Seth’s Sports Now Interview – Part 3 (The Blake Boys Series)
Sports Now: “Thank you for sitting down with us again.”
Seth Blake: “Thank you for having me.”
SN: “Congratulations. I hear you’re going to be a dad again and you’re expecting a girl this time.”
SB: “Thank you. My wife and I are beside ourselves with joy.”
SN: “You have three boys. How will a baby girl change things around the house?”
SB: “My wife says she’s declaring a state of emergency because I will be absolutely useless after she’s born.”
SN: “So your boys are OK with having a baby sister?”
SB: “They’re warming up to the idea. Their grandpa had a chat with them and it seemed to put them at ease.”
SN: “On to the hot topic of the hour. Is it true that there was an incident with teammate Lamont Brayer at your retirement party?”
SB: “I stand by the statement made by the Titans organization that we had a misunderstanding and it’s been resolved.”
SN: “Are you and Brayer on speaking terms?”
SB: “Sure we are. He told me to go to hell just the other day. But seriously, we’re both professionals and we’re focusing on getting results on the field.”
SN: “Fighting or not, the team is 6-0. What do you plan to do to keep that momentum going?”
SB: “Cut down on the off field distractions, for one thing. We have some things to work on and had a few set backs with some injuries. But we still have our eyes fixed on another Super Bowl.”
SN: “Will you remain in the world of football after your retirement in some capacity and if so, have you ever thought of owning your own team?”
SB: “I think it’s still early days. Once the season is done, I plan to spend some time with my family before assessing new career goals.”
SN: “Have you ever thought about running for public office? With your profile, your wife’s activities as a literacy advocate, and the power of your family, it would seem like a natural fit. Added to all of this, your family is the epitome of a modern American family.”
SB: “I hadn’t thought about it but thanks for the vote of confidence.”
SN: “What advice would you give young athletes about football, fame and fortune?”
SB: “I would say to know your intentions when set out on that path for a place in the NFL. Being a valuable player to your team requires discipline, respect and dedication. The partying and the money can be fun but it can also be a distraction from doing the job. Know who you are and what you want to accomplish and the rest will fall into place.”
