We're back again on the Blog Show this week, and once again it's two stories for you. The first is the great Ichiro quotes post and the second is the always popular Father's Day illegitimate kids of athletes post.
I'd also like to take the time to put up some truly classic quotes from people who commented on the illegitimate kids post.
- "Greg Oden already has one. His name is Robert Parrish, you might have heard of him."
- "The best part about Gary Payton is that his illegitimate kid is named 'Gary Payton, Jr.' so that when his wife (or whatever) had a kid, and he wanted a junior, he couldn't do it without major confusion, so he named his legitimate kid Gary Payton II. True story."
Chad Johnson - Has three illegitimate kids.
Shannon "Horseface" Sharpe - Three as well.
Vlad Guerrero - Four kids by 4 women.
Mike Bibby - apparently had two before leaving 'Zona.
Marshall Faulk - supposedly has a couple as well.
Rising star Noel Devine - High school star already has two illegitimate kids.
And the king of producing illegitimate kids was Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Although not an athlete, (he was a musician) he reportedly had 75 illegitimate kids. 57 of which have apparently been confirmed. Special thanks to Das Fanhaus guru and EDSBS honcho Orson Swindle.
Thanks again to everyone who commented, and also thanks to Jamie and Dan for putting us on the show. And a hand of course to The Dude Abides.
