Brian Giles Interview

Here's an old Brian Giles Interview from 2004 that I haven't seen before. The whole interview is pretty funny, but here are some of the better answers. Gotta love Giles.

Hobbies/interests: "I like to tan. Golf. Shave [smiles]."
Early baseball memory: "When I used to pee in my pants and I'd do a head-first slide, then it'd be all muddy, so they couldn't see I'd wet my pants [smiles]."
Favorite breakfast cereal: "It's either Fruity Pebbles or Lucky Charms, toss-up."
Funny baseball memory: "Funny one? Spring Training -- my first Spring Training with San Diego. After a game, Nevin was washing my back in the showers, that was kind of funny [laughter]."

Favorite uniforms: "I like Barry Sanders, Oklahoma State. Oh, baseball uniforms ... I don't know. I don't really have any favorite uniforms. I wish we didn't wear shirts on day games, so it wouldn't mess our tans up."

Funniest players: "Nev's pretty funny. Khalil Greene's funny too. He's quiet but he's funny."

Maybe we can make a list about Giles and his quirky behavior.

1. Loves to Tan
2. Shaves all body hair... all of it!
3. Loves being naked
4. Kisses teammates regularly
5. Only person that can make Khalil laugh

What else?
