This topic started toady when Matt Barkley went on SportsCenter today for a pre-draft interview and they mentioned he was getting married soon. And it got me thinking. What is in the water that is making all these young, soon-to-be-drafted-quarterbacks, future millionaires, getting hitched right when they start their professional careers. I got nothing about getting married. But getting hitched when in your low-mid 20’s? I guess it’s good to find someone before your rich and famous, but you gotta look at the flip side of that… Mark Sanchez. The poster boy for the single young QB. You could argue either way, but just look at the list of QB’s in the recent years that have been either engaged or married right out of college.

Might wanna lock that thing up guy, before Darnell Dockett does.
