    Thanks to Barnstable for last weeks round of this off-season thread. He picked Pound4Pound. After this week, Pound4Pound will pick someone new.

    Same ground rules: Ask questions to get to know the member. Not limited to the Lakers, basketball, or sports, but those are to be included. If you ask something he deems too personal for whatever reason, he can simply choose not to answer.

    I'm starting it off with the same generic questions I asked the others.

    Who's is pound for pound the best fighter of all time?

    Have you ever fired a Gun - yes i have...planning on getting a .45 or a glock before the year is over

    Been Married. - no, just getting out of a 4yr relationship.?' This after getting out of a 4yr relationship previously...ugly cycle

    Fell in love. - yes, i need better armor for cupid's arrows

    Swam in an ocean. - yes, in the warm beaches of Cali and in the clear waters of Philippine beaches.

    Gone on blind date. - yes, in my 20s before the interwebs made dating as easy as ordering socks online, i would let my knucklehead friends set me up with the headcases they thought i would like.

    Skipped school. - too many times in College...having access to a car and not having to go to class was a bad combo for me.

    Watched someone give birth. - not in person, only in ex ed tapes...brutal stuff

    Been to Canada. - its on the bucketlist. the fellas and i plan on renting a nice RV and driving up the coast to Canada. Take turns driving. I hope noone derails it and drives to Vegas instead.

    Been to Hawaii. - on a stop over for like an hour. people ask what if ive been to Hawaii and what i did, i tell them i peed and bought a sammich.

    Been to Alaska. - no, im tropical. going to the cold is not high on the list

    Been to Europe. - no, that's also on the bucket list. im at that age where i wanna see more monuments and see the world. 3 of my buds were planning a trip this summer but the terror attacks scared them off. They went to Thailand instead.

    Been to Las Vegas. - yes, at least twice a year. I love buffets and places with no clocks on the wall.

    Been to Washington D.C. -no, i wanted to go when i was a kid and meet the president. Too late now that i've formed opinions.

    Been to Nashville. - no, but my sister goes EVERY year...she's a huge country fan and i guess they have some annual thing there. Like a giant country music rave.

    Visited Florida. - yes, i was in Florida for about 3 days prior to boarding a cruise ship that was bound for the Bahamas. The humidity was glorious.

    Visited Mexico. - yes, when we go to SD for Raider games. Somehow, someway, we end up in TJ.

    Seen the Grand Canyon in person. -yes, i was 8yrs old when i saw one of the Wonders Of The World. Old pictures dont do it justice. Majestic and breathtaking.

    Flown in a HELICOPTER. -no, i have a fear of heights and i would probably be too passed out to enjoy that ride.

    Been on a cruise. - yes, part of my Florida experience was getting on The Big Red Boat. Gambling on a cruise only requires you to be 18 so i had a blast at the time.

    Served on a jury. -no, although I've REALLY REALLY wanted to be selected. I want to be part of the entire trial process.

    Been in a movie. -no, i have the face for radio.

    Been to Los Angeles. - yes, my hometown...Traffic mecca of the US.

    Been to New York City. - yes, on business so i wasnt able to sightsee the way i wanted to.

    Played in a band. -yes, but not the cool bands with groupies or anything. I played the sax in junior high.

    Sang karaoke. - yes, i think its a moral obligation to sing Karaoke at least 700 times if you're Filipino. Even if you suck at it.

    Made prank phone calls? -yes, as a former telemarketer that would get frustrated while needing to reach 80 calls a day, i would dabble in buffoonery.

    Laughed so much you cried. - yes, for much of Byron's tenure as head coach. Those laughs that turn to sorrow.

    Caught a snowflake on your tongue. -yes, in Big Bear then my friends reminded me about pollution and what im putting in my body. Love my killjoy homies.

    Have children - not that im aware of. I've partied hard in places that i never went back to.

    Have a pet. - no, i used to have a gold fish. I want a dog tho.

    Been sledding on big hill. -yes, and i totally ate it in front of co-workers. It still gets brought up at dept parties. Good times.

    Been downhill skiing. -no, for some reason skiing scares the crap out of me.

    Been water skiing. -no, this doesnt scare me as much but i would love to try this.

    Rode on a motorcycle. -yes, back home we have these things called tricycles, common transportation for short distances.

    Rode a motorcycle. -yes, was a big fan of bikes and even had intentions of getting one until a close buddy of mine almost died.

    Jumped out of a plane. -no, just watching videos of people jumping out of planes makes me queasy.

    Been to a drive-in movie. -no, they closed the place near my old house right before i was old enough to drive.

