Former Penn quarterback recalls his college football days
San Francisco Giants infielder and Major League Baseball veteran Mark DeRosa has joined the studio cast of characters at MLB Network during the 2011 postseason. Inviting current players or managers to be a part of the studio shows on sports networks during the postseason is not uncommon. To help get DeRosa comfortable with his new surroundings for the veteran was recently a guest on Intentional Talk, hosted by baseball announcing veteran and former host of Best Damn Sports Show Period Chris Rose and former player Kevin Millar.
During a Q&A session DeRosa discussed a few topics, including his college football days at Penn, where he played quarterback.
After some minor digging through Google, I found this image of DeRosa preparing to throw a pass in his old Quakers outfit, via The Daily Pennsylvanian.

Taco Bell has decided to follow up last year’s 2010 MLB postseason Mariano Rivera “closer” spots with San Francisco Giants reliever and self-proclaimed funniest man to ever live Brian Wilson. The results are about what you’d expect. Personal opinion of Wilson’s humor aside, you’d think they’d want someone who was actually in the playoffs for these commercials, wouldn’t...
The 2011 offseason figures to be an interesting one for the Giants.
With changes in management and a disappointing follow-up to the 2010 World Series win, San Francisco baseball fans will eagerly anticipate some offensive additions.

San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson was previously only a small part of the NBA 2K12 advertisement that features a variety of people—including Michael Jordan, Mark Cuban and Drake, among others—arguing who the best NBA team of all-time is. But now Wilson gets his own spot, in which he describes in detail why the 1986 Boston Celtics are undoubtedly history’s greatest...
