After seeing Peyton Manning's performance on Saturday Night Live, I realized there are lots of athletes who would make great comedians. Which athletes do you think could have a career in comedy once their playing days are over?
I can honestly say I haven't laughed as hard as I did the night Peyton was on SNL in a while, thanks to Manning's endless rounds of self deprecation. Who could forget the "Spend time with your kids so Peyton doesn't" infomercial? Classic. While Peyton probably isn't alone in his ability to deliver a good punch line, I'm not chummy with enough athletes to tell you who would be the next Dane Cook. I think it all comes down to the athlete and their personality. Comedy is a mixture of humanity and humility, and if athletes are too proud to be the butt of a joke every now and then, odds are they won't make it far in the laugh industry.
I have been in a few relationships, dated a few girls. My problem is ... I get bored of every single one of them after a month at the most, no matter who I'm with. I can't even comprehend how couples stay together, and I don't even necessarily want to be with someone who likes sports as much as I do. What is wrong with me?
Brad, you have the male problem of no follow through. I think it's some form of dating attention deficit disorder. You like a girl, you pursue the girl for the sheer fact you like the "hunt," but the minute you have your prize, you cast her aside for more elusive prey. This is simply based on the fact you like to prove you can get whoever you want. I have watched a countless number of my guy friends embark in "catch-and-release dating," not because they are bad guys but because they can't find someone that is their equal or can hold their interest. It's not whether a girl likes sports or not that makes her a keeper. Can she form complete sentences, groom herself properly and put you in your place when necessary? That's ultimately what will make or break couples -- their ability to complete each other. Find someone who can keep things fresh -- without playing games.
