What was yourwelcome-to-the-NFL moment?

My first preseason game, with the Jets, the O-line coach yelled at me formessing up. I was like, Wow. They don't do that in college--at Penn Stateeverything's warm and fuzzy.

Mostembarrassing moment?

Last year I went the wrong way on an audible and I knocked [Jeremy] Shockeydown. A knockdown block on my teammate. It's an ongoing joke in practicesnow.

Favorite off-dayactivity?

I shoot pool and I watch a lot of cartoons.

If I werecommissioner for a day, I'd...

...shorten the preseason. Maybe three preseason games.

If I weren'tplaying football, I'd...

...probably be in law enforcement. I'm a fast driver, but when someone passesme or does something stupid on the road, I wish I could pull them over. I'd bea highway patrolman, boy.
