"Wow you quarterbacks get all the good looking women, what a beautiful woman, whoa! If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops."

This is some pretty standard objectification. So common–especially in the sports world–it’s almost not worth commenting on. Except that we’ve had occasion to illustrate posts with a photo of a girl holding a sign saying “I am more important than football” not once but twice this week...This is why we are not surprised when football players–or other high-profile male athletes–are accused of rape. And I think it’s also the reason that the response from the broader sports community–from coaches, administrators, fans–is so often to rush to defense of their players.

“I laughed hysterically. I was flattered … and slightly embarrassed … but I thought it was the funniest thing ever. I never expected that.”Shockingly, attractive women seem attracted to successful quarterbacks, both at the collegiate and professional level. I guess this goes along with the theme of good looking women being attracted to to powerful and wealthy men, such as the various dictators and Silvio Berlusconi. A number of websites have chronicled many case of this, but I borrowed heavily from this one, while doing my own "research".
