One More Thing: If you could have dinner with one professional athlete, who would it be?

I love Chase Utley – he was one of my all-time favorite Phillies. He was a great player, and he seems like an all-around great guy. We could have a catch after dinner.
Kathleen Monahan, Audubon

 

Carli Lloyd. She’s a South Jersey girl who seems so down-to-earth and relatable – and I read in her book that she loves pizza, so we have lots in common.
Chrissy Gallagher, Mount Laurel

 

Shaquille O’Neal. That dude rules!
Dave Bailey, Mays Landing

 

I would have Mike Trout over for dinner. My main reason is to convince him to sign with the Phillies when his current contract expires!
Camden County Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli Jr.

 

Brian Dawkins. He’s my favorite football player, we are one week apart in age and he’s just an inspirational dude. It would be an inspired dinner.
John Monahan, Somers Point

 

Jordan Spieth, because I love how he approaches his craft and would love to pick his brain about the pressures in an individual sport. And my husband Brian would also be able to talk some golf!
Olympic Gold Medalist Carli Lloyd

 

Steph Curry, because I watched his wife Ayesha Curry’s cooking show – it’d probably be a good meal.
Maura Diventura, Berlin

 

Connor Barwin. When he was an Eagle he was my favorite defenseman, but he was also very involved with the city and a variety of charities, and he still comes back to Philly to host events and stay involved.
Andy Shultz, Riverton

 

Bobby Clarke. He had a lot of dedication to the Flyers and never gave up on his team. He seems like a pretty badass dude who rocked barely any teeth for most of his life.
Autumn Stuart, Voorhees

 

Simone Biles. Not only is she an amazing gymnast, she’s also hilarious on social media. I’d ask her to take a selfie with me over dinner.
Melissa Harris, Medford

 

Venus Williams. I’m in awe of her strength and talent, plus we could talk about being new parents.
Allison Mason, Cherry Hill

 

Mia Hamm. She’s been my idol since god knows when. She’s the reason for my love of soccer and being a strong female athlete.
Emily Frankel, Ventnor
Matt Anderson from the U.S. Men’s National Volleyball Team. Volleyball is my favorite sport, and he’s one of the strongest attackers I’ve ever seen. I’d like to ask him what it takes to become better at the game and if he has any pointers to those who aren’t exactly as tall as him.
Juan Paolo Chamorro, Egg Harbor Township

 

That’s a tough question. I can’t decide between Brian Westbrook, David Akers or Carson Wentz – so I’m just going to say all three!
Jennifer Miller, Delran

 

Probably Derek Jeter. Not only because my wife has had a crush on him for years, but he also played the sport with a passion and a professionalism that children and adults could both admire. His career was not only one of many championships, but also free of controversy, while under an intense media spotlight. Wow!
