addicted to sports

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has found his calling, and it's definitely not football

“I tell people I have the life of my dreams right now,’’ Ryan Leaf told USA TODAY Sports. “And some of the snarky comments that come back are that, no, Peyton Manning has the life of Ryan’s dreams.”

In defense of the snarky: Manning has two Super Bowl rings, hundreds of millions of dollars and a spot in the Hall of Fame all but reserved.

Leaf, by contrast, has spent almost as much time in prison (32 months) as he did in the NFL (three seasons), battled a painkiller addiction that led to the prison sentence and, according to Leaf,  left him virtually bankrupt.

So, maybe Manning is living Leaf’s dreams, after all?

“I had to think about it for a minute. But it’s not true,” Leaf said.

“When I got to San Diego, I made a speech about how my hope was to play a 15-year career and have a couple celebration parades in downtown San Diego, so essentially what I would be is a 40-year-old ass—- with two Super Bowl rings.”


• your first impression of him was that he was extremely talented, you didn’t even notice his size or his aegyo, it was his talent that made an impact on you.
• when he first met you, his mind was in a frenzy, he thought you looked nice and wanted to get to know you more bUT HE WAS NEVER WARNED BY HIS PARENTS THAT HE’D HAVE TO TALK TO GOOD LOOKING PEOPLE IN HIS LIFE???? HE WASNT PREPARED FOR ANY FLIRTING !!
• he spent all night trying to write a song that he would sing to you when it came to asking you out but nOTHING WAS COMING TO MIND BC EVERYTIME HE THOUGHT OF YOU HE GOT ALL FLUSTERED THAT HE COULDNT THINK STRAIGHT :((( ;))) and when the members came in and saw there was a sea of crumpled paper on the floor and there jihoon is in the middle of it all staring at the ceiling bc he gave up lol. he eventually got the song done at like 5 in the morning
• but when he got to you the next day, he got so thrown off guard that he forgot the lyrics for a few seconds and he kept fumbling with his guitar and his voice was all shaky and all the confidence he had before went straight out of the window
• however you were so woo'ed by the fact he spent all night writing a song for you that you said yes before he could even say anything after the song.
• “damn it, I knew you’d say no, I TOLD THEM YOUD SAY NO BUT NOOO THE HYUNGS SAID TO GIVE IT A GO AND- wait what’d you say?”
• and he was so happy that he actually yelled YES and did a little happy dougie before realising you were still there oops and immediately regained composure and tried to act cool but you saw it all.
• your first date with jihoon was in this small cafe, where you two talked about yourselves and got to know each other more. he kept asking you if you wanted anything else and kept making sure you weren’t hungry, weren’t thirsty, weren’t bored, and things like that. suddenly, someone recognised jihoon and urged him to get on this little stage the cafe had and sing. poor boy was too caught of guard and started to protest but eventually the whole cafe started chanting his name - including you. and he sighed and stood on the stage BECAUSE HE WANTED TO MAKE U HAPPY
• “um hi, my name’s lee jihoon, and I’ll be singing ‘when I grow up’. this song… is dedicated to a very special someone that’s with me today, hope you like it.”
• afterwards he got a standing ovation from the crowd and he blushed bc he completely forgot ppl were watching him and bowed then like practically ran back to you and sank down in his seat bc omg this is embarrassing
• then he insisted to walk you home bc he didn’t trust you walking home by yourself just in case something bad happened.
• jihoon doesn’t like calling you nicknames in public bc that’s too cringey to even think about !! but when it’s just the two of you he calls you all sorts of things, 'jagiya, babe, baby’ and cute stuff like that aw
• but sometimes you purposely don’t respond to him unless he calls you babe in public bc you like to see him flustered oops
• “yah, y/n come here.”
• “…”
• “y/n?”
• “…”
• “ugh, b-b-babe?”
• “huh? you were calling?”
