Tonight’s BCS national championship game seems to heavily favor the Alabama Crimson Tide, but ESPN College GameDay expert and usual goofball Lee Corso isn’t conforming with that notion. In fact, dressed as a leprechaun, Corso went with the upset of Notre Dame over the defending champion Crimson Tide.
Corso has made a career out of being the goofy and lovable old guy, that dresses up in weird mascot costumes and happens to pick college football games. Corso probably has the easiest, funnest job in the entire country, but he occasionally rocks the boat with his picks.
Then again Corso isn’t known for his college football picks. Watching Corso harkens back to being a two year old watching Barney. You didn’t really know or care what was going on, but that giant purple dinosaur was about the coolest thing you had ever seen and you were hypnotized by it on a daily basis while you sat and played.
That’s what watching Corso is like, and it’s pretty much the same format. We sit around, talking about shapes and numbers while an old white guy dresses up in costumes and dances for our amusement.
Who cares about Alabama or Notre Dame, lets just get three hours with Lee Corso. That way nobody loses and everyone walks away a better person.
