Current Level: we play house, and are in the tier right below the top. We keep getting moved up, so we may be forced there eventually. Who knows!
Position: C / LW / RW - I prefer LW because I shoot RH and prefer the off-wing shot.
Type of Player: The one no one messes with, but unlike most of those I can also change or carry a game. Wrist shot like a bomb, fast enough to catch most anyone on a back-check, vision good enough to see things average defenders aren't expecting, very hard to move or deter in front of the net (and can move anyone in front of mine easily), tough to keep off the score sheet, good shutdown center and usually stick the high-scoring opposition to keep them quiet.

TV: I can watch any stupid sitcom over and over and over and over. Breaking Bad is my favorite current show though.
Food: Depends on the day. I eat very strictly and as such the cravings come and go for different things on different days. I've been known to eat 5 plates of Chinese buffet, often eat a 14" pizza for a pre-game meal (topped off w/a light snack 2 hours prior), etc. I can eat, man.
Drink: Water. Drink at least a gallon a day. Aside from that, I love root beer.