    Rode an elephant. -no. (i'll leave the classless, sexist humor out)

    Been on TV. -yes, i went to the 2010 Lakers Championship parade. I was told i was i was on tv. Thanks for not recording it, fellas.

    Been in newspaper. -no, but i did write a letter to Bill Dwyre once talking about how i missed Jim Murray's words and his views on boxing and Bill replied!

    Stayed in Hospital. -yes, been to the hospital quite a bit this year for other family members. For myself, no.

    Donated blood. -yes. I make an honest effort to donate whenever the Red Cross visits the workplace.

    Gotten a piercing. -yes, in College. Then my job told me to take it off. I forgot to put it back in and it closed up.

    Gotten a tattoo. -yes, i have a heritage piece on my right arm. Would like to add to it and make it a quarter sleeve.

    Driven a stick shift vehicle. -yes, I miss driving stick.

    Driven over 100 mph. -yes, the ole G35 Coupe used to get me passed 100 on the 134FWY at 1am. Only when it was clear. I'm too wimpy/responsible to try that with any other cars on the road.

    Been scuba diving. -yes, in the bahamas. Loved it!

    snorkeling. -yes, in Boracay, Philippines. Its a soothing feeling to be absolutely surrounded by tropical fish. In clear water with the sun beaming down on you.

    Lived on your own. -yes, Ramen Noodles 4 LIFE.

    Rode in the back of police car. -no, this law abiding citizen has always kept himself in check in public.

    Got a speeding ticket. -no, but i wish i had one instead of the running-a-red which cost a whopping $500

    Best movie you saw this year (so far) -ooohhh...tough one. I'll go with Captain America Civil War.

    Last book you read: Icewind Dale Trilogy (Goblins, Wizards, Orcs) by R.A. Salvatore. Yes, i get nerded out on stuff like that.

    What was the last practical joke you played? ok, this literally happened last week: a co-worker and buddy of mine (the one that almost died from he motorcycle accident) and his wife recently got started on Game Of Thrones. This is after months of urging from yours truly. So last Tuesday, i get a text from him at 10pm saying 'WTF They killed Ned!!! i effing hate that Joffrey". I got a good chuckle and told him to keep at it and things get crazier. The next day, since i work with him, i sent him an e-mail with the subject line: URGENT_Unpaid Invoices_ACTION REQUIRED. I started it off professionally saying 'Good morning, Richie' so that's all he would see on the preview and would have to open the e-mail. In the body of the e-mail was a huge poster of Joffrey on the Iron Throne with a smug look on my face. My buddy walked to my desk and said that i literally ruined his pleasant morning by reminding him on Ned's death. Weak salsa, I know but that's how it is nowadays.

    Favorite Laker moment? -Magic's baby hook at the Garden.

    NBA player you hate: -Blake Griffin. His face just irks the hell out of me.

    Nba player you think is overrated: -Lebron. The guy has his own sports station.

    Nba player that you think is underrated: -Kawhi Leonard. The guy does so much on both sides of the ball.

    Nba player that you love: I love Lillard's game and alphaness

    Nba player you secretly love: Steph. I might come across as a Warrior hater at times but boy, do i love watching that dude go off when he's in a zone. Nothing is 'too much'. It's almost Kobe-esque.

    Favorite Nba player of all time: Magic

    Nba G.O.A.T is: Magic

    this screen name was my first in 2003 in a forum called East Side Boxing

    i wanted a boxing related name and this one just stuck...when i signed up for CL, i kept it and since most of you fellas know me by that handle, i used it when i jumped aboard here...to avoid any confusion

    A typical day begins like most people; hitting the snooze button once or 4 times around 830am

    Then mulling in bed looking at my calendar and weather app... This is to see if I can get away with wearing shorts and sandals to work

    Then after making my morning coffee, I'm off on the lovely 101 freeway where I listen to classical music during my commute..i found that it soothes any road rage quite effectively

    When I get to work, 10yr anniversary this month, I say hello to my team..i get along well with them, fortunately enough for me

    I open my emails to see what fire drills happened over night and address and issues that need attention

    I alternate weeks of healthy and horrible eating.. Lunch is around 1pm

    I finish my work day around 6pm and if I'm not going to the gym, make my trek home

    After dinner, I usually meet up with the fellas for drinks where we talk about each other's days, go over current events and talk sports till the brew runs out

    Then I go home a little before midnight, reflect on what happened that day then get to bed

    Rinse and repeat

    Not secret agent, spy stuff but that's my life of mild saucity
