There are two things we know Odell Beckham Jr. hates: losing and water.
The Giants wide receiver made the unusual revelation about the latter on Friday when explaining why he was dehydrated and needed an IV before halftime in last week's 34-13 loss to the Eagles.
"I really don't like water," he said. "I'm trying. I really just don't like it. You get that stomach feeling -- it's all slushy. I'm trying to just stay hydrated. Sometimes I gotta get an IV, it's just necessary. If you're cramping in both calves it's hard to run and make cuts."

Beckham's disdain for water also came as a bit of a shock for head coach Pat Shurmur.
"That's news to me, yeah," he said. "I mean, listen, Odell and I and the players talk about a lot of things. We don't talk about our like and dislike for water."
Shurmur then uttered under his breath, "What a business."
