Orton's Surprisingly Healthy Attitude


We have a hard time making it through Sports Illustrated anymore, so we missed this quote from your friend and ours Kyle Orton, whose pictures of drunken carousing in Iowa City earlier this year were first seen on Deadspin.

"It doesn't bother me. I pick and choose times to have fun. I don't do it when it will affect my job. That's my personality, I go out and have fun. If someone puts it on the Internet, so be it. It doesn't affect me or bother my family."

We find that a completely healthy and strangely mature attitude. In all seriousness. Also in that article, Orton talks about going back to Iowa when he retires and going into politics, following in his father's footsteps. We would totally vote for him.
