Jimmy Fallon virtually commits to Detroit Lions
April 27, 2010, 2:20PM
If Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh make it big with the Detroit Lions, general manager Martin Mayhew might want to consider bringing in Jimmy Fallon as a talent scout.
Fallon, the veteran star of such comedic smash hits as The Entrepreneurs,Taxi and The Grungy Clementine – OK, that last one was completely made up, but really, would you have known had I not told you? – has had a knack for hosting future Lions draft picks on his late-night show … before they even become Lions draft picks!
Fallon was thankful, but quick to point out, “Maybe this is an invitation to play for the Lions. I don’t know what this is, but I’m not that good at football. I’m pretty awful. I’m good at Madden football. So if they need a virtual video game guy who plays football, I can do that. And I can tell you right now, because I do love Detroit, my team on Madden ’11 will be the Detroit Lions.”
Here is a neat post by New York Magazine. You can scroll through and find pictures of the panel that attended the Evening with SNL in New York City presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which Jimmy moderated.

Swine flu has been proven to spread through beer pong. Will you stop playing beer pong on your show? “Never. I’d rather get swine flu than stop playing beer pong. I am not afraid.” —JIMMY FALLON
