1) Why do you collect cards and who/what influenced you to start? I collect for the excitement of seeing what I'm going to pull and I'm really into sports themselves. My dad influenced me to start. He has since he was a kid and he still does.
2) Who is your biggest role model? Derek Jeter. He's my favorite baseball player and he inspires me to play sports and enjoy them.
3) What is the most recent "nice thing" or "good deed" you have done for someone?I gave some kid my extra money for lunch because he forgot his.
4) Who was the "someone" from question 3?A kid in my school.
5) What is your favorite subject in school and why?Language Arts because I'm good at writing and I kind of like it.
6) What grades do you get in school? A's and B's
7) Are you on the honor role?Yes
8) Do you volunteer for any committees or organizations?I once raised over $5,000, with some other people, for my neighbors whose house burned down. I guess you could consider it a committee if you want.
9) Do you play sports?Yes. I play baseball and I'm going out for football in high school.
10) What NFL team do you collect? Giants
11) What would you like to be when finished with school?I want to be an NFL wide receiver. But more realistically I want to be a dentist.

All those who answered Dad or Mom for role model should advance to the next round. All those who didn't say Dad, Mom or even Bam shouldn't. The one who put Arod should be tested immediately.

I like what jlzinck did, so I am going to do the same.
1) Why do you collect cards and who/what influenced you to start? I collect because I really like baseball. My uncles have cards, so I guess they were a big influence, as well as my mom.
2) Who is your biggest role model? Mom
3) What is the most recent "nice thing" or "good deed" you have done for someone? Helped get an abused kid out of an abusive home
4) Who was the "someone" from question 3? A classmate (didn't seem him again after that...very sad indeed)
5) What is your favorite subject in school and why? Math because it was easy for me
6) What grades do you get in school? Mostly E's and some S's (usually for being to darn talkative in class)
7) Are you on the honor role? Indeed I am
8) Do you volunteer for any committees or organizations? I help my mom with PTA stuff when she asks
9) Do you play sports? Of course! Kickball, yellow square, handball and baseball
10) What NFL team do you collect? Broncos, Seahawks, Rams, Raiders, 49ers and Redskins
11) What would you like to be when finished with school? A lawyer
12) How old are you? The big 1-0!
