Packers.com: What have you been able to do this offseason to get your mind off football?

Ahman Green: "I flew in a F-18 with the Blue Angels. I knew somebody who knew somebody that got me in to do a flyover. It was a lot of fun. It's kind of like a roller coaster but better. I didn't get sick, though."

Have you seen any good movies lately?

"Recently, I've been to see the Matrix Reloaded, The Hulk. I went to see Charlie's Angels just a few nights ago. I've been able to keep up with some of the summer action movies, not all of them. The Italian Job is pretty good too, but my favorite one recently is the Matrix Reloaded."

What's your favorite movie of all time?

"That's a long list. Probably the original Matrix, Die Hard and Friday."

What's the strangest autograph request that you have gotten?

"Probably when I signed the hood of a Ford Escort."

Who's been the biggest influence on your career?

"Outside of my parents, just the people that I've been around, good and bad. Just everybody from Seattle, coaches and players that I came into contact with, and the same here, have kind of molded me into the player that I am. Guys I played against, guys I played with, ever since little league. Those type of people have all influenced me in my life and in my football career."

If you could have dinner with three people (past or present) who would they be?

"God, Walter Payton, Michael Jordan"

What's the best thing about being a Packer?

"For myself, just to be able to play behind the tradition. I did it at college at Nebraska where there's tons of tradition, so I'm used to it. I'm not overwhelmed by it. I just have to continue on what the guys that came before me did so that when the next guy comes in after me, he can carry that tradition on."

Who's the funniest guy on the team?

"It used to be Nate Wayne, but Donald Driver's pretty funny. Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila is funny. Mark Tauscher is funny. Actually, he's just funny to look at."

Who is the best dressed player on the team?

"Nate at one point, but probably Rob Davis or Donald Driver."

What is your favorite TV show?

"Cosby Show."

Do you watch any Reality TV?

"I watch the Real World every now and then and some other stuff. But pretty much everything that's on TV now is a reality show."

Do you have any superstitions?

"I try to do the same thing. I always get out of bed on the left side. Even if I'm on the right side, I always try to step out on the left. I have some other ones but I think I'll keep those to myself."

What's your most embarrassing play?

"I'd say for myself, it was a most embarrassing game. I hope nobody really looked at it. I did because I had tons of fumbles. In my second year in Seattle, in a preseason game against the Colts, I had about 5 or 6 fumbles, actually 3 or 4 fumbles, but I ran the wrong way on some plays."

Can you cook?

"Yes. I'm pretty good with any type of barbecue."
