Having attended an "actual" Sports University, (If you haven't seen pictures of Rex Grossman's party face circa 2000, you aren't a real Gator) I am well versed in the benefits of being a star college athlete.
There are the many tutors who always seem to know exactly what is the "important information" needed for exams, there are the choice dorms with names like "lakeside" built specifically for stars, and then there's the white/black/red/drunk women.
You haven't lived until you've seen five Tri-Delts throwing themselves on Udonis Haslem. Matt Walsh (Where are you now?) dated a freaking playmate. SEC might as well be SEX.
Or so I thought.
On Monday's Howard Stern Show, in an interview conducted at the ESPY's Shaun Alexander revealed that he was a virgin until his marriage at the age of 24.According to the show's rundown for Monday,
In the final clip, the NFL MVP, Shaun Alexander, told Gary he wouldn’t have a problem with a gay athlete in the locker room with him, even though he didn’t think “it was right.” Shaun went on to say he was a virgin until he got married at the age of 24.
Let's digest that for a second. So we're talking about a guy who had to be the biggest star in any room he stepped into from age 17 to the present day, and he never cashed that check?
He's like A.C. Green, but without the piety.
Alexander did go to Alabama, so I guess that can explain some of his motives, but jees it couldn't have been an easy milestone. This achievement, if we can call it that, has really put me on the defensive now. What else is out there? Has Randy Moss never gone #1 standing up? Could Tom Brady have never tasted Dr. Pepper before? Everything is now operative people.
The point is, it's a responsibility of all professional athletes to lead better lives than the rest of us. If Shaun isn't going to bang groupies on the road then he better just take his MVP Trophy and go home.
This just in,
