(LATimes) — Playing in the NFL requires a certain amount of bravado and Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is clearly not lacking in that department. Johnson, after all, told reporters that he could beat Usain Bolt in a short race. “I feel like if I would have kept training for track I’d have a chance, but I play football and he runs track, so it’s totally different,” Johnson said. “I think I could still probably beat him in the 40. If I actually trained for the distance he trained for, I think I’d have a chance.” Bolt is considered the fastest man alive after winning the 100-meter race in an Olympic-record time of 9.63 seconds.
I don’t know why. I really don’t. I just get a kick out of people saying they can beat the people who set world records and are literally the fastest people in the history of Earth. I mean who the hell does that? Takes some serious balls to shoot off at the mouth and say stuff like you’re faster than the fastest man in the world or even something like you’re a better swimmer than the best swimmer in the world. Usain Bolt is the fastest person to every tie his shoes. Only a person with a mouthful of gold teeth and an IQ that would get you a stay of execution anywhere but Texas would claim he’s faster.
Who ya got? 1 for the fastest man alive 10 for the guy who barely rushed for 1000 yards and had 4 TDs last year
