An athlete is someone who is very physically active and participates in one or many more kinds of sports. Generally enthusiastic and kind people who respect all other folk's interests.

Not to be confused with the jock, which is someone who is generally very good at sports as well, but is a complete asshole who treats people who aren't quite as athletic like complete shit through name-calling and wedgies.
Ex. 1(Athlete) Tim-"What's up, man? I'm Tim. I like to play football. What about you?"

Bobby-"I like to play the guitar."

Tim-"Ah that's cool, bro! I wish I could play the guitar!"

Bobby-"Yeah, and I wish I could play football!"

Ex. 2 (jock) Randy-"Hey dude do you play any sports?"

Ted- "Nope. I like to draw and dance."

Randy-"Hahaha faggot, you'll never get any girls!!!"

A true athlete is a person who plays many sports and tries hard. Athletes are nice to everybody, and hang out with whoever they want. Athletes are good sports. They usually have a plan in life and are qute smart. (Not quite nerds, whose IQ is greater than their wight. Very smart!)

PLEASE SEE!!!!
Athletes are NOT to be confused with jocks! Jocks are Dumb Ass people who surprisingly are popular. (Does anyone know why?) A jock's IQ is 1/10th their weight. They play one sport, usually football or wrestling. Jocks get held back many times. They get cars they don't deserve, and end up living in their parent's basement, having a part time job flipping burgers at McDonalds. (IF LUCKY!)
Guy 1: Man, Curt is a true athlete, he's also really nice compared to Joe and his team. He's training hard!
Guy 2: Joe is a douchebag. He's probably still at that AIDS-fufilled party, wasted with his team and cheerleaders.
Guy 1: Does Joe even play anything besides football?
Guy 2: No, but Curt is on our Basketball team, LAX team, Baseball Team, and swim team. He plays a bunch of other sports, and not to mention his grades!

NOTE TO THE EDITOR:
Joe and Curt were random names.
