Getting Answers with Sean Bennett

1) Where are you from originally?  I was born in Chicago, but grew up in the Bay Area.

2) What’s the one thing about you that would surprise us?  I am an identical twin, my brother and I look the same and talk the same.

3) What do you like to do in your spare time?  I am a sports fanatic, I love the Giants and 49ers. I am very superstitious when it comes to game day. I don’t where any hats or shirts with the team logo on them. I won’t drink out of any cups that have logo’s on them, and will not leave my seat if my teams are losing to see if  the mojo turns around.

4) What’s the one place you’d like to visit that you’ve never been to before?  I would love to go on a European Vacation with my wife, not like the National Lampoon’s Movie.

5) iPhone or Android?  I am an iPhone fan! I thinks it’s one of the best inventions out there, and just love the weather app.  It helps on live shots, trips and just for day-to-day use.

6) What’s your favorite food?  I love food, and think about my next meal while I am eating my current meal.  I could not go without Mexican food. There are so many options, plus chips are always included.  I am a big fan of the Mom and Pop places, they just hit the spot.

7) What do you do for exercise?  I try my best to work out a few days a week at the gym while balancing life and kids.  I just completed my first half Marathon which was fantastic.
