Meet Columbus Parent Frankie Hejduk, Brand Ambassador for the Columbus Crew
What is the most played song on your iPod right now? Anything Bob Marley. We have a nightly dance session before bath time. If you HAD to be on a reality-TV show, which one would it be? "The Amazing Race" - I've already traveled around the globe for the past 20 years, so I think I would be pretty good at dealing with all the craziness that comes with traveling and getting around. Who is your favorite TV/movie parent? Anyone from "Modern Family." They're all pretty classic in their own ways. Which super hero would you like to be? Silver Surfer…that way I could still surf, even in Ohio!! Favorite thing to do for low- or no-cost family fun in Central Ohio: Go to all the awesome parks and pools. Favorite restaurant to take the kids: We like to go to Mellow Mushroom. They have great pizza and a cool hippy van that the kids think is from the movie "Cars." Favorite movie that you went to see with the kids: "Cars" Favorite way to spend a Saturday afternoon: Playing in the backyard - scootering, playing soccer, bubbles, tag, etc., and then getting ready for the Crew game. How would you spend a day all to yourself? Golfing. Best advice you ever received as a parent: Trust your parental instincts. What have you learned as a parent that you wish someone had told you before had that first kid? Take deep breaths and learn to be patient. Don't overreact. What's something your mom or dad did that you thought was nuts when you were a kid and now you understand? Curfew…I get it now!! Thanks, Mom and Dad, for giving me one!! Your life's motto: "Don't worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing is gonna be alright." That's from Bob Marley. That statement is so true. Don't sweat the small stuff - it all works out in the end!
