tmidgley: EvilE… now then…. I am guessing there might be a story behind that name…
EvilE: Yeah my name is Erik, and friends just started calling me “Evil E” LOL! Evil E was the DJ for Ice T back in the day…..
tmidgley: ah… back when Ice T wasn’t an actor
EvilE: exactly! I’m old!
tmidgley: The start off question gives you a chance to tell us a little about yourself… go for it….
EvilE: I was born in Minneapolis Minn, grew up in Denver, and now live in Mesa, AZ (for the lat 19 years). I am Married, no kids yet (working on that) and have 2 dogs, 3 cats, and a Bearded Dragon!
tmidgley: Bearded Dragon? What the hell is that?
EvilE: It’s a lizard from Australia
tmidgley: I’m making my best flapping tongue noise right now, but you cant hear it….
tmidgley: Well, how on earth did you become a Cowboys fan living no where near Dallas?
EvilE: My dad and brother both watched football all the time when I was growing up, and I always saw the Cowboys on TV–Dorsett, Butch Johnson, Drew Pearson etc. etc.—I liked the helmets and wanted a team to cheer for of my own, and chose them–at around the age of 4 or 5! 26 years later, I still cheer them on!
tmidgley: Nice… gotta love life long fans… So hometown Mesa… what’s your favorite bar for those of us who may someday visit?
EvilE: a place called Thunder Pass–it is near me, and is a restaurant/sports bar/ club all in one! It is great, and the food is nice also!
tmidgley: Thunder Pass…. sounds fun… favorite drink?
EvilE: Fat tire, but I kinda stick to Miller Lite, to keep my nice figure! LOL!
tmidgley: Yeah… right… Who is your favorite rookie in the tank right now?
EvilE: I would say 4thandGoal–he pmï¿½d me for advice on his game, and he took it, and won big time, and gave me couple sandollars for his thanks! He didn’t have to do that–nice guy!
tmidgley: ah yes…. good old sand dollars… What tank/forum do you spend the most time in?
EvilE: I go all around, but post mainly in the main tank
tmidgley: And what tank do you wish you spent more time in if any….
EvilE: Well, the NHL, but they are in a lockout as you know, so it’s a bummer–I love to watch hockey
tmidgley: The NHL is in a lockout… What’s the one thing in the tank that you would like to see improved…. ?
EvilE: I know it sounds corny, but I like pretty much everything about it! I do dislike the spammers that post their website to try to recruit us all, but I don’t know how that is to be avoided.
tmidgley: Whatï¿½s your favorite way to spend sand dollars and what would you like to see more of as far as a way to spend that dough?
EvilE: I don’t really pay a lot of attention to the sand dollars–I kinda forget about them, so I haven’t spent any. It would be cool to be able to get like a fantasy sharks t-shirt or something I suppose.
tmidgley: Any thoughts to poker or the weekly bets that seem to occurring more lately?
EvilE: I don’t know how to play poker, so no, but the bets seem like a fun thing.
tmidgley: We know your favorite team is Dallas… whatï¿½s your superbowl prediction for the record?
EvilE: Indy, and I hate to say it, but Philly–Indy will win it all I believe.
tmidgley: ouch…. that will rub a lot of people wrong this week coming from a Dallas fan… what do you think about all the hype in the tank this week on that subject?
EvilE: I think people are getting way to emotional about it. Tempers are flaring, and things being said, with put downs etc. etc.. I have done some of that too, but it’s only a game, not the end of the world! But I would love to see the Cowboys win it of course! Go Cowboys!!
tmidgley: Good luck with that… Sleeper of the year for the rest of the season?
EvilE: I don’t know if he’s still a sleeper, and I may be biased, but I love what Julius Jones has been doing! He is trying to stay on Parcelï¿½s good side, and secure his spot as the teams back of the future, so I don’t see him slowing down.
tmidgley: How about Dud?
EvilE: Plummer–as in Jake “shouldabeena” Plummer
tmidgley: Interesting choice… How would you rate your advise in the tank on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest? You can break it out into FF/non FF if you wantï¿½
EvilE: I seem to give others better advice than I give myself–I say 8
tmidgley: Cool… on to the speed roundï¿½. Lemonade or limeade
tmidgley: Jack Daniels or Guinness
tmidgley: Favorite TV show? (old and new)
EvilE: Oh boyï¿½. I don’t really watch much TV these days except sports
tmidgley: Favorite Movie? (old and new)
EvilE: Goodfellas and the Sixth sense
tmidgley: Favorite vice?
tmidgley: uhh…. crack? Women? food? beer….. etc…
EvilE: LOL! Of course! Women/beer with sports and videogames right up there!
tmidgley: Favorite ex president?
tmidgley: Legs or breasts?
tmidgley: Butter or Margarine?
tmidgley: Old school or new?
EvilE: old school
tmidgley: Favorite swear word?
tmidgley: nice… end of speed round… two more questions… first is one is who are your most respected people in the tank…. Send a shout out here!!!!
EvilE: Man there are so many! Of course you (tmidgley), 5xchamps, Lundy, 3rd and real real long, squidward, footballjunkie, Paddler, FFchick, there are many others!
tmidgley: all right, last question, your on a desert island… you get one song and one shark to listen to, what and who?
EvilE: LOL!!! What a question! I would probably say FF chick, cause if I were on a desert island, I would certainly want to be with a chick, and the song would have to be “What it’s like” by Everlast—or any song by Everlast/and or House of Pain–big big fan!!
tmidgley: awesome… great interview EvilE… welcome to the elite in the Tank… may you bring many more posts to a great community!!!
