Clinton Portis on love and lust

During a late afternoon appearance with Dan LeBatard, Portis broke out a Dolla Bill moment for the first time in years, talked about his stripper pole, and answered a question from LeBatard’s dad about the first time he fell in love.

“The first time I fell in love, I don’t think it was love, you know,” Portis said. “I don’t even know how to answer that. I don’t know if it was love. I think it was lust. I was lusting, because as soon as I got to college, it was quickly over. I think I really fell in love for the first time when I got to college to a great woman, and it was a wonderful feeling. I think you really realize when you’re in love how good it feels.”

LeBatard then wisely realized that he should have asked about the first time Portis experienced lust.

“If he would have asked me about the excitement, I would have told him, the first time I had that excitement going on, I knew then, I was addicted,” Portis said. “Hey, the first time I was excited about a woman, I knew right then, I had a serious addiction. It was gonna be hard to change that from that point on.”

These are words Portis has explained before. Here’s how he described Mike Shanahan’s hiring.

“My initial reaction, if we go back to the relationship, was don’t fall in love again,” he said. “Stay lustful. Enjoy the moment for however long it lasts.”
