You know, we didn't mean to come across as openly derisive toward Ryan Seacrest yesterday when we pointed out that he will be a co-host of the Super Bowl this year. In fact, we clearly underestimated the guy.
You see, according to TMZ, Seacrest has more football experience than anyone could have realized.
To be filed in the Who Knew? category, Ryan actually played high school football for the Dunwoody High School Wildcats in Atlanta. Ryan, as a strong safety, took his team all the way to the AAAA State Championship. Tackled by Seacrest— good times!
If this is true ... we bet Seacrest's old football buddies make fun of him a lot these days. Just saying.
