He likes cartoons and eating quarterbacks…and he’s all out of cartoons

On the outside, or to anyone with eyes, James Harrison looks like terrifying human being. He’s got insane workout routines and he certainly has the facial expressions to match the intimidating persona. However, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Harrison is just a regular guy who likes cartoons and pranks.

He’s a big fan of ‘Teen Titans’ the “Family Guy’ and ‘American Dad’. Harrison also is very generous and loves to joke with people but the real threat of the Harrison family is his mother, Mildred. Roger Goodell don’t want none of Mama Harrison. She will break his turn signal right off.
