But, when I got invited to the taping of episode 5, season 3 of The Turn On Spot with special guests Devin Thomas, wide receiver for the Washington Redskins, and Bret Lockett, defensive back for the New England Patriots, I was still kinda excited to see these guys in person and interested in hearing what two professional athletes had to say about love and relationships. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised as Thomas and Lockett seemed like two pretty cool guys. They both spoke about the importance of family and their views on inner beauty.
During the “Hotbox”, a naughty little game where guests pull items from a box and say the first thing that comes to mind, Devin took one look at this little red number and was thinking about coming home to his woman after a long day at practice. Brett said, "It reminds me of Valentine's Day and I didn't have a valentine this year." If you think that's hard to believe, later Lockett pulled out a leather journal which made him think of his favorite movie, The Notebook. Really? The Notebook. Ahhhhh
Bret later treated host Charlotte Burley (and all of us) to a mini-peep show, delivering on a promise to take off his shirt. There was no use in pretending not to look. Come on. Working out is in the man's contract. His abs were insane. But seeing his chiseled physique was just icing on the cake. Honestly Bret, you had me at The Notebook.
