We got NFL star Antonio Gates out in Los Angeles and asked him two of the most relevant sports questions of the day and he answered ... with a quarter million dollars worth of car.
Antonio was sitting in what looks to be a Ferrari 458 Italia ... and was revving the engine the whole time we were talking ... so we can't be exactly sure what he said.
Here's what we do know ... that particular car retails for around $300k new ... so you might have just witnessed the most expensive distraction in TMZ Sports history.
We ain't mad at you, Antonio.
