Colin Kaepernick Talks Football with GQ Magazine

colink-gq

Pro athlete and eligible bachelor Colin Kaepernick shows off his chiseled physique on the cover of GQ magazine.

In the September issue, Colin Kaepernick chats about his love for football, how he’s coped with prejudice people and much more.

Check out some highlights from his GQ feature when you read on.

On reliving bad plays:
“All my life, I’ve had these flashbacks, these dreams, nightmares, day-mares, like visions, where I relive certain plays. Only the bad plays. I see them over and over, as if somebody’s rewinding a tape and forcing me to watch. Some of these are recent. But some of them go back to high school. Every time I relive these mistakes of mine, I’m also forced to ask, What could I have done different? What decisions could I have made? This stuff haunts me, but I like it, because it makes the game hard. And the more I study, the more comfortable I feel with what a defense is going to do.”

On loving football over other sports:
“You know what I love most about this game? You know what I miss the most when I’m away from it? Being around my teammates. That’s it! Growing up, when I dreamed about playing in the NFL, it was never about being famous, never about the roar of the crowd. It was about the other players, because there is no other sport where you rely on your teammates so much. The fact that you can go out there and trust ten other people without even looking at them, that’s amazing. That you can build that type of trust and have that type of confidence where you can throw a ball without seeing where a receiver’s at, and just trust he’s gonna be there and make a play… Do you know what that feels like, to know those guys have my back and not worry about that? I couldn’t feel any of that as a pitcher. On the mound it was just me and the batter. And the questions were all about me: What can I do to throw him off? What can I do to beat him? But there was not that trust, that feeling of others relying on you. That feeling of ‘It’s just you’—I didn’t like that.”

On being underestimated:
“I think the biggest part of my game that’s underestimated is the mental part of it. Probably because it’s invisible. You can’t see the hours I put in. It is funny to me that because I can run, because I’m athletic, people tend to see that as my only asset. And that’s fine–I hope they continue to see it that way [and underestimate me]. Look, I won’t say that view is ‘racist.’ I will say that it’s stereotypical. I’ve just heard it so many times before.”

Rapper ‘The Game’ Dyes Hair Kool-Aid Red

 

‘The Game’ has taken-up where Chris Brown left off. The rapper posted a picture on his Twitter page of his new hair-do, a mohawk-like style dyed bright red. The Game wasn’t showing his face (I wonder why) in the picture but judging by the tattoo placement, his profile and the fact that it came from his Twitter account, it is him.
