There was a large crowd of teenage girls at the Arizona Cardinals training camp on Thursday, but they weren’t there to watch football.
They were there to see actor Channing Tatum, who was watching the Cardinals training camp.
“I’ve never got to come to camp before so I figured I’d come out and see what these guys are doing,” Tatum told Arizona Sports 620’s The Big Red Rage Thursday.
Tatum is a long-time friend of Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes, who was celebrating his 30th birthday.
Rhodes joked about how Tatum’s appearance at camp caused quite the frenzy.
“It was a mob scene,” Rhodes said. “Literally like on any other day, it’s probably 10 people down there. Today it was quite a few.”
The hundreds of women in attendance made sure Tatum was warmly received.
“I made a one-handed catch in practice and I thought the fans were [cheering] for me and I looked back and it was [Tatum] doing some stretch,” Rhodes joked.
