We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Next up… the one and only Chris Doyle; BMX’s answer to Brad Pitt.

What would you be doing professionally right now if you weren’t doing what you are?
Television news anchor or Weatherman (duh).

What would you do today if it was your last day?
I would try to condense everything from my ideal weekend (below) into one day. Then, steal a convertible, grab the wife, and do the “Thelma And Louise” ending.

Best halloween costume you have worn?
The Joker – Jack Nicholson’s version (8 years old)

Best gift you have ever received?
I was just in my buddy, Greg’s wedding. For his groomsmen gifts he gave all of us replica bobble heads of ourselves. Mine is incredibly accurate.

What is the word you overuse the most? what word do you wish you used more?

Okay time for a “classic” – you’re stuck on a deserted island – 3 things you must have with you? Water, an endless supply of Peanut Butter + Banana sandwiches, Sunblock.

If you could trade places for 1 week with someone, who would it be and why?
I’d trade places with my dog, Crosby. Eat, sleep, shit, play, repeat.

What advice would you give to a younger you?
Purchase large amounts of stock in Apple.

Tell us something people don’t really know about you?
I have an excellent singing voice, or so I’m told.

What is something you thought was going to be easy but wasn’t?
That gap-to-rail in the trailer for “Squash It”. I told myself, “It’s just a double-peg grind, Chris”.

Who / what are your influencers in life – name five:
My Wife, Mom, Steve Buddendeck, Brian Foster, and Jeff Lebowski.

What are you saving up for?
The, hopefully, brief period when this career ends and a new one begins.

What would be your ideal weekend?
Trails, BBQ’s, and Bros on Saturday. Wife, dog, and hockey on Sunday. This weekend would, ideally, take place in Pennsylvania in October.

Would you rather hang Christmas lights when it’s freezing, or rake/bag leaves when its blazing hot?
Rake leaves in heat. The cold starts to hurt after a while.

When was the last time you stepped in dog shit?
Last summer while mowing my lawn. My dog is incredibly creative with how well he can hide his doo doos in our yard.

Are you guilty of answering a phone message with a text reply?
Not that I’m aware of, unless it read, “I call you back in a minute”. I always practice good phone etiquette.

If you happened to get into a fight, who is someone you would want in your corner?
Adam Rager – His hands are made of steel and he has the “knock out” technique down pat.

Have you ever been forced to watch the Notebook?
I don’t think i’ve ever been forced. However, I’ve seen it so many times, I can recite lines from it. Gosling is the man!
