Let's give him a hand.
On Thursday, the New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr., whose one-hand touchdown grab became a highlight must-see, set the Guinness World Record for one-handed catches in a minute.
We're not sure what's more newsworthy: that Beckham flawlessly caught 33 passes from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees or that this record now exists. One of Beckham's teammates seemed to agree.
I didn’t know there was even a record for most 1 handed catches in one minute. Learn something new each day

ESPN filmed the officiated stunt in Scottsdale, Arizona, amid the Super Bowl buildup to Sunday's game. To count as a catch in this newly established Guinness category, the ball had to travel at least 10 yards.

Beckham was pretty pumped about the achievement. "The type of person I am, I love breaking records, no matter what it is," Beckham told ESPN.
The attempt was based on a VISA commercial that featured Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald catching balls with one hand while holding a cell phone in the other. Fitzgerald tweeted his congrats -- and a challenge.

Congrats, Odell. We really have to hand it to you.