• your first kiss with jihoon was at like 3am, you hadn’t seen him in AGES bc he always locked himself in his studio, refused to come out and stayed there for as long as he pleased. then at 3 in the freaking morning you get a call from him and his voice is like a zombie and he literally sounds ded and your like BEB ARE U OKAY and he’s all like MHM I JUST RLLY MISS U RN COME OVER zJdjismdkendkdm
• and when he saw you he got a huge as smile and just went right up to you, took your face in his hands and kissed you and you just froze bc is this the lee jihoon you knew? but it was really cute bc right after he did that he got all blushy bc hE JUST DID THAT
• public skinship? NONONONO CRINGE CRINGE CRINGE !!!!!
• like even if he hasn’t seen you in ages, he will literally wait for all the members to single file exit the room until he can hug you and kiss you all he wants. he thinks all the members don’t watch but they do in any way they can lol
• has a habit of cringing over the smallest things, like he can’t do that bc in the scenario he’s imagining in his head, it’ll look too cringey!! and he does that thing with his hands where they turn into claws and he’s just like aaksnsksmam, you know what I’m talking about ;))
• he LOVES reward kisses! jihoon wants a kiss after every performance, after every practice, after every finished song, after everyTHING BC HE DID A GOOD JOB STANDING THERE QUIETLY HE DESERVES A KISS OK
• when lee jihoon wants affection, affection is what he shall get. he’ll just casually go up to you, even in front of the members, and hug you from behind or just kiss your cheek as if this ish was normal and your all flustered bc !!
• is a sports addict like it’s not even funny, whenever he has a chance to watch or play sports he’ll get so competitive and want to win and get all pouty when the team he was rooting for or when he loses.
• “jihoon, it’s okay babe”
• probably would start shedding little tears
• he especially likes to play sport with you bc he sees you get all flustered when he tries to teach you how to kick a ball properly in soccer bc his face gets too close occasionally when he’s trying to point something out from where your standing and yOU ARENT EVEN LISTENING ANYMORE YOUR JUST A BIG MESS ON THE FLOOR UR NOT OK
• constantly asks to get a pet dog bc he loves them lots and literally stops and drops whatever he’s doing just to play with a dog that just so happened to trot passed. but no matter what he says you always like no jihoon I am not getting a dog with you bc you’ll be gone most of the time and I’d have to take care of it all the time :((
• but one time you finally gave in bc he gave you the saddest look ever and you just hAD TO.
• he then proceeded to the take your dog everywhere he went. practice room, studio, in bed with him. EVeryWHErE
• “yah, it’s seems like you love the dog more than me *pout pout*”
• “whAT NEVER~”
• jihoon can’t eat spicy food, it’s like an allergy to him oops, this one time you two were having a dinner date and he accidentally ordered something but had no idea if it was so spicy or not and he literally drank 30 glasses of water straight, 5 tubs of ice cream and 2 ice blocks - you paying, and even after that he was all whiny about it bc his tongue felt swollen and spicy and he couldn’t talk properly without a lisp for the rest of the night, poor bby
• secretly bases all of seventeen’s songs around you and whenever you or someone else asks what his inspiration for the songs are, he always says it just comes to his mind whenever bUT NOP ITS ALL FROM YOU BC WHEN HE SEES YOU HE WANTS TO SHOUT MANSAE AND HE WANTS U TO KNOW HE ADORES U EVEN WHEN HES 20 AND HE’LL ADORE U WHEN HE GROWS UP BC YOU ROCK HIS HEAD. (yalls see what I did there lol I’m pathetic)
• has an addiction to bringing his song writing notebook everywhere he goes bc you never know when inspiration hits you, it’s a good thing is ofc, but he usually gets inspiration in the worst times like he’ll say something hella nice, hella romantic, hella sweet and he’ll just stop kid sentence and be like tHATLL BE GOOD FOR A SONG LEMME WRITE THT DOWN and then the mood is killed lol
• can’t stand couple items nop nop nop
• “jihoon-ah, let’s just get socks!!”
