Phil Loadholt Likes "Goosebumps," Doesn't Like Snakes, Will Steal Your Milk


Bob Sansevere of the Pioneer-Press did one of those “get to know the player” pieces on Phil Loadholt, the Vikings’ gigantic new right tackle.  Among the things I now know about Phil that I didn’t before:

  • He likes to fish.
  • He hears the Mall of America is pretty nice.
  • If you are eating lunch with him and you grind your teeth on the fork, he will get angry.
  • When he was 7, he used to steal the milk out of his baby sister’s bottle and make her cry.  Perhaps that’s how he got so large?
  • He has zero taste in movies.
  • Ditto books.
  • He hates snakes and spiders.  But how does he feel about scorpions?
  • Getting busted for DUI was just a dumb mistake.
  • He wants to be President Obama for a day “to find out how hectic it is.”  Bullcrap.  He just wants a shot at Michelle.

I’ve read several of these questionnaire-type pieces on players, and not one of them has ever been into Russian ballet, New Wave cinema or the Flemish masters.  Weird.
