“Dangerboy” Andy Roberts

Holstein and Company Mornings
E-mail Andy

Dangerboy: You know they call me the Dangerboy, but you might not know how I got the name. It’s an ironic title because the things I used to do (dye myself like an Easter Egg) were hardly dangerous.

Dangergirl: My wife is Mary. We met when she won a “Date With Dangerboy” contest. There really wasn’t going to be a date, that’s just what we called the contest (it was Valentine’s Day). Her actual prize was a pair of tickets to see Trace Adkins in Danville, but we went together and have hardly been separated since.

Dangerdad: My wife Mary and I welcomed our first child on New Years Day 2010 (we were the third baby of the year in CU!). Her name is Rosalie.

Marathoning: I’ve run 7 marathons… but I’m done for a while; it’s a time commitment. I’ll continue to do half marathons and am really looking forward to the Illinois Marathon in April! The hardest part about running is putting on your shoes and stepping out the door. My running advice: invest in a good pair of shoes and use them!

Boy Scouts: I’m an Eagle Scout and a volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America in East-Central Illinois. I’ve done everything from Vice-President of Marketing to Cub Scout Den Leader and loved every minute of it! Remember Scouts, “Be Prepared!”

Accomplishments:
CMA Personality of the Year 2002
Woodbadge — Boy Scouts’ highest award an adult can earn
