TMZ Sports content quiz ... would you rather hear a harrowing story of sports glory from one of the most feared athletes of his generation?
Or ... do you wanna hear about the time Verne Troyer made a single tackle in a full-contact football game against a guy (obviously) three times his size.
We thought so ...
Verne was out at LAX when the subject of football came up and he broke the epic news to us that he's not just a fan of the game ... he used to be a player!!
Check out the clip -- and remember, dynamite comes in small packages.
