Before every Ravens game, the team’s fine media relations staff sends reporters a useful packet of stats, info and other tidbits to help us find enough Sunday subplots to make sure you’re drowning in Ravens coverage.
Each week, they include a quick player Q&A. This time it was defensive end Cory Redding, whose hobbies apparently include rollerblading and crashing kids' parties that have those inflatable moon bounce things.
What does Redding -- who is 6-foot-4 and nearly 300 pounds -- like to do in his spare time?
“I ride my fourwheeler around. I shoot basketball. I’m a big kid with my kids,” the 31-year-old said. “I get on the roller blades, ride bikes backwards, just entertaining my kids somehow. I like to go to those little kiddie places and jump on the moon bounce. I’m really a big kid. People really don’t know that about me. I seem like I’m serious, but I’m a big goofball. Mostly, I’m a big kid at heart. Life is too short to be serious all the time.”
I would pay $10 to watch Redding bounce around in an inflatable tent with a bunch of kids. What about you?Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
