This assuredly must be a first,when it comes to NFL player introductions. Here's Atari Bigby of the San Diego Chargers giving his player introduction during Sunday Night Football on NBC:
As you can see, he introduced himself from "the University of Jah Rastafari High." Now, and I'm not 100% dead certain, but I believe he's the first of his kind here. Knowing how the iron fist of Roger Goodell rules, I wouldn't be surprised if the Commish sends a "random" drug test or two his way in the near future. It sure beats guys saying they're from "The U" or "THE Ohio State University."

It's always fun to see where players will say they went to school on their Sunday Night Football intros. Most players take the boring route and just say the name of their college, Miami-products will usually say "The U," Randy Moss will typically say "Rand U" and some players name their high school. Atari Bigby took another route. The Jamaican-born Chargers...
Atari Bigby’s Sunday Night Football intro on NBC was a first as far as we are concerned. Bigby introduced himself as repping the University of Jah Rastafari High. We are not one to argue, so we are just happy that he participated. We do wonder if he knows Snoop Lion.

One of my favorite parts of Sunday Night Football has to be the player introductions since some of the NFL talent have become pretty creative with where their went to college/high school.
During tonight's Chargers/Saints affair, San Diego's Atari Bigby decided to let his Rastafari flag fly:
After taking a gander at his Wikipedia page, Atari was born in Jamaica and chose...
San Diego Chargers safety Atari Bigby had some fun filming his player intro for NBC that aired during Sunday night's NFL game against the New Orleans Saints as he proclaimed that he went to college at "University of Jah Rastafari".
Wonder where that school is located in relation to Ball So Hard University.
In reality, Bigby actually attended the University...
I have a feeling the league may be contacting Atari very soon for a “random” drug test.During the Chargers defense introductions on Sunday Night Football, safety Atari Bigby proclaims he went to University of Jah Rastafari. Maybe it’s the dreadlocks, maybe it’s the stoned look on his face, maybe it’s his Doritos breath I caught a whiff on my patented Smell-O-Vision, but...
Chargers safety Atari Bigby stole the show during introductions on “Sunday Night Football” by declaring his schools to be University of Jah, Rastafari High. As our friends at Kissing Suzy Kolber joked, the seventh-year player from UCF can probably expect a visit from the league’s drug testers next week. Best Sunday night intro since Nate Burleson.
What did we learn Sunday about the NFL? The Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to move to Los Angeles, the Cleveland Browns are eliminated from the playoffs, Cam Newton can’t beat the Seahawks – at home, and Atari Bigby might like a little weed now and then.In Monday Night Football news, the Jets insist they aren’t having trouble selling tickets to tonight’s game. The NFL Network...
The Sunday Night Football introductions are time where NFL players rep their schools and universities both real and fake. Chargers safety Atari Bigby chose to rep a fake university before Sunday’s Chargers-Saints game, but we’re willing to bet that Bigby if the University of Jah Rastafari were real, Bigby would be valedictorian.
At the beginning of last night’s game between the Chargers and Saints, Chargers safety Atari Bigby announced that he went to “Jah Rastafari High.”
Of course this all started with Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs saying he went to “Ball so Hard University.”
