One thing I’ve always said about athletes, they have “me too” syndrome. Example, you have the new iPad, benz, chain from Jason of Beverly Hills??? ME TOOOOOO.But “me too” doesn’t only extend to gadgets, jewelry and cars, WOMEN are also an area that athletes are equally as competitive.
So when I heard Jets LB Bart Scott said that when he played for the Baltimore Ravens, they used to fight with Washington Redskin players over strippers, I wasn’t the least bit surprised:
Do you sense a rivalry between the Jets and Giants?
“Not at all. Like I said when I was in Baltimore I could remember with the Redskins you had guys fighting over strippers and all kind of stuff. I don’t sense that here. I think it is a mutual respect. I think the town is big enough for both of us. I think we were just trying to make a statement that hey we wanted a little bit bigger piece of the spotlight because when I got here my sense was pretty much all Giants type of town. We played in Giants Stadium. We just want to get our piece of the pie. We respect them, but we would definitely love – we look forward to that game. I believe it is the 24th of December for bragging rights and hoping that’s the game that could help us win this division.”
Bart you gotta help me out. You guys fought for strippers? What does that mean?
“When you are in a small place like Baltimore and the temperature is relatively cold – hey you compete over the same chicks. That’s a football players favorite spot. Especially young football players. It was always a rivalry. Guys fight about hey that is my girlfriend and that’s my girlfriend, but here? Five million people, maybe more. There is plenty for everybody.”
Don’t believe that excuse about it being cold and a small city. I’d be willing to bet his whole salary that there are members of the Jets and Giants who have beef right now over some cutie with a big booty whose boosting her odds of success.
Jocks love a referral, remember that. Look at all the athletes lined up to hook up with Draya from Basketball Wives LA
