You probably know plenty about Tony Stewart. No one reading this site is unaware of his nickname, “Smoke,” or his three championships. But this NBCSports video tells us all a few things we had no idea about.

Being sleepy is nothing earth shattering, but who knew Stewart was a curling super fan? Or that he would be a ski jumper if he weren’t busy running Eldora Speedway? Certainly not us.

Liking animals more than people is nothing special though, we all can relate there.

It is slightly suspicious that 2/5ths of his fun facts just happen to be about the Winter Olympics, which NBC has the rights to, but we’re sure that’s just a coincidence and not Stewart answering leading questions to create an advertisement for NBC’s networks.
