So, you’re kind of a Chipotle fan, I understand?
Gerard: Yeah, real big fan. Love it, it’s one of my favorite foods.
What’s your favorite order there?
Gerard: I don’t know -- it depends on the day. I like it all. I’d say my most common thing is I get hardshell chicken tacos. Really good.
Did you get to eat any of the free McDonald’s provided at the Olympics?
Gerard: I didn’t actually, that was down in the coastal village and we were up in the mountain village. I wish that would have been awesome, I could have used that juice. That would have been nice.
What’s the breakfast of champions?
Gerard: I don’t know, I just kind of go with the flow and eat whatever. I think that morning I had some oatmeal?
How do you deal with pressure?
Gerard: I don’t know, it’s kind of a funny thing. I kind of just go through it. I never really thought I was going to be in the Olympics, so I never really felt the pressure of it. But you sometimes get nervous up at the top and all that. You just have to focus on snowboarding and focus on what I’m there to do.
If you didn’t snowboard, what would you do?
Gerard: I could be a golfer. I could just see myself out on the tees drinking an iced tea.
What do you like about golf?
Gerard: It’s just much different than what I do. It’s just so much different being in warm weather. The feeling of getting a good shot is so nice.
What sports are you really bad at?
Gerard: Everything besides snowboarding and skateboarding, I guess.
