    Usually college players, whether from South Carolina or Duke. Mostly South Carolina back then, but still with some Duke players mixed in.

    Hockey: Always Steve Yzerman (even had a #19 jersey!)

    Baseball: I tried to model my game after, well, mostly Detroit Tigers (Travis Fryman, Mickey Tettleton, Alan Trammell, Tony Philips). Somehow, i also managed to sneak some JEFF BAGWELL in there (i used to wear a pad on my foot just like he did, just to look cool). Pitching-wise, for whatever reason when i started trying to model myself off of CHARLIE LEIBRANDT, i actually had alot of success.

    Football: Barry Sanders. Always.

    Basketball: I tried to envision JOHN STOCKTON, but i think i played more like Bill Laimbeer.

    Whenever I play basketball I usually end up in the Shawn Marion type role on the court.

    I can, for the most part, cover anyone. I can't create my own shot but can hit the open ones. I rebound, steal and block well. And I look goofy.


    In football, I'm usually a wide receiver. I start off thinking I'm Marvin Harrison but as soon as I make a catch I get cocky and I trash talk... that's when I realize I'm TO... as much as it pains me to admit that. :p



    In Baseball and wiffleball, I'm Randy Johnson. all. the. time.

    In basketball I clearly and consciously styled my game after Kurt Rambis and Bill Lambier. I could pretend Magic Johnson as much as I wanted, but game couldn't deliver. I keyed on what I was good at, which was tenacious D and a little on-court thuggery.

    Football it was John Riggins on offense and Lawrence Taylor on defense.

    Baseball was Ricky Henderson, but that just meant I usually got caught stealing, as I don't have his speed.
