Joe Flacco talks about being a family man, changing diapers


Baltimore Ravens quarerback Joe Flacco is just your average dad and husband (you know, with a Super Bowl ring and a six-year contract for $120.6 million). Flacco recently took some time out of his busy off-season of swimming in a pool of money a la Scrooge McDuck to talk with USA Today about his regular ol’ family life.

First, Flacco discussed how his new contract won’t change his life priorities:

Listen, money helps out in the comfort level and the ability for my wife and I to relax. We’re very fortunate in that respect, but the important thing in my life is my family — my wife, my kid, my parents, my brothers and sister and all my extended family.

 

I think those things are as important as football.

NOTHING IS AS IMPORTANT AS FOOTBALL, JOE!

Flacco then went on to talk about his baby born back in June, specifically the whole messy diaper thing: “No, I’m not changing diapers. It’s my wife’s job. I might get in trouble for saying that!”

Yeah, you might. (But hey, now that Ray Lewis is retired perhaps you could hire him as a nanny? He seems kind.)
