What a week for Justin Tucker: Fame, free soda and The Peter Schrager Podcast!
DEC 19, 2013 11:56p ET
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.
What does a man get for making six field goals in a game? Apparently, a bunch of free soda.
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.
