For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
This is a story you don't hear often. Prince Amukamara is a cornerback for the New York Giants and he is a sober virgin. He sat down with Muscle & Fitness Magazine and talked about his virginity, sobriety and his fiancé. Check out some excerpts from his interview:
Well, Tim Tebow famously said that he was a virgin. Are you? Are you open to talking about that?
Yeah, I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.
Knowing that about you—that you don’t drink and you’ve never had sex and here you are in the NFL—from the outside looking in, the cold tub incident where Jason Pierre-Paul picked you up and threw you in, it would seem like you were being ostracized. That you didn’t fit in with the rest of the guys. Is that line of thinking on the right track?
The whole cold tub thing wasn’t just JPP, it was like eight guys. And it definitely was not anything personal. That wasn’t the first time I was in the cold tub, it was just the first time anyone saw it. And what the video doesn’t show is what happened 15-20 seconds after that, which is all of us messing around. JPP is great. I just saw him this morning and he was congratulating me on my engagement because I just engaged this past Friday. So there’s no hard feelings. It wasn’t a personal situation.
Another question people would ask from the outside is if you don’t drink and don’t have sex, how do you blow off some steam?
I still enjoy going out. I still enjoy dancing, and I get high off of everyone else’s high. If everyone is having a good time, that makes me have more fun, even though I don’t need everyone to be happy for me to be happy, if that makes sense.
You say you recently got engaged. What’s the lucky lady’s name, and have you guys set a date for the wedding?
Her name is Pilar Davis. We want to do it the week after the Super Bowl.
How did you guys meet?
We met in New York. We were out dancing. I was just drawn to her. It was right after the Green Bay Packer [playoff] game [in 2012] from my rookie year and I said, “I’m going out because this was a huge win.” I actually went out with Ahmad Bradshaw. We went to this spot in the Meatpacking District called SL. She was standing by the counter. I said, “Are you waiting for someone?” And she said, “Yeah.”
So I didn’t know what else to say after that so I started walking away. But my teammates, Corey Webster and Aaron Ross, made me go back. They were like, “Go say something to her!” And they were cheering me on. She thought we were all rowdy and drunk and she didn’t pay us any attention. Then, later, I was waiting for Ahmad and she came by and we struck up a conversation. I asked her for her e-mail address because when someone asks for your number, it might be too personal and you might not want to give it. But if you ask for their e-mail address, they’ll give it. I was right.
Did she know you were an NFL player?
No. Usually I tell people if I meet them that I’m a construction worker. One time my friend said he was an astronaut and I said I was a manager at Gap. All I told her was, “I just moved here from Arizona and I’m just trying to live right now.” She’s from Sacramento, and if you remember at this time, we had to go to San Francisco to play them for the conference championship, so if I wanted her to visit me while I was out there, I’d have to tell her what I did. So two days later, I said “Hey, I play for the Giants.” She thought I meant San Francisco Giants. [Laughs] That’s when I thought she might be a keeper.
Well at least he will be getting some soon.... Thoughts?
