ESPN "Celebrity" Fantasy Football League Filled With Big Names

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

ESPN is holding a Live Televised Draft tonight at 6:30 that you need to watch. Last year's was highlighted by Suzy Kolber (at least I think it was her) taking Brett Favre in the 1st Round, so you know this one is going to be good. Your hosts for the evening are Trey Wingo, Merrill Hoge, and fantasy guru Matthew Barry. But that's not what's important. It's the contestants that we care about right?

Tampa Bay Linebacker, Cato June (That's the biggest player you could get?)
Sean Salisbury (Too easy...pass.)
Michael Smith (I'm pretty sure you've got this one locked up Mikey)
Mark Schlereth (The Guiding Light has Stinky picking all offensive lineman. You get points for pancakes right?)
Steve Young (Concussions cause Young to draft Roger Craig in the 1st)
Chris Mortensen (A close 2nd)
Comedian and Contributor Nick Bakay (Ugh.)

....and my personal favorite. You may know him from such films as Kangaroo Jack, Tom Cats, Body Shots, and the Emmy Nominated...Mission to Mars. Ladies and Gentlemen.....

JERRY O'CONNELL!!!

Yes! As if he didn't overachieve enough with Rebecca Romijn....he now gets a fantasy spot on ESPN? Life just isn't fair. And could that league be any smaller? Just look at this motley crew (click for larger view).....


P.S.- I know you read blogs Michael Smith, and if you read this one I have something to tell you. If you don't run away with this league I'm going to make fun of you for a solid 2-month span. You have my word.

Jerry O'Connell gets a pass for being in Stand By Me, right? That was a good flick.

But the Sabrina cat guy? Wow, he's like a less funny version of Jay Mohr. Think aobut that.

Kyle,

I have to think that something you did twenty years ago and when you were fat doesn't count for much in terms of the "getting a pass" department, does it?

That's seriously a Murderer's Row of Celebrity, by which I mean the people ESPN could contractually force to participate in this mess, and Jerry O'Connell, who spends most of his days sitting by the phone, staying positive and thinking "ring."

And isn't it a bit odd that John Clayton didn't sign up for this? He's like the ultimate football nerd.

Bakay gets a pass because he was on Sports Monster a thousand years ago back when Comedy Central was still the Comedy Channel. Seriously great stuff.

Mortensen's gonna take Vick in the first round, because his sources say that the he won't take a guilty plea.

I hope Mike Tirico shows up to remind us that Cato June went to Michigan.

I expect this to be crap, and I won't be watching. But part of me wants to check out which ESPN shill will be forced by management to pick Brady Quinn in the second round.

Look at how much more bald Salisbury is now compared with that picture. Time to shave it, Barry Style.
