1. Protein Shake
"I'm a big Muscle Milk guy: I drink 10 to 12 a week. It comes down to finding the right flavor. My wife, Robbie, likes chocolate—yuck. I prefer vanilla or cookies-and-cream."
3. Lil Wayne
"I love Lil Wayne; I think his music is just great. He's young, and his message to people is, 'Own it, focus on it.' A typical line from one of his songs is 'Life is a beach, I'm just playin' in the sand.'"
"My wife and I collect money from all of our trips. I especially like Argentina's. There's so much going on: buildings, sculptures, words, portraits, and all the bills are very colorful. Why don't we have pink and blue money in the US?"
"I am a freak about my car, a 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe. It's decked out with zero-rated tires, some tight twenties [rims] and, of course, a jamming stereo system."
6. Dallas Cowboys
"I've cooked for [All-Pro linebacker] DeMarcus Ware. He's big into meat, so I made him an eight-bone loin of lamb. And that was just one of his meat courses."
"I'm all about Lucky Brand because of the stretch they have. They glove you."

"That's the only movie that ever made me cry. The main character sits in his chair and misses his dead wife. I realized I don't want to grow old without Robbie."
9. Hooters Wings
10. Jump Ropes
"They are a key piece of workout equipment for keeping your agility up and your legs looking good—no one likes to have chicken legs."
