If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?

  1. Drake because he one of my favorite artists and I’ve always listened to his music. I just think it would be interesting to have a conversation about life and personal experiences.
  2. Shannon Sharpe because he’s naturally comedic but he seems like someone to have a great conversation with and who’d bestow a lot of wisdom.
  3. My father because I can talk to him about everything football related and I know any talk we’d have would be authentic.

There’s more but that’s just who I can think of at the top of my head who I’d want to have dinner with right now at this point in time.
