AA: Who is your least favorite musical artist/band?
EB: Probably anything screamo or heavy metal, stuff like that.
AA: Name one candy bar that should never have been made?
EB: I’m going with Nut Roll. I have never actually had one before, but they don’t seem like they’d be very great.
AA: What’s your favorite commercial?
EB: I really like the Pedigree Dentastix commercial with all the dogs wearing dentures. I think it’s cute.

AA: What has been your favorite memory from this soccer season?
EB: Just bus trips and when were all together because we are all just slap- happy by the end of it. I love it.

AA: White or wheat bread?
EB: Wheat, because it is better.
AA: If you could relive one day over again, what day and why?
EB: I would relive the day my club team played in a tournament and we played three games to win the championship. It was an incredible, but playing three games in one day was not easy.
