One of the more interesting blog posts I’ve seen this week comes from Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics. He relates the recent news of Kidd vs. Kidd and Bart Starr’s alleged mistress to an NFL seminar the league runs for its rookies, warning them of the downside to fame and fortune, including scheming women.

I cannot do the example Dubner uses justice with my own words. You really just have to read it. Here’s a highlight, which is either amusing, frightening or all of the above:


“Marcellus Wiley, a San Diego Chargers veteran, advocates ‘keeping a stable’ of women to avoid undue complications.

Hello? Paging Chuck Finley.

    you know, that’s funny. A very learned person recently told me that women are like horses — if you chase ‘em too hard, they run off.

    I don’t know where saddles, lumps of sugar and riding crops enter into all of this, but perhaps I should’ve listened to more of this fascinating advice.

    That’s an Ivy League education for you. Marcellus is always one thought ahead of the average NFL player.
