Q: If you won a lottery jackpot of $100 million, what's the first thing you would do with the money?

A: The first thing I would do is give back to my high school [Catholic Memorial in Waukesha, Wis.]. They need a new football stadium. I'd also probably take my wife [Allison], who is eight months and one week pregnant, on a nice vacation, because she deserves it after what she's gone through in the summer.

Q: What food will you not touch?

A: Olives. Can't stand them. Black ones, green ones. We actually had this conversation the other day. Someone had olives in their salad and it made me sick to look at them. I've just never liked them.
