This may surprise some of you: Entourage, that show about rich men and their cell phone conversations, is still on the air. It's the final season, and so the producers are really going all out: there's a pro athlete cameo (or five or ten) in just about every episode. Last night's show, "Second to Last," included Mark "Cuuuuubes" Cuban, Mark Texeira, Amar'e Stoudamire, Michael Strahan, and Alex Rodriguez in just over 20 minutes of air time. Here's a memorable clip.
I don't want to spoil anything for you—and if you're a truly committed fan and you haven't seen last night's episode yet, you may want to skip it—but I will say that all of the pros turned in extremely convincing performances of rich athletes talking about money on cell phones. Kudos to A-Rod, especially, for that whole walking-while-talking bit. It's a gift.
