A.J. the juggler

Pretty entertaining media session tonight with A.J. Green. The Georgia star receiver was wearing a Playboy All-American T-shirt, and joked that he also got a magazine with it.

Just for the articles, a reporter said to Green.

“Love the articles,” Green replied, to media laughter.

Green also said, with a smile, that he’d have to hide the shirt and Playboy sweatshirt from his mother, who was coming up Saturday morning.

There also came the revelation that Green was once a competitive juggler. No, really. He was on his elementary school juggling team, first picking up the skill as a second-grader.

“That helped with my hand and eye coordination a lot,” he said.

He can still juggle up to four things at a time.

“I can juggle everything: Pins, bowling pins, whatever,” Green said.

The craziest thing he can juggle? Metal rods, he said.

(There's a double entendre here to be done with the juggling and the Playboy thing. I'll let you figure it out.)

And, by the way, Green can also ride a unicycle.

Really. Who knew?

For more on all this, read Paul Newberry’s future story in the Associated Press.

Green was also briefly asked about his NFL future – “I’m taking it day-by-day” and the NCAA inquiry – which he still can’t comment on. He was hoping he could next week.

On the topic of Green and the NFL, quarterback Aaron Murray had a good quip.

“You never know, there might be a lockout,” Murray said, smiling. “I won’t complain too much if he wants to stay two more years.”

My guess is Anon was in fact beat out by said AJ Green in the elementary juggling team tryouts. He never quite got over it and to this day whenever he sees AJ Green's name he drops something.
