In this edition of the Cheap Seats, we sit down with baseball’s Andrew Sterup ’19 to discuss penguins, Taylor Swift song, and the apocalypse.
Echo: The apocalypse has begun. What are three items you bring to help you survive it and why?
Andrew Sterup: A tent for shelter, a backpack for storage and carrying things, and a machete because machetes are cool.
Echo: What is your spirit animal and why?
AS: A golden retriever because I’m pretty happy and outgoing.
Echo: What do you think about when you’re alone in the car?
AS: If I stare out the window for a long time, I bet it looks like I’m in a music video.
Echo: Which Taylor Swift song are you and why?
AS: “22” because I dress kind of like a hipster sometimes.
Echo: You’re stuck on a desert island with one of your teammates. Who do you bring and why?
AS: Matt [Treveloni ’18]. He was a boy scout for a year when he was a kid.
Echo: A penguin walks through the door wearing a cowboy hat. What does he say and why is he here?
AS: “I’m the sheriff of the South Pole, and I’m hankering for a drink.” Seems like a perfectly reasonable situation, I bet the South Pole needs law and order.
Echo: Funniest teammate?
AS: Dan Schoenfeld [’18], no question.
