Seriously, this is one of my favourite quotes ever.
Jesse Hogan, he's the 20-year-old Melbourne Power Forward who was just unanimously voted in as the 'Rising Star' in the AFL. I know very little about AFL, but apparently this guy is a pretty big deal.
Here's what he said after admitting that he wasn't the most "academic kid in high school".
Mum wasn’t too proud of me. I had a lot of half days. Whenever the new COD or video game came I’d have a few sick days. She couldn’t get my out of bed and I’d say ‘Mum you’re having a laugh, just call school now and say I’ll be there Wednesday’.
That's too good. Too good.
"Mum you're having a laugh, just call school now and I'll be there Wednesday."
