PressBox caught up with Ravens kicker Justin Tucker to ask him about his favorite “cheat” food, his cooking abilities and whether he has any pets.
PressBox: What’s your favorite “cheat” food?
Justin Tucker: Royal Farms fried chicken.
PB:Who was your favorite sports star when you were a kid?
JT: Adam Vinatieri.
PB:If you weren’t playing football what would you be doing for a living?
JT: I’d like to think I’d be doing something pretty baller still, so maybe I’d be one of those dudes on “Million Dollar Listing: New York,” selling multimillion dollar estates and high-rises and penthouses.
PB: On a scale of one (terrible) to 10 (awesome), what is your cooking ability
JT: Three. I can do breakfast. I can scramble eggs, and I can flip bacon.
PB: What’s your favorite thing to do on an off day?
JT: I like going and getting a cup of coffee and going to the park with [my wife] Amanda and [son] Easton and just letting him run around.
PB:What’s your favorite city to visit on the road?
JT: Pittsburgh. When they break out “Renegade,” it’s awesome
PB:What is your all-time favorite movie?
JT: “American Psycho.”
PB:Do you have any pets?
JT: No. We did have a Great Dane at one point. He was about my size, too. Picture a dog that looked like a Holstein cow. A hundred-and-eighty-five pounds, that was our little guy.
PB:What’s on your bucket list as far as a place to visit that you’ve never been to before?
JT: At some point I want to make it to every continent in the world, so we’ll say, just because it sounds interesting, taking a helicopter over Mount Fuji.
PB:What’s your favorite thing about Baltimore?
JT: That’s a tough one. I got to pick one? Everybody is all about crab cakes, I’m more crab dip or a crab pretzel.
