Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am has begged for the chance to try out for American football team the Miami Dolphins
will.i.am wants to become an American football player.
The 'Boom Boom Pow' rapper has taken to his blog to beg for a chance to try out for the Miami Dolphins.
He said: "I always wanted to play football, from the age of 10 that was my dream. I always loved the game of American football. I'm sad that I never followed my football dreams. Lately I've been thinking, is it too late to do it now? No way!
"I want to try out for the Miami Dolphins."
The 34-year-old star goes on to boast about how quickly he can run - he even challenges 100m sprint world record holder Usain Bolt to a race - claiming his prowess would be an asset to any team.
Referring to former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson, will.i.am claimed: "I'm very fast, beyond fast. I've raced Jamal Anderson and I smoked his a*s. I am extremely fast and I'm proud of it. I take pride in my cheetah speed. So I want to put this talent to use."
