Get to Know Steve

What was the height of your week?

About 6 1" when I'm wearing shoes.

What's your favorite restaurant for team lunches?

The Brody Complex. It reminds me of when I was a college freshman and had a ton of money unlike now when I'm a parent.

Name a hidden talent, or one unknown fact about you.

I can breakdance. I have 3 moves and was called ElectroMagic when I took dancing lessons in 5th grade. I really wish I was making that up.

What's the craziest thing you've recently done?

Woke my wife up accidentally after she had a tough night of derby practice and she took a swing at me in her sleep. But I dodged it and still got the points.
