Please welcome special guest Dominic Chekovsky to the virtual offices this morning. Dominic took some time away from his busy practice schedule to introduce himself, so give him a big hello!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Dominic Chekovsky] Dedicated, competitive, sincere, misunderstood, and sensitive. What? I am.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Dominic Chekovsky?
[Dominic Chekovsky] It’s all about hockey and Diana. I get up and plug in the coffee maker for Diana while I make a protein shake for myself. Usually this takes about an hour, because Diana strolls into the kitchen looking adorable with her curls going in every direction and distracts me. Then I head to the arena for hockey practice. I play hard. It’s going to be a banner season. By the evening, I’m ready to reconnect with Diana again and relax. We’re homebodies lately, preferring to entertain ourselves at home. She’s still trying to beat me in sock hockey. Once in awhile I let her win, because it benefits me. In two weeks, we’re taking a few days to travel to Cottage Grove and meet up with our friends.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to choose one moment that made you the person you are today, which would it be?
[Dominic Chekovsky] *grows serious* My parents. Their unending support and dedication in my career have made me the man I am today. My father gave me the advice as a young boy, "Whatever you do, throw your heart into it and you’ll always be happy." I think that’s true, don’t you?
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Diana?
[Dominic Chekovsky] Hot, Mouthy, Adorable. *sighs on a smile* She’s perfect for me.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you find most exasperating about her?
[Dominic Chekovsky] *scoots to the edge of his chair and lowers his voice* She argues a lot. Don’t tell her I said this, but her attitude drives me crazy. Sometimes I’ll argue with her just to set her off, so I can see the passion in her. She’s beautiful but when she fights, she steals my breath away.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Dominic Chekovsky] Ugh. I approached Diana all wrong back when I first met her. I’ve learned a lot about women since we got together, thanks to her. It all worked out for the best but if I would’ve known the secret to handling women, I would’ve stayed out of trouble early on in my career. I would’ve learned to say no to them sooner, before my life derailed.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Dominic Chekovsky] My car keys. Only because if I don’t take them with me, Diana steals my Porsche out of the garage. I’ve never seen a woman so attached to a car before. She drives way too fast.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Dominic Chekovsky] Babies. *grins and looks away* Yeah, babies with Diana.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
[Dominic Chekovsky] Thanks! It’s been fun. Don’t forget to watch the San Jose Sharks. We’re gonna kick ass this season.
