MNF promo This was taken while filming a Monday Night Football Opening Skit with legendary actor Leslie Nielsen.

This will always be the best moment of my career for me personally, because I have always been a huge fan of Leslie’s work. He is a brilliant comedic actor, but he actually started in theater and dramatic acting. He is best remembered for his character in the “Airplane” and “Naked Gun” movies, and I was humbled to get to re-enact with him an updated version of one of the most famous film lines of all times, “Don’t Call Me Shirley.”

I did the set-up, he delivered the punchline! What an honor! The promo we did together was actually nominated for a Sports Emmy Award the year it aired.
