David Cone: Too tall to act

Everyone loves Michigan's walk-on, backup quarterback David Cone, least of all because of the fantastic rhymes he drops in the above video. But MGoBlue's "What I've Learned With David Cone" reveals a side of Mr. Cone that we've yet to uncover (emphasis mine):

I haven't learned too much about love. I try to stay away from it. When you can't live without a person, that's when you know you love them.

In football it's great to be tall. Being 6-6 is nice, but now that I'm trying to get into acting I'm too tall. All the guys on the team are starting to wonder why I'm so concerned with my height all of a sudden. I need to shrink a couple inches.

I've always been taller than everyone in my classes and I get asked how tall I am all the time. Whenever I'm asked, I tell them 6-6 and then ask them how tall they are, then act interested. That usually ends the conversation.

I have a 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser that has 230,000 miles on it. I got it when I was a senior in high school. Before that I drove a little 1973 Mercedes with no air conditioning and no heat. I like cars. I want a nice car one day.

I truly cannot wait for David Cone's acting career to take off.
