Terry Bradshaw of Fox NFL Sunday has parlayed his "country bumpkin" character into a cottage industry. He's an NFL analyst, he's an actor (we can't forget his roles in Hooper, Cannonball Run nor his naked booty scene in Failure to Launch), a cattle ranch owner, a country singer, a motivational speaker and now Vegas showman?

That's right, Terry Bradshaw will doing a one-man show at the Mirage Hotel aptly titled "America's Favorite Dumb Blond … A Life in Four Quarters." According to the show's website, the show is "a 70 minute show of comedy, storytelling and singing, starring one of the country's best loved football announcers, sports legends and performers…" Yes, Bradshaw is a ham and isn't afraid to admit it

You want to know more about the show? The description continues: "… accompanied by his singer/dancers the I-Qties, Terry shares stories about growing up in Louisiana, his 4 Super bowl rings, 3 marriages, toupee model days, his cattle ranch fiasco, and his broadcasting and acting careers divided in "four quarters". Sprinkled throughout the show are short video clips of the funniest moments of his life, plus a few surprise guests." The "I-Qties?" That's a classic Bradshaw invention. 

The show takes place later this week for two days on June 28 and 29. Bradshaw told Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch that if the show is successful, he would like to take it on the road. Imagine Bradshaw playing in Branson, Missouri and in a theater near you. It's not a stretch to think that Bradshaw would go on tour with this act.

And while you may think "The Blond Bomber" may be crazy for doing a Vegas show, perhaps he's crazy like a fox. He's going to make some money from his performances and entertain a few people in the process… maybe.
