If you’re a college football fan, chances are you’ve heard of Nick Chubb. He’s the Georgia Bulldogs running back that last season ran for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns as a freshman. At 5-foot-10, 220 pounds, chances are he’s going to become even more of a household name this season.
But one thing Chubb does NOT do, unlike a great number of athletes on both the collegiate and professional levels, is be an avid user of social media.
Sure enough, teammate Hunter Long asked Chubb about why he never used Twitter, Instagram and the like, and the man’s response was so epic that it warranted being tweeted.
Talk about irony!
Me "why don't you ever tweet or Instagram?" Chubb "You ever seen a Lamborghini commercial. don't gotta advertise." 😂😂 @NickChubb21

Yup, you read that correctly. Chubb flat out compared himself to a Lamborghini, as if to say “I’m good enough on sight alone. Why add to it?”
Now that he’s mentioned it, think about it. Have you ever seen a Lamborghini commercial? I certainly haven’t. In fact, the only times I’ve ever seen a Lamborghini is either in the movies or when my brother and I sit down with the XBox and play some Need for Speed.
And think of what a Lamborghini is in general. It’s a fast and flashy car known for having vibrant colors, plus those fancy doors that open vertically as opposed to outward. Besides the Batmobile, can you think of any other car you’d want to drive besides a Lambo? Maybe a Porsche? A Bentley? The list isn’t very long.
Well, after learning this. I now know two things.
FIrst, Nick Chubb is the man and apart from being excited to watch him this season, I kind of want to hang out with him. Second, I need to go to the bank and see if I have enough to at least make a down payment on a Lamborghini.
Catch y’all later.
