This article has caused an uproar in our house.
It started with Dad - he said he'd heard the interview and was incredulous that Tony Veitch (remember him? He beat the hell out of his partner) could ask John Key if he'd like to be Shane Warne. This as a slight tangent from asking who Key's favourite sportspeople were.
But lo and behold, Key would be Warne in a heartbeat because of that thing he's got going with Liz Hurley. Other "normal manly sentiments" include a liking for Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie too.
So Katie and I checked out the online article ourselves and what do we find? Not a single sportsman in sight, but John Key at the top and pictures of Alba in a bikini, Jolie looking rather lovely, and Elizabeth Hurley showing a lot of cleavage down the side of the text.
Then there was this stunner of a quote from former league player Dean Lonergan:
"Those women who might be upset at his comments are obviously just disappointed they never made John Key's list and never will."
