Daren: (on his most embarrassing moment) My freshman year in high school, I was playing ball and we were practicing before a game and this pop up came real high up in the air, in the sun and I lost it.... and it hit me right in the you know what. It's very rare for that to happen with a fly ball, usually it happens with a ground ball. Everyone there couldn't believe I'd do something like that, it was pretty funny.
