It’s Thursday and that means we have another NLLInsider.com Girl of the Week. Since Canada just finished hosting the Winter Olympics and their hockey team took gold, I thought I’d feature Dana, the captain of the Calgary Roughneck’s Drill Crew and a native syrup-drinking Canadian. Listen, Canada can have their hockey trinkets and they can keep their free health care, but I want Dana in the United States pronto. Somebody call the Queen or Gretzky or Nickleback, whoever makes the decisions up there and let’s trade make a trade before it’s too late. She’s hip, intelligent and one of the the sexiest Girl of the Week picks we’ve had thus far, so you guys are in for a treat. Enjoy the pictures and interview; I’m getting on the horn and working on Dana’s immigration status.

Insider: What do you love most about Calgary and the Roughnecks?

Dana: Calgary has been home for me for 25 years, I absolutely love the booming city and endless opportunities I’ve been given. This is my 8th season with the Roughnecks (Wow I’m getting old!) and it’s just like we’re a big family. We got a ton of support from the organization and fans, every season gets better and better.

Insider: Are you guys still celebrating that hockey game you guys won?

Dana: Yes Canadians pride themselves on hockey! It was a great game and the energy afterwards was just wild. Just like 6 years ago when the flames made it to the Stanley cup playoffs the whole city was involved.

Insider: How did you get where you are today?

Dana: Where do I begin? I’m a very driven ambitious individual with a lot of support from my family and friends. I’m one of those people who is constantly on the go, my schedule is jam packed and always has been.

Insider: What do you enjoy about NLL lacrosse?

Dana: It’s rough, entertaining and exciting

Insider: Do you like hard-hitting defense or tic-tac-toe offense?

Dana: I’d say offense. Its pretty exciting anticipating a goal.

Insider: Do you have a favorite player?

Dana: No but definitely enjoy watching the guys who have been with the team for a while….Mcbride, Kelusky, Toth.

Insider: What do you do outside of dancing?

Dana: I’m a financial advisor by day, and the Drill Crew Director every other moment I have, which keeps me pretty busy otherwise, always something to do on the go.

Insider: Any good stock tips?

Dana: Umm…talk to a stockbroker! Not my area of expertise as I deal with mutual funds. But in my opinion I would say its a great time to invest!

Insider: If you could have a super-power, what would it be and why?

Dana: I’d like to teleport places, it would be genius. No long plane rides the world would be my Oyster!

Insider: Ah, everyone says flying, and you finally out-smarted them and went right to the teleporting.

Dana: Not just a pretty face!

Insider: Worst pick up line you ever heard?

Dana: Geez, pick up lines are cheese-ball moves that I’m definitely not into.

Insider: Best pick up line you ever heard?

Dana: No such thing

Insider: So, correct me if I’m wrong, but it sounds like you love pick-up lines.

Dana: Pick up lines are basically pre-meditated thoughts of what you believe will win a woman over. It feels really unnatural and awkward! I just like naturally funny people who don’t try to hard.

Insider: What can a guy do to get noticed?

Dana: Be real, be funny. Funny gets big points! I love to laugh and have such a good time.

Insider: Any pets?

Dana: A cat named Sunny but she stays at my parents house so not quite. Don’t think Im home enough to have a pet.

Insider: Favorite Book?

Dana: Regretfully, I’m not a huge reader unless I’m on vacation, but right now I’m into some really interesting financial book that would probably bore most people.

Tip: Right click, save as, File
Tip: Right click, save as, File

Insider: Favorite Movie?

Dana: Elf continuously makes me laugh. Really anything with Will Ferrell is a solid deal. Hang over is pretty funny too.

Insider: What kind of Canadian trouble would you get yourself into if you went to Vegas with your dance crew?

Dana: Umm….. Guess I didn’t mention that we’re headed to Orlando in two weeks. 14 of us are going to the dance at the game out there against the Titans and to check out the city and what not. I can imagine we’ll get into some trouble… “What happens in Orlando stays in orlando?”

Insider: Favorite Food?

Dana: I love to be wined and dined! Sushi, sandwiches, Viet, late night Singnapore Sams (If you ever come to Calgary I recommend it!)

Insider: Sounds like you like some kick in your food, are you a hot sauce on everything kind of girl?

Dana: Yes love hot sauce!

Insider: Favorite TV show as a kid?

Dana: I was a big fan of Beverly Hills and the TGIF line up…..Step by Step, Boy meets world…etc

Insider: Now that you’ve matured, how appealing is a guy living in a van in his step-parent’s driveway? I don’t have a van, per se, but I do have a very spacious driveway for my box truck/bedroom.

Dana: Well I do have some standards! Although you might question that looking at some of my past relationships…haha, just kidding.

Insider: Dream vacation and/or best trip you’ve been on?

Dana: Got a couple of epic trips, when I graduated university last year one of my best friends and I went to Mexico and had a blast. Another one last year, for my birthday, was on Shuswap Lake with a great group of people, time of my life! Hot weather, boats and laughs, what more can you ask for?

Insider: Best date you’ve ever been on? hmm….. that’s a tough one. Nothing standing out too much, Probably the usual…..nice dinner, good bottle of wine etc.
