Get a Athlete mug for your guy Georges.
Anyone who is onvolved in sports, but is not an egotist for it, and has other interests (other than sex.) Most athletes asre not very noticeable, and the nicest girls I know are athletes.
I do not look like an athlete, but I am a coxswain in crew.

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!)


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!

Joe and Curt were random names.
