It says a lot about Chris Johnson's 2009 season that this doesn't seem that ridiculous. From Adam Schefter:â†µ
Reps for Titans RB Chris Johnson and sprinter Usain Bolt trying to set up a race between the two men to determine world's fastest human.â†µ
In 2008, if you remember, rumors were swirling that Usain Bolt might even play football. That never came to fruition, but if there's any sort of sporting deity up there, this race might. Because honest to God, Chris Johnson has made me a believer. He could outrun anyone.â†µ
Yesterday, he ran for 2,000 yards. Not for the season, but... yesterday, against the Seahawks defense, he ran for 2,000 yards. Like lightning.â†µ
But like Bolt?! (DUH DUH DUH)â†µ
Oh that? That's just Usain Bolt and the BABY CHEETAH he adopted. Unconfirmed reports have him explaining the adoption like so: "I needed a challenge. It was either football or start training a cheetah as competition."â†µ
UPDATE: Apparently, it was too good to be true. Bolt's agent said on Monday that there is "no truth" to the report the Jamaican sprinter would race against Chris Johnson.
