Friday Fun: Which professional athlete would you want narrating your life?

I want someone funny, entertaining, and with an amazing voice.

It’s Friday and while that means the weekend is just around the corner, it also means that most everyone’s afternoon is spent staring at the clock just waiting for work to get out. So, I decided to help distract you from the monotonous tick tick of the clock and from that mound of work on your desk. You’re welcome!

Everyone should know which celebrity they’d want narrating their life—a toss up between Michael Fassbender and James Earl Jones for those who’re interested—but the question is a bit harder when it comes to athletes.

For me, I tend to base my pick around voice. I want whomever is narrating my life to have a really distinct and awesome voice. There’s a big difference when the voice of Mufasa and Darth Vader says “And Peter ate way too much cake that night” then when that’s said by Paul Reubens. It’s not the same.

I also want someone who’s going to be able to bring a sense of fun and festivities to my life. Someone who can make sitting around on the couch all day sound like the best freaking time ever.

There’s only one athlete who checks off both of those very selective criterias. His name? David Ortiz.

Just imagine cooking yourself a meal or talking with a pretty lady or man with this man narrating it. Who wouldn’t enjoy that??

What about you? Which athlete would you want to narrate your life? Leave your pick in the comments or—if you want to fully explain your rationale—write a FanPost and we’ll make sure to share it!

Hopefully the final moments of the week won’t seem as bad with this to distract you.

Happy weekends!
