Many are bigger than the average human, they have insane workout schedules, eat more than what a doctor would suggest and can be downright imposing. But when I’m out there on the field, it’s time to play.”Seeing his gentleman side is much safer.The physical appearance of these athletes is enough to make a typical person ball up in a cocoon and not come out until the coast is clear. I'm assuming he's like a Teddy Bear and the type of guy who will pick you up after flatting you like a pancake..“When people ask, ‘Antonio, are you mean?
