Competitive Eating is always good offseason work. Antwan Odom and Evan Mathis will are competing in a burger eating contest at the NASCAR Cafe in Las Vegas on May 22. So naturally, Mathis is going to practice by eating a six-pound burrito. God, I love offensive linemen.
Hebert enjoys the arts. Kyries Hebert was in attendance Saturday night during the Shen-Yun Performing Arts performance at Cincinnati Music Hall. “I was very impressed. I didn't know exactly what to expect,” said Kyries. “I've never been to a show like it. At no point did it lose my attention—full of highs and no lows, a very exciting show.”
