  • "My youngest son's name is Marcus. And he's a warrior, both through good and bad. The kid would rather fight than talk, but he's also very strong and people look up to him because he is very intelligent. Sometimes, I kinda wished that I named him something different. Therefore, his wrestling and fighting might have been curbed." Jul. 12, 2010: Report as inappropriate
