What Eddie Yarbrough of the Buffalo Bills Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked the Buffalo Bills’ Eddie Yarbrough about the body wash, Ryan Gosling movie, and soy sauce he can’t live without.

I eat sushi all the time. I love some soy sauce. My go-to setup is soy sauce and a little ginger. I always, always need the full-sodium soy sauce with my sushi. If I’m rating myself on my chopsticks skills, I’d give myself a B+ or an A-. That’s a B- when it comes to plastic chopsticks, and an A- with wooden chopsticks.

I’m a huge movie buff. I love to just sit down, cuddle up, and really lose myself in the movies. It’s a nice way to get some peace and some quiet. I’ve got maybe 400 DVDs and Blu-rays in my collection. If I could only pick three of my favorites, it would be Space Jam, The Sandlot, and La La Land.

I’m a grilled-cheese connoisseur. Anytime I travel for a game, I have to make a grilled-cheese stop. I’ve had some pretty outstanding grilled cheeses in my day. If a restaurant has a grilled cheese available, I’m not ordering anything else except that. At home, I’m a very classic kind of guy, so I make my standard: butter, cheap bread, American cheese. I have my little cast-iron skillet. Not a huge one, but a small one for omelets. It’s been passed down from my grandma to my dad. I’m pretty sure my dad didn’t give it to me, but I stole it from him. Well, he knows I have it, he just didn’t give it to me, so I don’t know what you call that exchange.

My teacher had me start journaling during my sophomore year of high school. It really just started as a project, but I was feeling a little bit better, and it helped me get my thoughts out of my head, so I stayed at it. Now I journal almost every day. I grab my ukulele, my journal, my pen, and my piano. And I’m all set.

Oh, my robe. Mm mm mm mm. First of all, if you ever come across a pair of Ugg slippers, buy a pair. For my birthday, I got an Ugg robe, so now I get the same material that’s inside the boot, but it’s inside my entire robe. It feels like you’re wrapped in a cloud of love, tenderness, and care. It’s the best thing to get in after a long, hard day. I bring my robe on the road. If I could only take one thing, my robe would be it. I’m 6’3”, 255 pounds, so usually, if you buy a robe for me, my elbows are catching the breeze and it’s above my knees. But this one fits me perfectly.

I use all my mom’s Dove body wash, and I like it way better than any of the guy stuff. I’m like, Oh, man, this is awesome. I use it every single day. But don’t tell my mom that.
