The show didn't start off as depressing as it did yesterday with animals dying, but we did get to talk to a Goose. Tony Siragusa that is, former NFL great and current commentator on FOX NFL Sunday. We also got some new football jokes from Costaki and another episode of "The Zany Report."
Tony “The Goose” Siragusa was a larger than life persona on the football field as a plater, and continues to be as a member of FOX's NFL broadcast team. But unlike those other broadcasters than call the came from the booth, Tony gives us his analysis from his unique a position in the end zone. His athletic career ignited in high school when he became the New Jersey state wrestling champion. In football, he later earned All-American honors at the University of Pittsburgh before signing as a defensive tackle with the Indianapolis Colts (1990-1996) and then the Baltimore Ravens (1997-2001). Tony helped lead the Ravens to their first Super Bowl title in franchise history. Follow Tony on twitter. You can also pick up a copy of his new book GOOSE – The Outrageous Life & Times of a Football Guy
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
It's time for another exciting episode of the best joke filled, news feature hosted by a stand-up comedian named Bob Zany, The Zany Report. But the Report isn't the only thing you'll get when Bob calls in, we'll also find out where he's playing next, Bing Crosby will tell a joke, and some lucky fan will win prizes after fixing one Zany's less than successful punch lines. So you'd better tune it because it's going to be huge! In other news, Bob was recently featured in the Matt Damon film, The Informant! and is the star of the new documentary Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany which you can find here and pre-order the 2-DVD set here. Follow Bob on Facebook and twitter. Bob also has a new Podcast, "The Bob Zany Show" with Zan Aufdeerheide.
