VIDEO: Odell Beckham Jr shakes every soldier's hand at Vikings-Giants game
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Odell Beckham Jr. made Monday night headlines for losing his cool against a Minnesota Vikings defense that held the New York Giants star wide receiver to just 3 catches and 23 yards. But before kickoff, Beckham had a display of class and character that wasn't broadcast on national TV.
Following the national anthem performance by recording artist JoJo, Beckham walked the sideline at U.S. Bank Stadium and shook the hand of each and every military service member before they walked off the field.
Fox 9 Sports reporter and Vikings Gameday Live anchor Hobie Artigue captured the moment from the press box.
"The line was a little long. I didn't know," Beckham told the Sporting News. "I got halfway through it and I had to ask one of them, 'How many is y'all?' He said, 'There's a lot of us.' I said, 'Well, I really appreciate what y'all do.'"
