Not really. Some people call me Herbie. When I was a kid, I had a couple of nicknames. For about a month, my brother teased me and called me Egbert, after a character in a W.C. Fields movie.
What were you like as a kid?
I was tall and skinny, and I tried lot of different things to put on weight. I used to have a powdered breakfast drink with every meal. I also kept a checklist on the refrigerator to record all the food I ate. But I never succeeded in gaining weight.
What sports do you play?
I play touch football, baseball, and basketball. I like baseball and basketball the best. And in high school, I played lacrosse.
Do you have any questions for Herb? He'll answer some in a future issue. Send them to:
