Devin Hester decided to celebrate his third selection to the NFL Pro Bowl like a little kid might, by buying toys. Hester says that he went to a local toy shop, and “bought everybody remote [control] cars, helicopters and aeroplanes — the big ones – gas [powered] remote [control] cars.”
Typically players buy each other fancy items like watches as rewards for helping them achieve goals, but I guess punt returners think a little differently since their job is to focus on a ball falling out of the sky while gigantic men race down the field to smash into them.
Hester leads the NFL in kick and punt return average.
