Just look at the back of my helmet for this one… GO TIGERS!

5. What’s something most people don’t know about you?

When I was a kid, I had a hamster named Bilbo Baggins. True to his name, he went on little adventures through the house. His most notable adventure was when, after a particularly long absence from his cage, I heard a scratch-scratch-scratching down an air vent in the floor. Upon dropping down a bit of cloth for traction, I could feel him struggling to make his way up the steep incline. He heaved himself up, and appeared in the opening. His hair was disheveled; dirt was smudged across his tiny face. He reached the floor and collapsed, panting and exhausted from the effort. I scooped him up and delivered him to his cozy bed, where he slept for some time. He never spoke of the trip, and I knew it had affected him immensely. It was quite some time before he escaped again.
