When I was a kid, I wanted to be ... a teacher and a coach.

What would you rather be doing right now? Sitting on a swim dock on a warm summer day with family at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone that ... in my youth, I loved to ice-skate.

Other than your wedding day and the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? Moving into our home that my wife and I built ourselves with family and friends 30 years ago.

It really stinks when ... people litter and expect someone else to pick up after them.

What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Organized.

I always laugh when ... my grandson shows me his muscles.

Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? My grandparents and my dad. They had such a positive influence on shaping our family.

At the end of a really long day at work, I like to ... work out and go see the grandkids.

People who knew me in high school thought I was ... an average guy involved in many school activities.

My most unforgettable brush with greatness was with ... the pope. I was standing with a group being addressed by the pope in the square outside of St. Peter's Basilica.

I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to ... go with my sons to see the Cardinals play in Game 7 of the World Series.

America should be more concerned about ... spending only what it can afford.

I'm OK if there's ever a national shortage of ... Gus Macker T-shirts.

When I'm on the Internet, I always go to ... my favorite sport in season and check the date/times of the next games.

What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? My parents said, "Treat others as you would like to be treated."

When I'm cruising down the road, I'm likely listening to ... most anything but rap.

I always get sentimental when ... I think of how my dad, who passed away 12 years ago, would have loved to be with us to see the activities and accomplishments of our sons.

The older I get, the more I realize ... time goes by very fast, especially between the ages of 35 and 55.

If I had one "do-over," I would ... have consulted with my wife, who was my fiancee at the time, before buying our first house.

If I've learned anything at all ... where there is a will, there is a way, and be careful using the word "never."
