FRED EMMINGS: 10 things you don’t know about me

1. One random skill I have is …

“I’m pretty good at Rocket League. It’s a video game. It’s like soccer with cars. You drive and you hit the ball. I’m really good at it. If anyone wants to play me, let me know. You can add me on Xbox.”

2. I’m motivated to work hard because …

“I work the hardest at the things I love doing. So, I mean, I love playing soccer, so it makes me want to work hard.”

3. My go-to music I listen to while I’m driving is …

“See, I’m one of those people that I don’t have a genre of music that I enjoy, I literally listen to anything as long as I like it. So, I have music that ranges from Trippie Redd all the way to Billie Eilish. It really doesn’t matter what kind of song it is as long as I enjoy listening to it. But usually my mom picks. She’s usually in charge of that, because she’s driving.”

4. My favorite family tradition is …

“I’ve gotta say – I don’t know if you would call it a tradition – but: game night. We have some game nights. We’re super competitive. Those are really fun. Do you know the game Codenames? It’s really fun. That one gets really competitive. We used to play Settlers of Catan, some cards games. But we really play a lot of Codenames.”

5. My daily ritual is …

“I play music while I’m getting ready every single day. That kind of sets the tone. Music is a huge part of my life … But I’ve never been to a concert. It’s on my to-do list.”

6. One of my pet peeves is …

“It’s gotta be when people don’t make eye contact when you’re shaking hands or greeting them.”

7. What I love most about Minnesota …

“I was going to say the weather. I mean, a lot of people hate Minnesota weather. It’s kind of fun waking up and not knowing what the day is going to be like. The people. I mean, we’ve got some great people here, don’t we? And my favorite thing to do in Minnesota, it’s got to be go to a Minnesota United game. What else!”

8. My biggest hero(s) are …

“My parents. They know everything. Everything about them. What isn’t good about your parents? They always have advice, they always help you. They’re the people that you look up to always and they’re always there.”

9. Something I always have with me when I travel …

“Other than headphones? I mean, it’s gotta be headphones, right? You can’t go anywhere without headphones. Maybe a charger or something? You gotta have your phone.”

10. My favorite meal is …

“It’s got to be eggs. You can do so many things with eggs. There’re so many different things you can put in them. With toast. Bagels. It’s endless. Breakfast is my favorite meal.”
