As the Premier League season approaches, NBC Sports linked up with comedian Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live, Hall Pass) to promote NBC’s Premier League coverage. Meet Coach Ted Lasso, an American football coach who has just been named the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
The video is entitled “An American Coach in London.”
He’s not just American, he’s Texan. So all the Yankee stereotypes about English football are ramped up with this comedic bit.
“Is there a third kind of football maybe I could look into?” Lasso asks. An Assistant Coach gives Lasso a crash course on Premier League by creating flash cards of Premier League FCs and describing their NFL counterparts.
“Manchester United. Super-rich, everybody either loves them or hates them,” the assistant says.
“Dallas Cowboys,” Lasso responds.
“Liverpool. Used to be great. Haven’t won a title in a really long time.”
“Also the Dallas Cowboys,” he answers.

Holloman’s interception for TD
The Dallas Cowboys opened their 2013 preseason campaign with a 24-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins thanks to strong showings by their rushing attack and new look defense.
Wait the Cowboys won a game running the ball and playing defense?
Now, that didn’t happen all of last season.
Here is what the Cowboys can take from the game:

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo says he believes he’ll play in Friday’s preseason game against the Raiders after sitting out last night’s Hall of Fame game.
“Heck yeah,” said Romo, via ESPNDallas.com. “Unless something weird happens and we sit everybody again.”
Romo should certainly play this week. I would expect him to get around two to three offensive series’...
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo wants to be clear, Jerry Jones didn't ask for Romo to spend more time at Valley Ranch, the Cowboys owner and general manager wanted Romo in meetings that he hadn't been part of in the past.
Romo didn't play in Sunday night's preseason opener but he did take a few minutes to answer questions from NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya...
Larry Allen will always be well loved in Dallas for opening up so many holes for Emmitt Smith and keeping defenders off of Troy Aikman, but the rest of the country might dig this guy for what he shared during his Hall of Fame speech.
The 6'3" offensive tackle has always been a big man so its no surprise that on his first date his wife cooked for him. What may be surprising...
CANTON, Ohio -- For newly-inducted Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Larry Allen, it was love at first bite.
"On our first date, she cooked for me," Allen said of his "heart-and-soul" Janelle in a speech that was one of the highlights of the Saturday ceremony in Canton. "She cooked me two chickens, french fries, baked me a cake and gave me a 40-ounce.
CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Rookie Devonte Holloman's 75-yard interception return with a tipped pass keyed the Dallas Cowboys' 24-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame game Sunday night that opened the NFL's preseason.
The sixth-round pick from South Carolina was perfectly situated when rookie Chad Bumphis had Matt Moore's pass go off his hands in the second...
It may only be the preseason Hall of Fame Game, but this touchdown by Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner gets our blood boiling here at Gamedayr.
Today the NFL gets it's preseason started, when the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins square off in this years' Hall of Fame Game. Although, Tony Romo will not be playing, young star wide receiver, Dez Bryant will suit up. I'm guessing he will only get a few snaps, maybe just one series. All eyes will be on Dez, as expectations for the fourth year Cowboy are...
So far my Fantasy Football 2013-2014 Forecast has covered every division in the AFC. With half of the NFL accounted for it’s time to go over the NFC, and I’ll start off with the NFC East. In case you haven’t read my past installments, I’m going to order the teams in each division that I predict will yield the most to least fantasy production among its players. The NFC East...

Tweet The NFL is back. Even though it was just a preseason, Sunday evening’s Hall of Fame game between the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins marked the official return of America’s favorite game. The Cowboys sat most of their starters and others played sparingly, but Dallas managed to play well enough to pull out a [...]
