Getting to know THE TEAM - One last guy 18

Sandy said that I should have been the first to answer these questions. She was probably right. I never heard back from Roberto. So we will all have to imagine what his answers may have been.


Ladies and Gentleman RICK

Q: How did you end up on THE TEAM?

A: I used to work with Chris when he was a teenager with a grill festooned with orthodonture. I am ten years older than him so he used to ask for my advice. Now he is an educated gentleman with a job and is engaged to a lovely woman. I ask him for advice now.

Q: What positions have you played this season? Do you have a favorite?

I have played LF, CF, SS, 1B and 3B. My favorite is softball. I just want to play!!!

Q: Is there a special reason you chose 18 for your jersey number?

A: The 1 is for January, the month my son was born. The 8 is for August, the month my daughter was born. 18!

Q: Did you play sports in school? What teams were you on and what school did you play for?

A: I played football at Reseda High School and Pierce College.

Q: Besides your outstanding softball ability, what other talents do you have?

A: I spent most of the '90s playing in bands. I can still lay some bass tracks if there is a need. I can also improvise dialogue with the sound turned down on the TV.

Q: Can I have $50?

A: YOU CAN HAVE $5,000!!! By the way, you guys are a bunch of banditos when it came time to answer this question.
