drink:
RH: Stuffing. Mountain Blast Powerade.
Hero/heroine you admire most:
RH: Besides my older brother, my girlfriend [now fiancee, Krystal Campbell]. She's a second grade teacher and I admire her.
What you hate most:
RH: Traffic. I think I got that road rage from my sister. She passed that on to me.
The natural talent you'd like to be gifted with:
RH: I'm already fast. I'm going to say singing. My karaoke performance might be good but it won't sound that good.
Your greatest fear:
RH: Heights. I'm working on it.
Your greatest extravagance:
RH: Nothing that out of the ordinary or crazy. Probably just the house.
Your present state of mind:
