Both suffer untold injuries and both must play with pain.
OH, GIVE ME A BREAK!
They do! Malia Jones, the world-class surfer and supermodel, has miles of scars on her body. She has this nasty one on her knee, and I said, "Where'd you get that, surfing the barrel at Molokai?" She said, "That one? Modeling in Barbados. I fell through this pedestal they had me on. Had to go to the emergency room." There were a bunch of scars on her ankles, too. I said, "Nasty wipeouts into coral? Shark bites?" She said, "Those are from walking Paris runways in high heels." To this day Christie has back pain from all those years of arching for your fantasies. Isn't that similar to the way Johnny Unitas can no longer use his right hand?
I think I'm going to be sick.
Both the athlete and the supermodel make it look easy.
Supermodeling is easy. You come out of the womb with long blonde hair and cherry-red lips, and the rest is tofu and residual checks!
Both can change a young man's life. For instance, Joe Montana's lob to Dwight Clark's fingernails is etched forever on our retinas. So too is Cheryl Tiegs's blood-stopping fishnet swimsuit picture in SI in 1978.
How many of these do you have? Because I've got to rotate my tires.
If pressed, both would do their jobs for next to nothing. Michael Jordan has said he would play for free. Supermodels for the SI shoot get a puny $350 per day, plus expenses. Often, they leave the SI shoot and head to an ad shoot that pays them $20,000 a day.
You know this is beneath you.
