Is GSP a nerd?

"I don't like to tell people that very much, but I am.  I don't really watch sports. I watch the Canadian version of the Discovery Channel. Ask me a question about the Jurassic period or the Cretaceous period and I probably could answer it."

I think some characters in the underwater world of Spongebob Squarepants are from the Cretaceous period.  I could have heard that on "Friends" though.

"Seriously, I'm into paleontology. That's the study of prehistoric life. I'm into philosophy. And psychology, too.  You know that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was found with feathers? Yes, feathers!"

That finally puts the ol' "feathers on the T-Rex" debate to bed for me.  Thanks Georges.  You'd think everyone's favorite sheepishly smiling, 'aw-shucks' welterweight champion could leverage this knowledge to his advantage with the ladies, but ....

"That's why most of my friends are not fighters. Most of my friends are nerds like me.  That's why I have a hard time finding a girlfriend. I need someone to talk science with. I'm married to my work right now. But you never know. One day I could wake up and just do something different. Life is so unpredictable."
