Name: Earl Leatherland

What do you do for a living? 

I am currently a Children’s Pastor with the Chapel at Elmwood, a new church plant holding gatherings at the Regal Cinema on Elmwood Avenue in Kenmore.

What 3 adjectives would you use to best describe yourself? 

Reflective (not like aluminum), passionate, adventurous

What is your favorite movie? 

It is not just one movie, it’s a style of movie. Movies that demonstrate the realism of life and events Movies like “Miracle”, “Saving Private Ryan”, “The Untouchables”, “Shawshank Redemption”, and “Monsters, INC.”  I still haven’t seen my cousin since she hid from me in the closet 24 years ago.

What is your favorite song? 

“Love Train” – The O’Jays

Who is your favorite Singer/Band? 

Michael McDonald / Journey

Who is your favorite current Buffalo Sabres player? 

Ryan Miller (followed his work at Michigan State)

Who is your all time favorite Buffalo Sabres player? 

Mike Ramsey / Pat Lafontaine (Pat Lafontaine came to my small home town of Massena, N.Y. while touring with the 1984 Olympic Team and played in an exhibition game at, get this, the “Massena Arena”.  Not too much rhymes so well with ‘arena’.)

What was your most embarrassing moment?

(1) I was standing next to a very good friend that was seated beside me.  I noticed something in his hair that looked like a suture and a bandage.  I immediately thought he had some type of injury, so I questioned him.  After describing the “abnormality” I was informed that toupees thin from combing.  (2)  I did the same thing to another friend a few years later.  (3) Saying “goalie-ing” during the audition.

If you were a Superhero, what would your superpower be? 

I would be able to gain, retain, and utilize, at any moment, the “lessons learned” from all the dumb things I have done and said.  Then, I would be able to wipe everyone else’s mind clean of the stupidity of my actions.  (For example: “It’s goaltending, you idiot.  Goaltending!  Now everyone else just sit back and relax…while I grab this hammer…you are going to feel a little pressure….)
