Anytime I do an appearance with young kids, I do a question and answer segment where they can ask anything. I like doing this because it is an excellent way for the kids to get to know you. I thought I would do the same for espnW so my fans here can get to know me, too.
Here are some of the typical questions that I usually get asked:
