Erik is a big-time sports fan. Patriots, Celtics, Bruins--in that order (he hasn't really been a Red Sox fan since Manny left). He also has a quasi-encyclopedic knowledge on anything related to the NFL and Super Bowl's. Besides sports, he's a huge movie guy, so if you love James Bond and/or Leslie Nielsen comedies, you'll get along. Lastly, his friends call him 'Mando,' so that's what you can call him, too.
