GETTING TO KNOW KRETSCHMAN

I live in California. I am originally from Long Island, NY. I love sports. I am a huge New York Yankee fan. In fact I have the Yankee logo tattooed on the top of my foot. I love Japanese steak house food and Italian food. Right now I am totally into watching football. You can say I pretty much eat, live, and breathe sports. I enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding, and just hanging out with my friends. I love sitting on the couch and watching good movies. My birthday is August 26, 1979. I am pretty much a neat freak and it drives some of my friends crazy. I like to have a good time and will pretty much do anything to have fun. I love watching most reality shows and the Bravo channel. Right now my favorite show is Grey’s Anatomy.
