Q&A: Lackey talks Boston, guitar, baseball, football, food, more

(Continued)

Smitty: What do you enjoy when you’re not here and maybe during the offseason?

Lackey: Golf is definitely part of it. Huge football fan.

Smitty: Which is your favorite college football team?

Lackey: Well, I live in Fort Worth, Texas now so I’ve kind of adapted to TCU a little bit because it’s right there in town. Because I never went to a big school. I just went to a junior college. So I didn’t really go to a school with a (big) football team.

Smitty: Do you like college football more than the NFL?

Lackey: I have a suite at Cowboy Stadium so I go to Cowboys games. But then besides the Cowboys, I like that (college) better than pro actually.

Smitty: How old were you the first time you hit a homer over a fence when you were playing Little League?

Lackey: I think I was probably like 10. I remember my first one kind of hit the top of the fence and went over.

Smitty: Were your parents there to see it?

Lackey: My dad coached me in Little League pretty much all the time.

Smitty: Do you still talk baseball with him?

Lackey: My dad has been a high school baseball coach for years. He just retired, I guess, two years ago. So yeah, he doesn’t give me a whole lot of advice anymore. I’ve kind of been around it. It’s more just like a friend relationship nowadays.

Smitty: If you were a closer and had to pick an entrance song what would it be?

Lackey: I don’t know. I’ve got nothing but country on my iPod. So it would probably be some sort of country.

Smitty: So nothing to pump you up?

Lackey: I’d be motivated. I’m not sure how many other people would be.
