One of my favorite running themes/ideas that Bill 'Sports Guy' Simmons has is his yearbook quotes. This is the premise: He searches for absurd quotes from athletes (and some entertainers) and passes them out to his reading masses for them to use as their high school year book quote. Pretty funny stuff, and 99% of the time are a better bet than what the average 18 year old would choose to put as his/her yearbook quote. He's updated the YBQ on his Twitter page, so if you have one of them, check it out.
All that to say, I think there may be a new leader in the clubhouse for yearbook quote of the year. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Thunder himself, LenDale White.
"I really got to be honest," White said. "It wasn't a lot of major diet changes. (It was) watching what I drink. I was a big Patron consumer. ... That's what it was. I was drinking a lot, drank a lot of alcohol. I cut that out of my diet all the way. I don't drink at all. I cut the drinking, I stopped drinking for six months... It started falling off."
I've already written about the talent that took the field in Pasadena on January 4, 2006, but consider the paths of the four biggest stars in the game: One quarterback had photos of him partying with college girls in a hot tub leaked to the internet and has since taken up MMA training in the offseason to improve his on-field performance, the other quarterback had photos of him partying shirtless with other dudes get leaked as well and has been on suicide watch for one night. The Heisman-winning running back has made more news for being injured and dating (until recently) OJ Simpson's lawyer's daughter. And now, to complete the circle, the other star running back is making news for losing 30 pounds of tequila!
