One of their sons played soccer this past season and Eddie had to step in as one of the coaches. Apparently Eddie did so well that the parents and kids alike wanted him to keep being a coach. Instead, this time it was for their basketball team. Though, Eddie never played basketball as a sport so he doesn't have much experience in being a player like he did with soccer.
He said on The Bobby Bones Show that he plays NB2K and because of that he at least knows the fundamentals of basketball. Eddie continued by adding that since he controls the players on the game, it would be kind of the same since he'd be telling the players what to do and where to play.
