Another Clinton Working Magic in D.C.
The story is old, and the bloggers have already pretty well picked through it (check out The Big Lead, Mister Irrelevant and The Mighty MJD), but if you haven't seen it yet, please read the tremendous Esquire story on Clinton Portis.
First of all, Chris Jones can write.
Second of all, there is all wonderful the stuff about the ladies and the aquarium headboard, which the other bloggers pretty much handled.
Third, though, there is this quote, which pretty much sums up any rational attitude toward sports:
I go from Miami to Denver, where people didn't understand me--didn't underÂ¬stand my character, didn't understand my openness, didn't understand my flamboyance--and they just couldn't deal with me. I don't know why those people so unhappy out there. I guess they have to stress to you, they have to talk to you until you believe that they the biggest Raiders fan or biggest Chiefs fan in the whole world. And I'm like, [Bleep], dude, I'm glad. I used to be a Saints fan. You gotta like somebody. But this ain't no [bleep] I'm willing to die for. This is my job. If you told me Redskins Park was about to get blew up, you think I'm gonna run in there? Hell, no.
Finally, there is this sensible explanation for why Portis always likes to "keep a bunch of females around." It's the same reason, incidentally, that bloggers often "keep a whole bunch of females around:"
...because women can bring the haters down. There can be one dude in the club with trouble in his mind, a Dallas fan with enough alcohol in his system to start something crazy, but he sees all them women, he forgets the beef he got with me.
Anyhow, read the links.
