I was recently reading collegiate sports player profiles from a university that I attended.
Each profile had basic information, and then included answers from other questions like "Who is your favorite athlete?"
As expected, baseball players like Albert Pujlos and Derek Jeter.
Football players love Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers, or Ray Lewis.
Basketballers named Lebron James.
Male soccer players like Landon Donovan, while female kickers cheer Abby Wambach.
Except for one female soccer player.
Her favorite athlete?
Former heavyweight boxing champ, convicted felon, and repeat violent offender?
The guy who was disqualified from a match after he chomped an opponent's ear?
Wow, now if I were a reporter in that market, I would certainly want more information as to why she would answer Mike Tyson.
Not sure I have ever been more curious about an answer from a ubiquitous question on a college sports webpage before.
Note: Tyson has been in the news lately with his one-man performance about his life entitled "The Undisputed Truth--Life on Stage." The show appeared in Las Vegas this week.
Have a good weekend everyone.
