Comedian Conan O’Brien trolled the NFL over a player who had a math paper published.
Conan O’Brien is a Twitter sensation. He also happens to be rather hilarious and as so many comedians do, he tries to hit on current events.
He did that successfully Saturday after learning that a Baltimore Ravens player had co-authored an article in a math journal.
O’Brien is of course making light of the fact the NFL has long been known as “The No Fun League”, and recently that has been best represented by it making seemingly random decisions in disciplining its players.
The player in question is Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel, a Penn State graduate who had several of his papers published throughout his time in Happy Valley. The paper in question was published earlier this offseason.
Urschel had a 4.0 grade point average at Penn State and plans to continue his career in math when his NFL playing career is over. In fact, he could go the route of recently retired Chris Borland, who retired after just one successful season in the league.
But as he says, he’s “addicted to it (hitting people)”.
