Ballerz and Bustaz
It's Wednesday. Today's theme is sports related.
Some people hold athletes in high regard. Some people ADORE athletes. Some people think that athletes are pompous and arrogant. Some people think that athletes are vastly overpaid.
As a former athlete, I can say that all of the statements above can be true and false. Athletes are just regular people who excel in a particular field. Nothing more...nothing less. I don't subscribe to the thought that athletes are overpaid. I mean, if somebody wants to pay you 2 million dollars just to stand around and do nothing, then that's cool. I guess you're not really overpaid if somebody is willing to pay you, right? And I know that teachers, police and firefighters should get more money. But honestly, you're not gonna pay $100 to sit in a classroom and watch Mrs. Jones show her fifth grade class how to do "long division." But you'd pay $100 to go to see LeBron James play a basketball game for 3 hrs. LOL. It is what it is. Furthermore, athletes are cool to hang out with.
Today, we're gonna flip the script a lil bit. I want you to list the top 3 athletes that you would like to go out on a date with. Then, I want you to list the top 3 athletes who you WOULDN'T go out on a date with. And this can be based on your perceptions about the athlete. Here's mine..
WOULD LIKE TO DATE...
1. Laila Ali (boxer) she's soooo fine
2. Marion Jones (track) very cute. nice body. We'd have to date once she got outta jail. lol
3 Lisa Leslie (wnba) a b-ball player who models on the side
Would NOT Date
1. Venus Williams (tennis) looks manly. looks JUST like her dad...and that ain't cool
2. Serena Williams (tennis) rumors that she has issues with "personal hygiene". if you know what I mean. that's definitely not ladylike
3. Michelle Wie (golf) she has a HUGE head.
The floor is yourzzzz.
