‘If I die, I die:’ Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has ‘survival of the fittest’ approach to COVID-19
(FOX 9) – Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said he is taking a “survival of the fittest” personal approach to the coronavirus, even if it kills him. In a recent interview on Spotify’s “10 Questions With Kyle Brandt” podcast, Cousins said, “If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.” He also shared his opinion on masks.
“If 1 is the person who says, ‘Masks are stupid, you’re all a bunch of lemmings’ and 10 is, ‘I’m not leaving my master bathroom for the next 10 years,’ where do you land?” Brandt asked Cousins.
“I’m not gonna call anybody stupid, for the trouble it would get me in,” Cousins replied. “But I’m about a .000001.”
But Cousins also said that he respects the concerns of others and follows all Vikings and NFL protocols.
“I want to respect what other people’s concerns are,” Cousins said. “For me personally, just talking, no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m going to go about my daily life. If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival of the fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.”