• “goodbye.”
• will just straight up leave the shop without saying a word bc all these cringe worthy items makes him feel nauseous and dizzy
• do NOT mess with jealous jihoon, he’d straight fight anyone if he gets jealous. in fact, he would fight EVERYONE, even you. he won’t talk to you for hours bc you weren’t supposed to hang out with the hyungs, you were supposed to hang out with HIM
• bc of his jealous trait, he ain’t afraid to show public skinship to prove that yOU WERENT AVAILABLE, NOT UNLESS HIS ARMS AROUND YOUR WAIST AND KISSES MEANT YOU WERE SINGLE NOP
• will miss interpret everything and make any excuse to get jealous
• “why you staring at her like that!? huh?? c'mon let’s fight.”
• “babe it’s just a waiter”
• his phone background is a photo he took of you when you were listening to the draft of a song he was working on you looked so happy and cute he was so proud to produce a song that made you feel like that that he had to take a photo to remember that moment aw
• your phone background is of the two of you the one time you managed to convince him into couple clothing, just coz it was your birthday and you said he’d be a bad boyfriend if he didn’t do it for you. you smiled in the camera all cheesy but when the photo was taken, woozi was just staring at yOU with this lovesick look on his face !!
• dates in the middle of the night at the park, on the swings, eating ramen, talking about life and looking at the stars yes.
• once he showed you all the instruments he played and you were so fascinated, especially by the clarinet. but you thought it was embarrassing to marvel over it in front of him so when he left you took it in your hands and just looked at every key and every part of the clarinet.
• but you had no idea it could pull apart into separate pieces so when it did do that you thought you broke it and you nearly cried
• you shamefully handed him the “broken” clarinet and literally had tears in your eyes and jihoon was like girl y u crying and just puts it back together and ur like WHAT THE
• his role as seventeen’s vocal team leader really does make a huge impact on jihoon, he’s always constantly stressed and burdened over the fact that he’s in charge of writing and producing and if the song is a flop, it’s all his fault. you always have to tell him whatever he makes will be good enough because he puts all the hours of hard work and effort into it. you tell him he’s talented and absoLUTELY up for the job as vocal team leader.
• “thank you jagi… really. you have no idea how much those words mean to me…”
• your first fight with jihoon was about how he’s always over working him to the point that it’s hazardous to his health, he wouldn’t listen and he was just like WHY DOES IT MATTER TO YOU IF IM LIKE THIS and you just lost it and was like BC I CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH WAY MORE THAN I CARE ABOUT MINE
• but you just left after that to cool off bc this was scary for you and you couldn’t face him
• and he’d apologise by showing up at your doorstep all timid and he’d take a steal forward and just hug you bc although he doesn’t like to express his love for you a lot hE MISSED YOUR TOUCH AND YOUR KISS AND YOUR FACE
• “I… Am so sorry.”
• late night Skype and phone calls will jihoon bc he likes to be there even if he’s in the studio, asking you about your day and watch you fall asleep on the screen in front of him.
• is a completely different person in the morning, he wants nothing but hugs kisses and love bc it’s too early, he shouldn’t be awake, he’d still be asleep if you hadn’t woken him up so the least you could do was shower him with affection tyvm
• lee jihoon might not be the most perfect boy in the world, he might have his flaws. he might not be everyone’s cup of tea but he just so happened to be yours. you are so important to him and he wouldn’t hesitate to save you from any discomfort your experiencing. he may not show his affection often, but he really, truly cares and loves you. he shows it in his own special ways, that on,t the two of you notice and it’s absolutely magic whenever he says those three special words.
• “jagiya… akkinda” ~woozi~~

