His Name is Luca

Wednesday, 01.23.2013 / 4:55 PM
As the first post on the new Ducks Off the Ice (see an explanation here), I could think of no one better to talk to than Luca Sbisa. The young Ducks defenseman has always been a talkative guy with a good sense of humor, and I figured he would eat up some questions that had nothing to do with hockey. I wasn’t wrong.

I sat down with Luca after practice this afternoon at Honda Center, as he joined the other Ducks in signing hundreds of photos, pucks and other items for Ducks charity initiatives (see photo at right). Here’s our conversation:

AB: First off, who do you like to win the Super Bowl?
LS: [Blows air out of his mouth] I don’t even know. I’ll use the Swiss excuse that I was in Europe for awhile, so I haven’t really caught up. I would say … actually, the Ravens. They’re still in it, right?

Yep.
Ravens or 49ers. That’s what’s gonna happen.

Those are the two teams that are in it.
Okay.  That’s how much I know about it. Let’s go with the 49ers.

Last movie you saw.
Zero Dark Thirty. I thought it was good. It made it way better because it’s a true story. The last 30 or 40 minutes were good, even though I knew what would happen.

What’s the best movie you saw this year?
Lawless. It’s about the moonshining era. Shia Labeouf. Tom Hardy. I liked that one.

Who’s your celebrity crush?
There’s so many… [Thinks for awhile] … Adriana Lima.

Which celebrity would you most want to meet?
Tiger Woods.

Why Tiger?
Because he’s a really good golfer. But I also want to ask him about a few things that went down [smiles].

What music are you listening to lately?
Temper Trap is one of my favorite bands.

Who? [Thinking he said “Temperature App,” which I assume is something you use on your phone to check the weather.]
Temper Trap. They have that song Sweet Disposition?

Oh yeah [Pretending I’ve heard that song before].
Yeah, I just like that alternative music, just hanging out at home.

What’s something on your iPod that you’re embarrassed to admit to?
I think I have a Britney Spears song on there.

Kyle Palmieri, signing at the table next to him, cuts in: “The new one?”
Yeah, probably that one.

Hit Me Baby (One More Time)?
Yeah, probably. I don’t know who put that on there, but … I have some Britney Spears I’m not proud of.

What's a must-watch TV show for you?
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. That’s a must-see.

I gave up on that after a few seasons. Should I get back into it?
You should. It gets better. Best show there is.

Favorite restaurant in Orange County?
Anaheim White House. Good food, good owner, they do good things in the community.

Favorite websites?
Uh, I just go on the same sites every day. TSN, NHL, anything sports.

What was the best part about living back home in Switzerland the past few months?
Just being able to see family and friends on a regular basis. I was playing two hours from my hometown, so I got to see my parents and buddies a lot. It was just good to be back home for a bit.

Where were you living exactly? 
Lugano. Really nice, 20 minutes from Lake Como, 50 minutes from Milan. Pretty cool city, actually.

Isn’t Lake Como where George Clooney has a house?
[Without hesitating] Yeah, I hung out with him a couple times. A few espressos and stuff.

Wow, really???
[Laughs ] No.
