Here’s what I always struggle with as I sit on my throne of blogging – if I was a pro athlete would I just fuck whoever I wanted, whenever I wanted with complete disregard for my career? Or would you pick and choose wisely based on the impact its gonna have on my public perception?
Like right now Mark Sanchez doesn’t need to be banging Eva Longoria. He doesn’t need the back pages of the post. He doesn’t need the blogosphere buzzing with jokes about “scoring.” He doesn’t need any more off the field drama than he’s already got. He’s pretty much in a make or break year as a professional quarterback. Plain and simple broads like that are a distraction.
Now Eva Longoria is an absolute smokestack and I’m sure they have some sort of Mexican connection. I’m sure they dress up like lucha libre wrestlers and fuck till the sun comes up. That sounds amazing. Like 50% of the reason you become a pro athlete is to bag chicks like her. But there’s a time and a place – and right now being in the middle of a quarterback controversy during a pivotal year that essentially determines the trajectory of your career, isn’t it easier to just bang random sluts and make sure you don’t draw any attention towards yourself? Thats how I’d think of it. Once you win and you’re a consummate pro and can handle everything on and off the field, do whatever you want. But for now I don’t think going down the Hollywood couple path, which is inevitably going to fail by the way, is the best choice for your career.