futakuchicchi  asked:

Gom+kagami+himuro+takao living with their s/o otaku addiction ( like crying over sports anime and stuff) xP?

LAUGHING BECAUSE I TOTALLY RELATE TO THIS REQUEST. Ahhh, you guys come up with the cutest imagine requests ever!!! (✿ ♥‿♥) I feel like sometimes you guys request really cute, fluffy imagines and then I JUST RUIN THEM WITH PERVERTED ONES >.< gomen.

I JUST GOT REALLY EXCITED OKAY >.<

Sidenote: I know you requested this before I made an announcement to please specify the gender because it’s just personally easier for me to write, so I completely understand since some blogs write “s/o”.

Akashi: ___ knew she was testing her luck at the moment for doing this…but at a time like this, she couldn’t care less. She knew Akashi knew about her…obsession..but that didn’t matter to him. She was to love him and only him. She was to think about him and only him. He was absolute, remember? When she told him her addiction, he wasn’t really shocked. He took her for one of those kinds of girls, but he still replied with “You will get over this. You have me now. And that’s all you need.” ___ tried, she really did; but, was too much. She was having withdrawals..and bad ones at that. It wouldn’t hurt if she watched her sports anime filled with half-naked men if Akashi wasn’t at home at the time, right? Well, that would be alright if he didn’t catch her; however, he did. “Agh, they’re just so perfect, and cute, and god they’re so —“ ___began to say before a certain smooth voice interrupted her. “—Hot. I can’t even.” Now usually it would be funny for Akashi Seijurou to say such a..fangirly..thing; however, the tone in his voice and the fact he caught her was anything but funny. “So this is what you do when I’m not home, is it?” “Akashi..I-“ “___ what have I told you? You are to love only me..You are to ‘fangirl’ over only me..” With each step Akashi took to his girlfriend, his voice softer but menacingly more dangerous. “But, Akashi, I can’t!! It’s not even like they’re real!! This is an addiction! They aren’t real boys but let me love them just as a fangirl!” ___ couldn’t help it anymore..she had to try and fight about something she loved..she couldn’t let Akashi rule her whole life…right? Wrong. With a fatal glare warning her to shut up, Akashi kept moving towards her, but that didn’t stop ___ from giving in. “Akashi!! I-I..It’s not a phase!! It’s a passion!!!” was the only plea she could think of at the moment; she was in one of the most dangerous positions at this time remember. “Passion, huh? You think this is a passion? I’ll show you what passion is..”

Aomine: “Waaahhhhhhhhh!!!! Ohmaigod, the newest episode of Free! just came out!! I don’t know if I can take thissss!!” was the first thing he heard his girlfriend say in the morning from upstairs. As he heard the pitter-patter sounds of his girlfriend running down the steps, he looks up just in enough time to catch his girlfriend before she face planted into the ground. “Oi, watch your step, you’re walking down stairs you idiot.” He shuns her, looking down at his girlfriend who had her eyes glued to the iPad in her hand. “But Aomine-channnnn, look at these biceps!! Look at his triceps! Look at his abs and leg muscles!! He has the perfect form for swimming!!” ___ went on and on, talking about her favourite sports anime show. Aomine rolled his eyes, looking down at his girlfriend he caught, bridal-style. He knew she didn’t mean anything of it, she was just a typical fangirl; however, she challenged his patience when she went on about these other guys’ muscles. Who did she think she is? Swiftly, Aomine hoisted her up onto his back and carried her up the stairs into the bedroom before tossing her on the bed. “Oi, gimmie that,” Aomine’s voice grumbled before grabbing the iPad and gently throwing it to the chair beside him. Swiftly he took off his shirt and smirked as he watched ___’s eyes go wide. “You wanted to see muscles didn’t you…Well you got em.”

