What is the best pregame meal ever?
“Whole wheat spaghetti with marinara sauce and chicken breasts, with a coffee.”
What is your biggest superstition?
“I’ve got a bunch of little ones. Just, all my gear has to be the same. It can’t have anything go wrong. It always has to be the same — stick tape, wax, everything. It has to be the same.”
