Beckham or Ronaldo? Ronaldo is a beast!
What was your first paying job? Chik-fil-A where I still work until this day and yes I have been in the cow suit! It is a blast really, you can act like a total goofball and no one knows it is you.

Favorite TV show when I was in Junior High…all of the Law and Orders, Bones, House, and reality shows like the Bachelor or Bachelorette.
My favorite color in the crayon box is…either aquamarine or tickle me pink (because the name is quite ridiculous).

If you were stranded on an island what three things would you want most? A soccer ball, sweet tea, and sunscreen (I would look like a tomato in a heartbeat!)
If I were a race horse, my name would be…Ginga because I have to represent all of the red heads in the world.
Before a game, I have to…have sweet tea, it is definitely a must! And put mascara on.
