Q. What's your favorite Dustin play?

A. By far my favorite play was the first game of the World Series when he led off with a home run. He's going to kill me for saying this, but now it's depicted on our game room wall in a huge mural . . . looking down on Fenway Park with Dustin up to bat, and we have it showing where he hit the home run, into the Green Monster seats.

Q. What's his biggest quirk? Something weird he does?

A. He's ridiculous. He's the funniest person you'll ever meet. We're obsessed with reality TV shows. He watches "The Bachelor," "American Idol." I'm just calling him out now. (She laughs.)

Q. Do you two go out much?

A. We are big-time homebodies. If there's an off-day, we are most happy spending time at home together, me cooking a homemade dinner just because we don't usually have time for that. We love to have our friends over in the off-season. He likes anything Mexican.

Q. What was your college major? Any career plans?

A. I was a family and child development major. [Someday] if I were to be in a career, I'd like to be a child life specialist working at a cancer hospital with kids going through cancer. It's like me volunteering at the Jimmy Fund. That's exactly what I want to be doing [in a career].

Q. Do you and your husband vote?

A. We didn't vote this year, and that's our goal. We're both going to vote. We've both just changed our driver's licenses to Arizona. Right now, I think I support McCain. Dustin is McCain, also.

Q. How do you like Boston?

A. It was a drastic change for us to come to Boston, where he can't walk anywhere [without being recognized]. It's both good and bad. There's nothing like a Red Sox fan, though. We're spoiled. We go to other ballparks, like Tampa Bay, and there's nobody there. They could care less about baseball. And we come here, and they're just so passionate. They were even in Japan, Red Sox fans going crazy.
