Jimmy Fallon has brought his “Superlatives” schtick to the sports world before, with some truly funny segments on the NHL Playoffs, the Super Bowl, the NBA All-Star Game and more.
Well on Thursday, to honor the onset of the new NFL season, The Tonight Show added a new twist to Superlatives, asking football players to read their own deeply insulting superlatives.
Some of these are pretty good.
- NBC exec Jon Miller: ‘We have no desire to be the network of soccer’
- Inside The NBA pays tribute to retiring producer Tim Kiely: ‘You’re the best of all time.’
- The American Gladiators Documentary delivers, but not for the reasons you may have hoped for
- Kim Clijsters talks women’s sports’ drive for equality, International Tennis Hall of Fame, and more
Having the players themselves read their own superlatives was a nice twist, but as a result the superlatives weren’t as brutal as past rounds have been (Chris Bosh as”Most athletic Voldemort” is hilarious). In fact, many of them were kind of compliments.
Anyway, superlatives isn’t quiiite on the level of Jimmy Kimmel’s “mean tweets” segment, but it’s pretty good.
