TWIF: What is your favorite baseball team and who is your favorite baseball player of all time?
SZ: Cleveland Indians, Monte Irvin (old school fav player), Omar Vizquel (new school fav). I fell in love with Monte Irvin's 1954 Topps baseball card.

TWIF: Second Base or Third Base?
SZ: I don't understand the question.

TWIF: Why is wiffleball better than kickball?
SZ: Wiffleball takes real skills, you can't pick teammates based on if they're cute or not. The eye-hand coordination that it takes, just to catch the damn thing, let alone hit, makes it a challenging game. The only challenge in kickball is trying to find new people to sleep with each season.

TWIF: Have you ever done anything under the bleachers you're not proud of?
SZ: In 4th grade I used to go to HS football games and grab the ankles of the girls I liked. That stopped after I accidentally grabbed the girl’s mother's leg.

TWIF: Who is the player in the league you'd most like to see get hit by a car while chasing a foul ball?
SZ: I'll tell the person I WOULDN'T want to see get hit by a car: Ross Duenas. I want that kid healthy as a horse so he has no excuse when he loses not only the Series again, but the Triple Crown as well.

TWIF: How does it feel to have never won the Player of the Week Award?
SZ: Honestly, awards and individual stats aren't all that important to me. I want to win. We are back-to-back PWL series champs, that's the only award that matters. When what we've begun at Gravely Point is finished no one will look back and say, "Well, he was a good player, but he never won it all." I take satisfaction in that.