Kise: “___-cchi! What are still doing in bed? I swear, I leave for basketball practice and come back two hours later to see you’re still in the bed.” Kise’s voice rings out as he walks into their shared bedroom. He looks to see a lumped figure in his bed, covered by a blanket. He hears his girlfriend’s giggle come from the lump in bed before seeing the lump kick and flail and scream in delight. “___-cchi..?” Kise’s curiosity was getting to him, he was wondering why..and what..was making her squeal like a fangirl? He swiftly climbs on top of the lump before pulling the blanket down just enough to see his girlfriend’s head pop out and what she was doing. Lo and behold, ___ was too involved in her otome game to even know what was going on. “What? What is this?” Kise asked in a curious tone. ___ surely wasn’t playing what he thought she was playing..right? “My life.” a monotone answer replied to Kise as ___ kept playing. Kise came up behind his lover and looked over to see a very perfect-looking animated boy character on his girlfriend’s screen. Just as he read a very..intimate..line that the characterized male said, ___ began squealing, making Kise disapprove. Just as she felt her boyfriend’s golden aura dim quickly, her phone was suddenly out of her hand and across the room. “___-cchi..why are you reading things like that when you have me to do things like this…”

Midorima: “___, if we are going to live together, you’re going to have to get over this!!” Midorima sighs, exhausted after having to run around the living room and chase after his girlfriend who had the controller to the tv. “No! You wouldn’t have a problem with it if it wasn’t for my favourite show being on the same time as your stupid horoscope broadcast show is on!!” “What? That’s preposterous. Stupid. Not true, nanodayo.” He looked away with a madly blushing face before pushing his glasses back up. “You know it’s trueeeee.” ___ sang before running around the couch again for good measure. Midorima sighed while an anger mark appeared on his forehead again. “It’s important to know how your day is going to be so you can expect it unlike yours which is just watching cartoons.” “THEY ARE NOT CARTOONS!” “Yes, they are.” “No, they aren’t. If they are, which they aren’t, then your horoscope stuff is just myths that are made up with stupid signs someone made when they were bored in class. You’re basically wishing on a fairytale of a shooting star.” Midorima suddenly looked like his beloved girlfriend had just told him she wanted to break up. A loud, dramatic gasp escaped from his mouth before he slapped his hand over his heart. “You take that back!” “….” ___ didn’t say anything; instead, she looked back at the television and began watching her show. “___!…___!!!”

Murasakibara: “Eh..? ___-chin, you’re watching this again?” Murasakibara’s voice rings out as he closes the door to their home. As he told his girlfriend farewell early this morning she was on the couch watching an anime filled with boys that seemed to be popstars. Atsushi thought it was kinda odd but went on with his day, going to basketball and then hanging with Himuro. So it surprised him when he came back, five hours later, to find ___ watching the same anime in a different position. “Whatever. I’ll watch it with you if you have the food.” Truth is, Atsushi knew she had an obsession with these kinds of things, but he found it really cute. And was it wrong if he used it as an excuse to cuddle with her? Lazily, he moved over to the couch and grabbed the bag of potato chips that ___ held out to him before picking her up as if she was the weight of a feather. Gracefully, he sat down in a comfy position before pulling ___ onto his lap and letting her get comfy before beginning to eat his chips. He watched from the side of his eye as his girlfriend began to open a candy bar and pop it into her mouth as her eyes stayed glued to the screen. “Ya know, ___-chin. This show isn’t so bad. But I like the other one you were watching last week better.”

Kuroko: “___.” Kuroko’s voice called out, stern. For the fifth time, she ignored him, too busy with her manga to notice him. Suddenly, the manga was out of her hands and behind Kuroko’s back. “___, you need to get outside. It’s not good for you to stay inside all the time.” “Kuroko, give me that back!! I wasn’t finished!” “I don’t care!! Can’t you see I’m worried for you?! You haven’t gone outside for the past three days!!” ___ looks down, pouting. God, she hated it when Kuroko shunned her. Deep down, she knew it was true; however, she just couldn’t go outside when there were other stories she hadn’t read yet! “Come on, ___-san. Go out on a walk with me. You can go back to reading this after we go out on a walk, okay?” “You promise? I can have it back?” “Yes, ___-san. Right after we come back from the walk.” “Okay.” Kuroko knew he had to lure her outside every now and then, he had to make sure she had pure air every now and then. As they took a walk outside, ___ looked around at the scenery. “It’s really pretty out here.” “Yeah, see? Outside is good. I have an idea.” ___ looked over at Kuroko as he took her hand and walked over to a big rock before sitting down. ___ kept on looking at the trees that surrounded them as she realised just how relaxing a forest can be. Kuroko suddenly brought out the book from his back pocket and handed it to ___. “How about we read it together, outside where it’s peaceful? This way we’re spending time together, getting fresh air, and doing what you love.” Suddenly ___ doesn’t feel like reading. She wants to talk to Kuroko and just spend careless time with him. She lunges at Kuroko, tackling him into a hug. “I love you, Tets-kun.” “I love you too, ___-san.”

