We really wouldn't want to hang out with most football players. As a fan, we're necessarily put in the tension-filled position of being passionate about a sport whose participants would, on the whole, rather chew their own leg off than hang out with our ilk. ("Hey, wanna come over and watch the DVD of Big Love! It's the one where Marge finally gets that job she's been angling for! I'm sooooo happy for her!")
Yet, we think we've met the first player we actually would love to hang with on a weekly basis: Michigan's own Marques "Grand Marques" Slocum. His quiz on his facebook entry is reprinted below, and we don't mean this in a snickering, elitist, or ironic way at all: Marques sounds fucking awesome. In fact, we're calling our mom right now to tell her she's the realest bitch alive. She'll appreciate it, since she did say "motherfucker" live on the EDSBS radio show.
Sprint/Nextel, bitches. Enjoy.
