As some players from the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos are tearing up New York City in their downtime before Super Bowl XLVIII kicks off tomorrow, one Broncos linebacker is relaxing alone in his hotel room with a nice game of Pokemon.
"I'm actually going to sit in my hotel room, play my Pokemon game," Denver Broncos linebacker Nate Irving told the Wall Street Journal when asked about his plans leading up to the big game.
Apparently, his teammates think that it's a little funny, and tease him when they catch him playing. "I try to hide it from them," Irving said, "like bend over in the seat, like I'm asleep, or play with my head down."
But Irving doesn't care that much. "I know not too many people are into the things I'm into," he said. "I just embrace that and I enjoy it."
Irving also said that he likes to play a lot of Call of Duty on his days off. He did not specify which version of Pokemon he plays.
