Strahan: Wants Glazer To Give HOF Intro, Not Dad

Jay Glazer’s had a pretty good week, but not for the reason you probably know. Yesterday he broke the news that a certain SbB-embargoed QB had the Vikings once again reaching for the lube. But it was something Michael Strahan said on Fox Sports Radio on Monday that I’m guessing is what really made Glazer’s day.

Jay Glazer licks woman's face while partying with Michael Strahan

(And Strahan is worried about what his dad would say? Opposite Day!)

While guesting on the Chris Myers & Steve Hartman Show on FSR, Strahan talked, unprompted, about who he would have as his presenter at his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The all-time, single-season NFL sack leader first brought up his dad as a possibility - then dropped an anvil on the idea.

No, Strahan’s dad will not be inducting him. Nor will any coach or other mentor from his long, storied career. Read more…

Michael Vick Allowed To Resume His NFL Career

T.O.’s Twitter-based lobbying must have worked, as Michael Vick has been reinstated into the NFL - if any team wants him.

New “Brothers” Show Is Full of Zingers! (w/ Video)

Without a doubt, the show most likely to set the new fall lineup on fire is FOX’s new “Brothers” sitcom, starring Michael Strahan as - you’ll never guess - a retired football player named Mike. Oh, but the laughs don’t end there.

(That’s his character’s handicapped brother, and if you think they’ll tackle that issue with sensitivity, you’re wrong; they’ll be canceled long before that point in the story arc.)

Strahan is using his football money to run a restaurant or something and blah blah blah I don’t care. Here’s a clip of the show, and get ready to laugh your tooth gaps off!

Michael Strahan And Nicole Murphy Are Engaged

It’s been a few years since former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan got divorced from his first wife, Jean Strahan.  In case you don’t remember the damage done to Strahan in that ordeal, let us remind you that Strahan was ordered to give his wife $15 million and hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support because there are only so many diapers you can buy with $15 million.

Since then Strahan has spent his time doing just about anything he can to get some of that money back.  He’s got the job working on FOX’s NFL studio show, and he even has an ill-fated sitcom ready to debut on FOX as well this fall.  Now that he’s starting to recoup some of his losses, for some reason Strahan has now gone out and found another way to lose the money again.

NO Saints Coach Knows Plenty About Screenplays

There’s something in the human endeavor that encourages those successful in one arena to attempt success in a wildly different one.  For example, NFL people can’t stop diving into Hollywood helmet-first.  Jim Brown is the textbook example, but Merlin Olsen and Alex Karros couldn’t resist working in front of the camera.  Michael Strahan owes much to the FTD Florists man.

Sean Payton accepts Coach of the Year

(Next stop: The Academy Awards)

And now New Orleans head coach Sean Payton wants in on the action.  He wrote a screenplay, you see, and he… wait, he didn’t even write the screenplay?  He had a four-page idea for a screenplay and gave it to someone to write and now CAA is shopping it? That’s how it works? No wonder NFL players want into Hollywood; they work that hard before lunch at the first two-a-days of the year.

Michael Strahan Set To Star In Worst Sitcom Ever

A ton of people have Super Bowl rings, but not everyone gets their own sitcom. So when I read that Michael Strahan scored a lead in a show premiering this fall, I had to think he’s really moving up in the world. Wait, you say it’s a FOX show? How the mighty have fallen.

Michael Strahan

In “Brothers,” Strahan plays an retired football player named Mike living it up in New York , thereby showing off his range. But you better believe hijinks will ensue. And with the help of his wacky family, Mike will surely teach us all to laugh, and love.

Seriously, read the description and tell me this isn’t going to be just awful.
