The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: I completely forgot a cheer that we were doing and I just started to dance around. The next day a kid in my class asked me why I was dancing while everyone else was cheering.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My iPod, sunglasses and my roommates.

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: My favorite sport is basketball, but my favorite sports team is the Colorado Rockies!
