In the Pro's Questionnaire, our favorite sports figures take an abridged version of the most famous personality test, the Proust Questionnaire. Atlanta Braves pitcher and three-time MLB All-Star Tim Hudson is up. He talks about one of his pet peeves, his ugly feet and determination to play guitar.
Your main fault:
Tim Hudson: I have some bad feet. But really, my main fault would probably be my personality. A lot of times I am not serious enough. I joke around too much sometimes.
Your idea of happiness:
TH: Seeing my family and kids happy.
Your idea of misery:
TH: Seeing my family hurting in any way. When your kids are sad or your wife is sad or somebody in your family is emotionally down a little bit, it sucks.
If not yourself, who would you be:
TH: My 7-year-old son, Gabe. He's pretty cool and has a pretty good gig going right now.
Hero/heroine you admire the most:
TH: My dad. He worked really hard to raise his family and did a really good job with not a lot. He did construction work and that's never an easy thing. As I grew, I watched how he went about his business and did the best he could.
Your favorite food/drink:
TH: Thai food and any drink with an umbrella in it.
What do you hate the most:
TH: I hate when people don't keep their word or they are late. Tardiness is a big pet peeve of mine.
What is a talent you would like to posses:
TH: Playing a musical instrument. I practice on the acoustic guitar a little bit, but I think I have reached the peak of my talent.
Your present state of mind:
Your greatest fear:
TH: Crashing in an airplane.
Most treasured possession:
TH: That would have to be my three kids (ages: 6, 7 and 10).
Your greatest extravagance:
TH: My house. We just built a house that is way bigger than I need. It has a pool, weight room and theatre room. These things are nice, not a necessity, but definitely nice to have. I never thought I would have it. So I am pretty proud of it.
