'Magic Mike' star Channing Tatum crashes Cards camp

FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Typically, football is known for a male demographic, but you'd never suspect it if you were up at Cardinals Camp in Flagstaff Thursday afternoon.

Hundreds of women flocked to the practice field furthest away from all of the action for one reason. A-list celebrity Channing Tatum was there to support his good friend, Cardinals defensive back Kerry Rhodes.

Tatum is known for his roles in "21 Jump Street," "Magic Mike" and "The Vow."

The loudest part of practice didn't come when John Skelton threw a 20-yard touchdown pass. Instead, it came when Tatum got up to leave the area and nearly 200 women stood up and screamed.

Rhodes told us, "It had to be the largest crowd on that end of practice in history. So he did a good job of that."

Quarterback John Skelton said he "thinks some of the guys' wives were peeking over there."

Just goes to show you that you never know what you're going to see when you head up to Flagstaff for a day of football with the Arizona Cardinals.
