Say It Ain't So, Jesse

Jesse PalmerOne month ago I wrote about Toronto-born Jesse Palmer who became the first Canadian-born and trained quarterback to start a game in the NFL. Palmer didn't win that Sunday, but he did give thousands of Canadians something to cheer about.

Today, Jesse Palmer is back in the news for another reason. Palmer, it seems, is set to become the next star of ABC's reality series "The Bachelor". Say it ain't so, Jesse. Say it ain't so.

As a fourth round draft pick by the New York Giants, there's no way he needs the money. As an NFL quarterback, there's no way he needs the fame. As Jesse Palmer, there's no way he has trouble finding dates. Why estrange yourself from football fans by appearing in this wussy reality show? Why humiliate yourself on this cornball series? Why Jesse, why? I don't get it.
