A year and a half ago, Sam Howell told the world that, as far as he knew, he had never eaten a hamburger or bit a steak or got close to seafood, choosing instead to eat meat and only chicken wherever he went. We’re not even talking about grilled, roasted or fried chicken – just tender and nuggets. He only eats at restaurants that serve chicken. While the other Tar Heels were eating pregame steak or postgame lobster, Howell was there every time, chicken tenders in hand. you might ask, I’m thinking right Sam Howell, right? Isn’t this about some six-year-old with the same name as the Washington Commander’s recently drafted quarterback?
You are thinking of the right person. In fact, we’re talking about a 21-year-old fifth-round pick from the University of North Carolina here.Although he opened up about his chicken habit in a December 2020 interview WTVD In Chapel Hill, his new professional identity opens up the story again, allowing people to discover a whole new world. In the interview, he named Chick-Fil-A as his favorite place to go for his Nuggets needs.
Honestly, the fact that it hasn’t been rediscovered in countless hours of draft discussions and research is shocking — in 2018, the former Michigan QB told stand report Jim Harbaugh warned his team members not to eat chicken “because it’s a neurotic bird” and argued that “when people start eating white meat instead of beef and pork, some kind of disease will spread to humans.” Harbaugh’s order there Incredible stuff, he probably avoided Howell when he was recruiting. Can’t imagine the tension those extremist chicken-pie views would have caused them both.
It’s probably always worse – another revelation in 2018 was Patrick Mahomes’ obsession with ketchup, which included putting it on top of steak, macaroni and cheese, and even adding it between two slices of white bread “Ketchup Sandwich”. Then again, Mahomes has a Super Bowl under his belt, so his odd eating habits aren’t questionable if those are the kind of results they’re producing.
