Debate: Geek-as-Jock vs. Jock-as-Geek

So this highlighted the "geek-as-jock" thing, but aren't we already at "jock-as-geek" -- look at Gilbert Arenas, Rod Benson, Greg Oden, Chris Bosh, any pro athlete who talks about playing fantasy football, any athlete who blogs or acknowledges Facebook, etc.

Posting in a blog, or playing Fantasy Football doesn't many somebody a geek... Not even close really.

The only "Jock" that I can think of that is truly a geek would be Curt Schilling.

Other than that, you have Jocks that do some extremely mild geeky things. Which really is a huge difference...
