On a radio show I was on the other day, someone was making fun of
Joakim Noah’s looks, which bugs me for a lot of reasons. I went all
sensitive on the dude and told him there is more to a person than the
way he looks. I said of all the Gators I have covered, Joakim would top
my list of dinner guests.
That got me to thinking about who would be in my top 10 if I was having a dinner party for Gators only.
1. Joakim Noah ” Most interesting athlete I’ve ever covered.
2. James Bates ” Comic relief.
3. Carlos Alvarez ” Smart, witty, great guy.
4. Cris Collinsworth ” Has the best stories.
5. Steve Spurrier ” No doubt.
6. Urban Meyer “Need some scoop on ’06.
7. Dwayne Schintzius ” He has some explaining to do.
8. Bob Hewko ” No telling who he’d bring.
9. Dara Torres ” For obvious reasons.
10. Chris DiMarco ” Has to be some golf talk.
