In case you’ve been living under an Internet-less snow drift for the past two days (and that’s completely possible), incomparable sketch madmen Key and Peele have released the third installment in one of their most popular absurd sketches, East/West College Bowl, featuring some familiar NFL faces.
With a bevy of names to choose from, can one truly be the best? Answer: yes. Here are our twelve favorites.
Okay, so not every football player is going to be an award-winning actor, but it’s the guy’s real name.
Making Georgia proud.
In third place, a name that could also be the name of a dystopian novel.
Another real name.
Whose idea was this beard and have they received their Pulitzer? Weird graying chin-beard forever.
The OG weird football name starring the man himself, the inspiration for the sketches.
He goes to Northwestern, you guys. He’s a fancy athlete.
Is it sarcastic laughter followed by an early ’90s joke? Nope, it’s the actual name of a Packers player.
Is he sad or is he stoned or is he stoned because he’s sad? Someone give Strunk Flugget a hug, please.
The runner up, Aaron Rodgers himself – double points because this makes reference to another hilarious Key and Peele sketch.
Close one, Rodgers, but nothing can EVER beat Triple Parakeet-Shoes.
