Ryan Seacrest is slated to do pre-game and halftime hosting spots during the Super Bowl next February. I’m not really sure about this gig for Ryan, to me he doesn’t seem like the football type. According to TMZ, the American Idol host did actually play some high school football for the Dunwoody High School Wildcats in Atlanta. He played safety, and their team went all the way to the AAAA State Championship. Mmm, okay. I’d like to see some footage of that game.
Rumor has it that American Idol winner Jordin Sparks will be singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl – her father, Phillippi Sparks, attended Arizona State University and was drafted by the New York Giants in 1992, where he played until 1999. They now reside in Glendale, Arizona.
The Super Bowl will be held Sunday, February 3, 2008 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
