As for what’s next? Honestly, Bolt himself probably doesn’t even know yet. Could he break the 9.50 barrier? It’s unlikely, considering the fact that he’s in peak sprinting shape at 22 and the wheels won’t last much longer. It could happen, though; he’s got a few years to keep hammering at it.
What about football? He’s a scout’s wet dream, considering his 6?5?, 190 frame (one that could easily go to 220 and still maintain elite speed by NFL standards). But there’s more to being a wideout than just running in a straight line, and we’re pretty sure he’d prefer a career where he doesn’t have to deal with strong safeties waiting to decapitate him every time he goes over the middle.
But damn, he’d be a revelation on kick returns and fly routes, absolutely scorching anybody foolish enough to try to cover him one-on-one. And you know everyone would want to see what his character could do in Madden. What would his speed rating be? 112? [SbS]
I’m going to need a rapper to craft a few clever lines on this or maybe one of those young Atl whippersnappers can make up a dance called “do the Bolt.”
