The Secrets

"Sometimes, if I take a digger in a run, it's not really that bad, I'll pretend I'm hurt so I can skip out on the autograph signing."

"I've got this obsession with SpongeBob Squarepants. I have all the gadgets: the blankets, the car freshener. I even sewed my own SpongeBob pillow. I'm still searching for women's underwear, but I do have the boxers."

"I play Dance, Dance Revolution alone. I could jump around on that mat all day. 'Karma Chameleon' by Culture Club is my song. It's got the best step routine."

"I'll be boxing professionally by the next off-season. I'm not sure how that's going to play with my organization, but I'm looking to do it regardless of what they say."

"I have to have a bowl of ice cream before every game -- vanilla with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. I eat it to settle my stomach. If I can get a brownie or cookie on the side, even better."

"When I get nervous, I have to go to the bathroom. It's usually before I go on stage for my rap show. I don't really get nervous playing. But before a show, man -- I blow the bathroom up."

"After we warm up before a game, I gotta take a dump. It's a huge benefit to release that gas you don't need. The facilities are beautiful. We're spoiled. If I get a good one, I know I'm gonna score two touchdowns."
