Eating weird things is apparently becoming a go-to move for ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown crew. Analysts Randy Moss and Charles Woodson have been eating unusual dishes at different tailgates for both the broadcast and a separate YouTube show this fall, while Woodson took the One Chip Challenge last week, and Steve Young got in on the fun this week.

And Moss gets in on the action later in that clip, biting off a small fish head of some sort around the 0:39 mark. So that’s fun, and a different approach to sushi, I guess. And it also made for a more original fish-themed occurrence on a Seattle broadcast than the standard B-roll of tossed fish at Pike Place Market. Young seems like a long-shot candidate to pick for “ESPN personality most likely to bite the head off a raw fish on television” (Rex Ryan must have been the clubhouse favorite, right?), but hey, you do what you have to do for TV. He certainly produced a memorable moment with this.
