The Odell Beckham Jr. pregame show is something special
9:57 AM ET
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. comes onto the field almost two hours before every game along with his fellow wide receivers for a standard warm-up before the official warm-up. There is already a large group of fans in place when he arrives, positioned in spots to get a glimpse of the superstar’s every move and potentially an autograph or selfie.
This occurs in the northwest corner of the end zone during the New York Giants‘ home games at MetLife Stadium.
People come early to see Beckham, even finding his pregame spots on the road, and it’s not uncommon for them to leave with a special memory.
Rex Heller was one of the fortunate ones on the drizzly Sunday afternoon before the Giants hosted the Chicago Bears. The 8-year-old from Chappaqua, New York, was standing in the back corner of the end zone while Beckham practiced a go route and caught a 40-yard pass from quarterback Eli Manning. After playfully showing the ball to the camera staring him in the face behind the end zone, Beckham randomly threw it to Heller, who was attending his first Giants game.
