Without knowing their names or anything else about them, this is how he started the exchange:

QB: How much does a polar bear weigh?
Ladies: Um, what?
QB: How much does a polar bear weigh?
Ladies: Um, we have no idea.
QB: Enough to break the ice. I’m [Name Redacted].

In the annals of Big Ten athlete pickup stories that we’ve heard, that at least ranks favorably in comparison to the chap who long ago tried to convince a cafeteria worker that she was the special one by telling her, “How would you like to come cut oranges up in my room sometime?”

For some mid-day fun, though, we ask a couple of harmless questions:

1) Polar bear line: Opposable thumbs up or down?

2) Best and worst pick-up lines you have ever used/heard?

Keep it clean and come out boxing!
