EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Serious. No nonsense. All business. Those are the words you always hear about New York Giants guard Kevin Zeitler.

But, everyone has to have some fun. Right? So, how does Zeitler have fun?

Well, veteran right tackle Mike Remmers — also a new Giant and fairly serious one Pat Shurmur has called a “real pro” — dropped a little inside info on Thursday.

He and Zeitler are bonding over the ancient video game system Nintendo 64, launched back in 1996.

“We were talking about Nintendo 64 yesterday and how much we love playing video games. He’s got his Nintendo 64 here with him. We don’t get a lot of free time but when we do it’s nice to just kick back, put the feet up and relax and just play some games.”

Nintendo 64. In 2019. Unbelievable. Of course, on a day when the Rolling Stones will be playing at MetLife Stadium I guess it makes sense that we would learn this.
