Jason Campbell's Also a TV Star

So Gilbert's on Jeopardy, and Bruce Boudreau is hawking luxury cup holders, and now added to today's list of D.C. sports personalities in slightly awkward televised moments is Jason Candle, whose co-workers now include both Caveman Sellers and the Geico Caveman.

Since the whole joke with Campbell here is that his name kind of sounds like Candle, I was trying to think of other Redskins personalities who could star in hilarious "sounds-like" TV campaigns. Like Jim Zorn, for example. But for the life of me, I just couldn't think of any noun with some humorously awkward video potential that kind of sounds like Zorn. Anyone?

(Since I always forget to TiVo the games, I learned about this from the irrepressible Mister Irrelevant, which also has the video of Randle El's Hip Hip Hooray, which runs in the first five minutes of this year's 2008 Season in Review video.)

How about Chris Cooler? Cooley can be the spokes person for Thermos and sell Coolers for the Company. Maybe that's why it looked so "cold" in his room when he took that picture of the quiz. Sitting on a Thermos Cooler = Shrinkage

What if...Zorn, Boudreau, and Eddie Jordan all came together to do an Eastern Motors commercial? Now that would be funny.

Hey Steiny, any possibility you could get the "Bandwagon" going again?

Dan,
This is slightly off-topic, but is there anyway you can get your hands on that hilarious interview with Fred Smoot and Carlos Rogers that was on the comcast sports pregame show?

There is a short version on the Comcast Redskins website, but it doesn't have them ragging on Shawn Spring's dress style and their impersonations of the way he talks. Smoot is a character, man.

I also missed most of your segment with Smoot when he accidently calls you Dave. HAHA I would love to see that in full as well.
