Justin Tucker immediately went from Baltimore Ravens kicker to household name on Monday night after his stunning 61-yard field goal sailed through the uprights to seal their 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions.
Well, he followed that up by being a guest on The Peter Schrager Podcast to discuss the kick, his love for opera music — the man can sing opera in seven different languages . . . yes, seven (scroll below for visual evidence) — and the outpouring of support he received after the field goal. In fact, his cell phone battery died because of all the text messages he received.
“One [person] that really stands out is [Bears kicker] Robbie Gould sent me a text saying congrats and at the same time, ‘Thanks for keeping the Bears in the playoff race,’” Tucker said. “I didn’t get a text, obviously, because I don’t know the guy, but Aaron Rodgers opened up a radio show with some nice things to say about me.”
Schrager was also joined by Josh Charles of ‘The Good Wife’ to talk his Ravens’ fandom.
And for those who paid close attention above, we’re not kidding about the opera thing. The man’s got skills . . .
