The Super Bowl Gets More SUPER

You might think that Richard Simmons hanging out with Howie Long and company is just an anomaly, a tiny bit of happenstance. But then again, you don't know who's hosting the pregame and halftime festivities for Fox at Super Bowl XLII.

That's right: Seacrest In!

Word on the street is, "Idol" ringmaster [Ryan Seacrest] will handle pre-game and halftime hosting duties of the Super Bowl on Fox next February. Because nothing says manly man like a guy with frosted highlights.

We see nothing wrong with this, frankly; heck, get this guy a typewriter, and he's practically Jay Mohr anyway. Get him ready for his own show! And, finally, NBC has a reason to hire him.
