Chillin' with ... Johnny Oduya

Friday, 03.27.2009 / 10:00 PM / Chillin'

By Adam Schwartz - Staff Writer

What's on your iPod now?"Nowadays everybody has a lot of songs on their iPod, but I don't have that many songs. I try to mix it up, though. The most that I have on there is '90's hip hop, a little bit of '80's stuff and some dance music from Europe."

What are your favorite websites?"My homepage is a Swedish news Web site because that is my Swedish update. I also like YouTube because you can find anything on there."

Who would play you in a movie about your life?"Denzel Washington would be cool, but I doubt they would make a movie about me."

Favorite TV show?"I'm not a big TV guy. I like movies and HBO, but I don't like TV shows that much."

What Hollywood starlette would you go out with?"I would date Jessica Biel."

Favorite sports team of all time?"I was always a fan of AIK and Djurgardens hockey and soccer teams, which are Swedish teams. The funny part is growing up I played for both teams so I was a fan of both."

Describe your hometown of Stockholm, Sweden:"I go back there in the summers and it's colder than New Jersey, but summertime is great in Stockholm. It's always a special time to go home."

What do you think of the opportunity of playing for Sweden in the next Olympics?"It's tough and there's a lot of good players trying for spots. Any time you get a chance to play for your national team it's a great honor and it's tough to try to play that well. The Olympics are the biggest international event except for maybe the World Cup, but it's a little bit less than a year away so I have to keep playing well. You have to have a good year next year to make the team. I think that some guys will drop off and other guys will stand out and have a better year next year. Even to be in the discussion is awesome. I guess we'll see, but it would be unbelievable."
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
