Chicago Sun-Times
A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

So, I was on 'Friday Night Tailgate' the other day ...

A couple Saturdays back, I had the opportunity to make a fool of myself on the Fanzone segment of the hit Big Ten Network show "Friday Night Tailgate." Basically all this required was to show up, wear one of my old Michigan State hoodies and not make fun of the Michigan fan I was paired with for not, you know, actually attending the Ann Arbor school.

Anyway, the game turned out to be an instant classic as the Spartans squeaked out a 26-20 overtime victory after squandering a 14-point fourth-quarter lead. I was nervous enough to not even enjoy the catered lunch -- which should tell you a lot.

The static camera shot apparently did little to keep my 5-11 frame in the picture as I desperately tried to give the good people over at BTN the reaction shots they'd need. But, my actual face isn't exactly my best feature.

Here's what went down:

You can look at "Friday Night Tailgate" on, you guessed it, Friday nights at 11 p.m. ET or 10 p.m. Chicago time. It's actually quite funny and features the always well-groomed Mike Hall, who has been known to throw down an opinion or two around here.

Way to rock the MSU Baseball club hoodie. Not only did you go to State, you represented on the field. Got nervous just watching replays of that game...

L.O.L. Nice work, K. Koster! That Michigan chick was annoying, "He put that right where it needed to be." UGGGH!!!

Sorry I haven't been by in awhile. It was entertaining watching you watch the game. If you have any footage of yourself watching the last few seconds of the MSU - CMU game, I would love to see it. You can be my guest for the game in Mt. Pleasant in 2012. Fire Up Chips!!!
