Pregame Ritual: It's all about keeping the mood light. I'm definitely focused, but if I get too excited I tend to overdo it the first time I’m in. I'm always waiting for the nerves to kick in. It happens every game and tells me I’m ready to play. Oh, and I must have a piece of gum.
Favorite Quote: "It is both a blessing and a curse to feel everything so very deeply."
