Did Ellen DeGeneres enable a streaker on the field during last night’s Baltimore Ravens- New England Patriots game? Streaker Mark Harvey stormed the field during the NBC Sunday Night Football game wearing an Ellen cape and”Don’t be a bully, be a superhero,” painted on his chest. In April, Degeneres gave Harvey the cape after she learned he was a fan when he pulled a similar stunt at the Baltimore Orioles’ Opening Day.
Harvey has been nicknamed the Baltimore Batman for his advocacy against bullying. The now infamous streaker runs a website called Biggerthanbullying.com and sells t-shirts and bumper stickers with the mantra, “Don’t be a bully. Be a Super Hero.”
Sorry jersey chasers… Ryan Lochte will not be the next Bachelor, but you can still see him on TV only in his own reality show. The Olympic swimmer confirmed he is getting his own reality show, “They follow me on my normal day, just training, doing my own fashion line…It’s gonna be me, me being myself. And I’m pretty much going to show the world that and my new fashion line.”
In case anyone was confused, the show will be about Lochte and his clothing line. The 28-year old will join the E! family- who is apart of the NBC Network and home to the Olympics. It is unclear if Prince Harry will be making any cameos…
Evander Holyfield is a World Champion boxer and bronze medalist at the ’84 games, but the Today Show did not know who Holyfield was and interviewed him as a fan in front of Buckingham palace. Holyfield gave up his identity on Twitter saying : “The @todayshow did interview me yesterday and ur right they didn’t mention who I was.”
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers may have failed to win back-to-back Super Bowl, but the quarterback is being honored with one of the most elite nods for athletes who have reached super star status by hosting Saturday Night Live.
Last year’s Super Bowl MVP hinted at the idea during a Milwaukee radio interview. “I’m hopeful that we can figure something out there,” Rodgers told ESPN 540.
Already getting camera time, Rodgers was a special guest commentator at Super Bowl XLVI on NBC. It seems at though Rodgers was able to impress NBC execs off the field to be considered for the honor. Rodgers even talked to some current cast members about signing-on. Past quaterbacks who have hosted SNL include Peyton Manning, Joe Montana and Tom Brady.
Despite winning one more Super Bowl than his brother, Eli Manning needs to win a few more Oreo twist-offs before he is considered.
