And on Thursday, the Arizona Cardinals' star receiver added another accomplishment to his already impressive resume: conductor. Fitzgerald led the Phoenix Symphony in a rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner during Thursday night's season-opening concert.
And so the question was inevitable: Which is harder, Larry, playing football or conducting an orchestra?
"I think a well-conducted orchestra is probably a lot tougher than playing football," Fitzgerald told azcentral.com. "To play at such a high level, consistently, together for so long, I think that's truly a talent."
As far as we can tell, Fitzgerald was not wearing his UGG boots while conducting.
