Rob Gronkowski and Odell Beckham Jr. were on ESPN's Bristol campus Wednesday as the finalists of the 2016 "Madden" Cover Vote. Spoiler alert: OBJ won and simultaneously became the youngest player to receive the nod. He also took the burden of the Madden Curse off Richard Sherman's back ... if you believe in such things.
Anyway, we seized the opportunity to spend some quality time with the two NFL stars. In an attempt to get to know the men behind insane one-handed catches and spiked football celebrations, we asked the hard-hitting questions. You know, like what their spirit animals are. Yeah, as if you hadn't been wondering.
1. What was your first AIM screen name?
Gronk: ChickMagnet4Lyfe. [We cannot confirm spelling.]
OBJ: I can't remember, something with my initials at the beginning.
2. If you could have a dinner party and invite any three famous people (living or deceased), who would you invite?
Gronk: Pamela Anderson, Drake and Jay Z.
OBJ: Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.
3. What is your spirit animal?
Gronk: A dinosaur.
4. Favorite ice cream flavor?
Gronk: Cookies and cream -- especially milkshakes.
OBJ: Butter pecan.
5. Who is your favorite member of the Kardashian family?
6. What is your favorite romantic movie?
Gronk: "50 First Dates."
OBJ: "Lady and the Tramp."
7. Who is your style icon?
8. Who is your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?
9. If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
