Were you named after anyone?
I was not named after anyone, but my mom made up the spelling to my middle name (Nycole). My grandmother wasn’t too pleased at first because it didn’t properly sound out “Nicole,” so my parents decided to pronounce it phonetically, with an emphasis on the ‘Y.’ Oh, and I am also not related to Tex Schramm, although my dad did meet him once, and Tex told him that our family must’ve “dropped an ‘M’ somewhere!”
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip. But it HAS to be the green kind with the chocolate flakes. Not chips!
What shoes from your collection do you wear the most?
Out of my current shoe collection, the ones that get the most wear are a pair of flip-flop flats that are dressy enough to wear to work, but comfy and casual enough to wear when I’m out and about. And you’d never know they were only 10 dollars!
What is your favorite fast-food chain?
My favorite fast food chain is Taco Bell. My typical order? Chicken quesadilla, cheesy gordita crunch, a crunch-wrap supreme, side of queso, side of sour cream. But only on cheat days.

I have been told that I can imitate people and voices really well, but don’t ask me on the spot because then I probably couldn’t do it.

What is the last thing that made you cry?
The last thing that made me cry was the last home game, right after we finish our pregame performance to “Thunderstruck” and we’re all lined up in the Miller Lite Club about to do player intros. It gets me every time.
Red or pink?
Do you collect anything?

Neither, regular tea.
Have you ever been addicted to any video game, computer game or phone game?
I am undefeated in Mario Kart (but I have to be Yoshi, and only on Nintendo 64. I keep it old school.) I absolutely love Dance Dance Revolution, and I am the Guitar Hero (did I mention I used to be a nanny? So it was all in the job description!).
Do you have any pets?
I have a Pit mix named Brewsky and a Shepherd mutt named Lacie. And, my family recently took in another rescue Pit mix and we named him Tex. They are all sweet as can be and wouldn’t hurt a fly. And they all think they’re tiny lap dogs.
What kind of sandwich did you take to school as a child?
I don’t remember what kind of sandwich I took. All I remember is having a Spiderman lunchbox and getting teased by all my classmates for having a “boy’s” lunchbox. So from then on I made my mom pack my lunch in a brown paper bag.

My all time favorite band is Something Corporate.
Have you ever been out of the country? If so, where?

If you HAD to change your name, what would it be?
When I was in the second grade, I told my teacher that my mom changed my name to Tracy because I really wanted that name for some odd reason. I even wrote it on all my school papers and in my diary.

It was the name of an adorable little girl I used to nanny and it grew on me.
