ESPN Hires Frank Caliendo
Have you felt that there was something missing about this NFL season, but you just couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was? Like, at first you were sure it was the absence of your favorite refs, but even their return hasn’t filled the void. Well, ESPN thinks they’ve identified the problem, and they’re all set to feed you your fix.
Starting this Sunday, ESPN will be adding former FOX pregame comedian Frank Caliendo to the Sunday NFL Countdown team. That’s right; the guy who brought you spot on impressions of retired NFL broadcasters and one former US President is back! Caliendo, who parted ways with FOX after 8 years, will be the first comedic act to join Countdown (assuming we’re not counting Michael Irvin and his cracked-out ramblings). FOX replaced Caliendo with former Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle.
