Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is featured in the style section of the September issue of GQ magazine. Here are a few things from the interview that stood out:
- His teammates mock him for his affordable suits. His response? "When you're a rookie and you're a third-round pick, you've got to be smart with your money. I'd rather wear a hundred-dollar suit than go bankrupt." [To which I say, if the suit looks good, look good on him, and doesn't look cheap, leave the man alone.]
- Russell used to bite people until about sixth grade. [Oh, you were that kid.]
- He's spent no time thinking about the loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs. [Like, none? I guess I can understand that. He can't change what happened, so thinking about it would probably drive him crazy. Sometimes you just have to let it go.]
I'm pretty excited to see what Russell Wilson will do this season and I hope to catch him and the Seahawks when they come to Charlotte to play the Carolina Panthers.
