Holy #ThrowbackThursday! This was taken in September 2000, a few hours before the first game of my senior year at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. We were in Tennessee for the NCAA Kick-Off Classic to start the season. #tbt
A few comments on the photo of uniformed Sims in the half-shirt, which already has nearly 5,000 likes and more than 125 shares:
"Are YOU trying to break the Internet?"
"And about 400,000 of your gay followers just fainted dead away…"
"Please do a magazine cover like that Kardashian monster. Make me forget I ever saw her backside."
We think he scored.
UPDATE: Sims' share caused a bit of a kerfuffle, which he responded to in a statement to HuffPost:
"It's a funny, tummy picture of me in socks and sandals. I'm also incredibly proud of my college football career and it's definitely informed a lot of who I am. I'm not sorry if a guy in a football uniform 15 years ago bothers anyone or makes them question the substance of the work I do. Frankly, when a lousy, do-nothing Congress is polling at 10 percent but has a 90 percent re-election rate, I'd suggest we're measuring our elected by the wrong standards already. In truth, women have had their credibility "questioned" by guys who only knew how to sexualize them for thousands of years. It's like saying "I find you attractive so you can't have my respect too." Am I surprised to see it happening to a guy in 2014. Not so much."
