As you have surely heard by now, Jake Delhomme is back in the NFL.

The man who quarterbacked the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl in 2003, and who is renowned as a great guy and good leader, but who in subsequent years became synonymous with terms like “interception” and “noodle arm”, is now a member of the Houston Texans.

But no matter where Delhomme goes, now or at any time in the future, to me he’ll always be Bojangles’ Defender of the Fresh Biscuit.

[Kudos to Redditor cjf212 for pulling this one out of the archives.] 

Seriously, this may be the greatest athlete commercial I’ve ever seen – at least in terms of just straight ridiculous hilarity.

What could be better than Jake Delhomme in a cape defending cute southern belles from nefarious peddlers of stale biscuits?

Here’s what I’d love to see: for Delhomme to be mic’d up during the Texans’ next game, and then to hear “Thoooose are not fresh biscuits!” when pass after T.J. Yates pass falls harmlessly to the ground or into the hands of the checkdown receiver.

If only.

Anyway, this got me to thinking…what is your favorite athlete commercial?

And don’t submit the Mean Joe Greene one. I know that one is great. But I’m talking about your favorite commercial starring an athlete that makes you giggle and/or guffaw every time you see it.

Jake Delhomme protecting the world from stale biscuits does it for me. Which ones do it for you? I’m sure there are plenty I’m forgetting, lost as I am in laughter at repeat viewings of Jake Delhomme: Bojangles’ Defender of the Fresh Biscuit.
