With the NFL lock-out still looming, players have been forced to reassess their lives, search their souls, and take on new challenges. Some may even go a different career route altogether. While it’s not a stretch to believe that the average NFL’er might find himself stocking shelves at Home Depot (since they never actually went to class during their college days), the Manning brothers’ non-football related career options seem extraordinarily bright. Check out the duo as they protect the streets of Anytown, USA from the scumbags and lowlifes that seek to wreak havoc on civilization.
*Note the 2:00 mark. Eli’s inaccuracy has carried over from the 2010 season into his off the field work. This could be a problem.
A selection of music and movies to look forward to in April:
Apparently there were some viewers of the March 24, 2011 episode of Jimmy Fallon who didn’t get what was going on with the “special guest” sitting in with The Roots. Quite a few people hopped on Twitter to complain to Questlove:
- Who the hell was that guy? Why did Roots & @questloveaccommodate him by playing “Careless Whisper” over & over?
- @questlove Who was that sitting in with The Roots on saxophone tonight? @Jimmyfallon never introduced him.
For those unaware, it was a joke! The Roots were not “accommodating” just anyone. This is the Sexy Sax Man we’re talking about. Marvel at his awesomeness.
I’m sure everyone has their favorite late night show host and would likely defend their choice with a great deal of tenacity. But no matter whose side you’re on throughout 99.9% of the year, you’ve got to hand it to Jimmy Kimmel for being the lone late night personality to put on a show on a Sunday night, as he does each year following the Oscars. His show is a much needed shot in the arm after sitting through 3+ hours (I can only claim to have sat through about 90 minutes) of celebrities who are not naturally funny try to make the audience laugh. So exit Anne Hathaway and James Franco…and enter Kimmel. Maybe the Academy should get him to write the jokes/skits for next year’s ceremony. Mike Tyson teaching George W. Bush how to pronounce “big” words? Jessicas Biel and Alba going to Kimmel for personal training? Yes, please. Trust me, it’ll make you forget — at least temporarily — about Hathaway and Franco in Auto-Tune…
Pago at Stuck on a Rock wrote an awesome post about one of my favorite shows — The Big Bang Theory — in which he covers some of the cameos featured in past episodes, and ups the ante by listing a few cameos he’d love to see in the future (read it here). Well, the Feb. 24th episode, “The Toast Derivation,” didn’t feature anyone from Pago’s wish list, but Levar Burton’s appearance is one I think we can all appreciate.
