If you watched Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker single-handily outscoring the Detroit Lions, 18-16, Monday night, you might have heard his post-game comments where he talked about fantasy football.
"I've been getting hit up quite a bit on the Twittersphere leading up to the game for a couple days [by] people in their fantasy playoff matchups," Tucker said. "And those are very important.
"I'm glad I could come through, of course, for my reality team as well as for my fantasy owners. Thank you for picking me up, it means a lot to me. And hopefully I can continue to contribute to the successes of your respective teams."
Wrap your heads around an NFL player who, after kicking a 61-yard field goal to keep his team in playoff contention, treats his fantasy team with as much respect as his "reality" team. We have entered a new world, and that he is actively engaged with fantasy owners on Twitter just adds to it.
And did you know that Tucker sings opera ... in seven languages?
