San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, is a supremely confident and multi-dimensional young quarterback doing his best to enjoy his first Super Bowl week as a spectator.
Colin is drawing the line at Sunday’s game itself and blowing town before it begins, because he WON’T be watching!
Here’s a few highlights his candid interview with GQ Magazine:
How many minutes of this year’s Super Bowl are you going to watch? Zero? Sixty? Or somewhere in between?[Laughs] It will be zero. I can’t watch. It hits too close to home.
So let’s talk a little bit about style here. Are you the most stylish 49er?I’d say I have to be up there.
Who else is up there?
I know Vernon [Davis] does a lot with style. And Dante Whitner does a lot with style. I would say those are probably the top three.
Can we put coach Harbaugh on the least fashionable 49er list?Yeah. I think I’ve seen him in my three years, maybe five times not wearing khakis and the black pullover.
There’s been a lot of teasing about his Walmart slacks. Does he get teased enough about the slacks, or not enough?When you know him, you’re like, that’s just him. But when you first meet him, it’s like “Do you have anything else in your closet?” His response is: “Well, I save at least twenty minutes a day because I don’t have to pick my clothes out. I just pull a pair out, and I go.” I guess there’s some logic to it, but would it be my choice? No.
So who is the coolest person you’ve ever Kaepernick’ed with?Michelle Obama. Hands down.
That was a quick, definitive answer. Did she know what she was doing or did you have to explain it to her?She had heard of it so I just had to show her what it was. That was pretty awesome that she did it with me. I was like, uhhh, I don’t know, this is the First Lady, should I ask her? But she was great, very easy going, which made it a lot easier to ask.
Colin also revealed that he wants to run for Mayor of San Francisco, and is pretty confident he’ll win, adding, “My first day in office, I would say better entry into the stadium. Right now it’s like one road in, one road out.”
He was also asked about being razzed by his teammates for his GQ and racy nude ESPN covers:
The ESPN cover. It came on very quickly as far as comments and people messing with it. I mean, it was all in good fun. But the GQ cover comes up when they think I’m acting fancy. “Sorrrrry, I’m not on the cover of GQ.” [Throws hands up in air; tilts head.] I get a lot of those.
