When asked about his plans for Super Bowl week, Denver Broncos linebacker Nate Irving provided the best answer in the history of answers: “I’m actually going to sit in my hotel room, play my ‘Pokemon’ game” (The Wall Street Journal).

Nate Irving, you rock. (Or should I say Solrock?)

While Irving, a self-described introvert, said he sometimes tries to hide his Pokemon passion from his teammates — “[I] bend over in the seat, like I’m asleep, or play with my head down” — he doesn’t mind being eccentric: “I know not too many people are into the things I’m into. I just embrace that and I enjoy it.”

However, there are still questions in need of answers here. What’s Irving’s favorite Pokemon? Exactly which game is he playing? Does he want to come over to the FanSided offices and play some Pokemon sometime? Come on media folks in New Jersey, get some answers!
