Brandon Banks, the Redskins receiver/kick returner, gave a revealing interview to Christie Ohh! He didn’t talk about his stabbing, or getting a new QB, or all the new receivers he has to compete with in Washington. He spoke candidly about dating. I’m having trouble discerning whether or not he’s serious:
ChristieOhh: What type of woman grabs your attention and holds it?
Brandon: I’m more attracted to light skinned women with long hair. I like thickiness, more short because I’m not tall; I don’t like tall women like that.
What if she were tall, light-skinned, had long hair and thickness? Candice Parker?
ChristieOhh: What’s an ideal date like with Brandon?
Brandon: I’m a big movies person. I like to go out to eat; somewhere to get to know the other person. I love going to see movies and doing something fun.
What better place to get to know someone than not talking to them for two hours at the movies?
ChristieOhh: What goes uncompromised with you ?
Brandon: I don’t like a woman that smokes cigarettes doesn’ t matter how fine she is to me. She has to keep her nails and toes done, it shows me she cares about her appearance.
When I think about the appearance of a woman, the first thing that comes to mind are nails and toes.
ChristieOhh: Who are your celebrity crushes?
Brandon: Lauren London and Skylar Diggins; she plays for Univ. of Notre Dame; she’s not a celebrity but she is up and coming.
Ms. London has a kid with Lil’ Wayne; Diggins can be seen in the women’s Final Four this weekend, playing for Notre Dame.
While not quite as smooth as Jordan Crawford of the Wizards – what’s the deal with DC athletes talking dating? – we all appreciate the candor, Brandon.