Kagami: “Woahhhh—Why did his eyes suddenly flash red?!” Kagami leaned back as his face showed that he was surprised at what was happening on the tv screen. “He’s a demon.” ___, his girlfriend that was currently cuddled up under his arm, replied while her eyes stayed glued to the screen. “That’s a butler…?” Kagami was still a bit confused but he couldn’t help but find the show very interesting. At first, he had to admit, he was a bit sceptic to agree right away to watch these shows with ___. He heard all during middle school and high school that it was considered…”nerdy”…to watch anime. He didn’t want to be considered a loser if someone found out he watched ‘anime’. He didn’t really even know why his girlfriend was watching anime in the first place. Wasn’t anime just half-naked, sometimes fully nude, cartoon girls that were drawn in an impossible busy shape? Well obviously he was proved wrong when he saw all the cool anime’s his girlfriend was watching. It only took him the first three minutes to get hooked like his lover was.

Himuro: It already bugged Himuro to no end that Murasakibara would always ignore him while eating snacks whenever they hung out, but this? This was too much. His girlfriend was acting exactly like Atsushi but with reading manga. Himuro only had ___’s friend to blame on getting her caught up in this stupid romantic comic stuff. He didn’t get what was so fantastic about it. And it certainly didn’t please him at the fact his girlfriend was caught up in this fantasy boyfriend character on a page of paper more than her actual boyfriend right beside her. “Are you listening to what I just said?” Himuro asks, looking over to ___. “Hmmm..? Sorry what’d you say?” ___ drawls, turning the page before continuing reading her romance novel. That was all it took for Himuro’s string to snap. Swiftly, before ___ even had time to blink, her book had fallen to the floor and her body was pinned against the alley wall, trapped between Himuro’s strong arms. “You know, it’s a little hurtful to completely ignore your boyfriend in front of his face for a fictional boy that doesn’t even exist, don’t you think?” The way Himuro’s voice had dropped two octaves made cold chills run down his girlfriend’s spine. “We’re in an abandoned, for the most part, alley..why don’t we practice your skills on giving all your attention to your real boyfriend..hmm? Starting now.”

Takao: “___-chan, hurry it up!” Takao was trying to pull his girlfriend outside the house so they could go shopping. Unfortunately for him, his girlfriend was too busy on her phone. Takao didn’t know whether to feel relieved that he knew she wasn’t talking to another guy or hurt because she was paying more attention to her anime blog than her boyfriend. “___-chan, please? Come on, you were on that blog all night and early this morning!! When do I get time? Huh? This isn’t fair!” “Stop pouting, Takao! You’re my boyfriend. You’re more important than this anime blog.” “Well your actions oppose your words.” Takao pouts, crossing his arms over his chest like a baby. Takao then grabs the phone and starts running, not really having a full plan ready. Not expecting his girlfriend to run as fast as she did, she leaps onto him and tackles him down in their front yard. “Give it back!” ___ whines, hovering over her boyfriend, pouting trying to get him to give in. Suddenly, Takao flips her over so it’s his turn to hover over her. Swiftly, he pins her down to wear she can’t get out of the position. “Maybe I’ll do this again, I like this position, ___-chan.”
