Jen (San Jose): When are you going to dye your hair green? I love your hair!

Lacey (San Jose): What was your favorite of all of your hair styles?
Mark Smith: When I had it really long when I was 16.
Anthony Gonzalez (Hollister, California): Hey! Who was your favorite player growing up and why? I hope the rest of the season goes well for you. GO SHARKS!!
Mark Smith: I liked Mark Messier. He dished out some serious punishment.
Jena (San Jose): Hi! How are you? I was wondering, who on the team do you think is the funniest? Also, what do you like to do in your free time (other than music)? Thanks!
Mark Smith: I think Mark Bell is pretty funny. He makes me laugh. I like to surf when I'm not playing music.
Dan (Phillipsburg, NJ): Why do you wear number 16?
Mark Smith: Because 17 was taken. Scott Thornton had it, but I guess it's available right now. I couldn't change now.
Marti C. (Napa): Hey Mark, what's your most embarrassing moment of your hockey career?
