What was your welcome-to-the-big-leagues moment?
Walking into the clubhouse and seeing everybody congratulate me. It was in August. That whole thing was like, You're here.

Your favorite off-day activity?
Chick flicks are good. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is one of my favorites. They're funny, and maybe I learn something from them.
