This kid, Chris Thompson, is a rookie running back on the Redskins. And he does the oddest thing. Chris Thompson puts candy in his socks .
"I've been doing this since high school," he told The Washington Post. "I have to have a yellow and a red Starburst, and I eat one before the game and I put the other one in my sock. Yeah, it sounds kinda nasty, but I mean, I've done it ever since high school."
And he eats the sock one. Oh yeah, he eats it.
"At halftime," he said. "It tastes the same."
