Default Real Athletes

With all the bickering about whether NASCAR (baseball, golf, etc.) is a sport, what do ya think about these two guys. Cole Konrad from Minnesota and Tommy Rowlands from Ohio State. Both were two time NCAA champion heavyweight wrestlers and both were invited to try out for the NY Jets. Konrad hasn't played fooball since his freshman year in high school and Rowlands since the eighth grade.

"Both Rowlands and Konrad were surprised when they received calls from Brendan Prophett, the Jets' assistant director for pro scouting.

"I thought it was a prank call," Rowlands said, laughing. "When I returned his call, it was a voice mail and it said he was from the New York Jets, so I figured if someone was pranking me, they're going to great lengths to make the joke work. At that time, I knew it was real."

It's a pretty cool read.

Just goes to show. Wrestlers have em. Other athletes play with em.
