    “On the Spot: Daniel Basubas, environmental science sophomore”

    You seem really tired. What is going on in your life?

    Ah, I’m just so busy with all my schoolwork and tests and projects. I’m beat from all this college ish.

    Did you attend any social events this past week?

    Yeah, I went to a concert on Monday, Jimmy Eat World at Rialto. It was pretty awesome, they were pretty good.

    I think I liked them in like 8th grade. Are you a Blink fan, Sum 41 and all that?

    Yeah, I was when I was in middle school.

    What is the most awkward situation that you have ever been in in your life?

    OK, you can’t just put me on the spot like this.

    This section is called ‘On the Spot’ for a reason, but OK, to be more specific: What is the most awkward date you have ever been on?

    I don’t know.

    In response to your San Diego t-shirt, how mad are you that the Chargers have been losing?

    I’m sort of mad because we’re supposed to doing better, but we’re not, and our offense sucks and our defense isn’t clicking.

    Who do you think is going to be at the top of the NFL this year?

    Detroit’s looking pretty good. I think the Falcons have a good running game.

    Who is on your Fantasy Football team?

    Ryan Matthewson, he sucks; Ray Rice sucks, too; Michael Vick — I got him before everybody thought he was going to be good, and they were like, ‘screw him,’ but I was thinking Michael Vick.

    How old were you the first time you ever told a girl that you loved her?

    I’ve never told a girl that I loved her, except for my mom.

    How are you going to know when it’s the right girl?

    All girls are the right girl, they just don’t get my love.

    Tell us the story of when you bought a girl flowers.

    When I was going out with my girlfriend for a year, I didn’t buy her anything on Valentine’s Day and she got really mad. So I went out and I bought her flowers after she was mad, the next day.

    Precious. What is your ideal gift to receive from a Valentine, or an anniversary?

    You don’t want to know.
