Oh yeah, tons. I watch a lot of Nashville and Big Brother. I really like those shows.

I want to finish what we started last year. It would be greta to get back there.

What are you looking forward to most this season?

The World Cup was awesome - a lot of fun. Toronto is a really cool city with great energy. And you know, winning always makes it better.
