When Seth isn’t busy blocking and tackling, metaphorically of course, he is compensating for a childhood spent eating spaghetti and meatballs by cooking slightly more exotic food every weekend and can be seen pushing his one of his two young children in the running stroller while reminiscing about the single marathon he completed. He also has an affinity for rap music and travel to faraway places.
