It wasn’t quite as comical as Matt Hasselbeck’s random appearance on South Park last season. But as television debuts go, Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice made a pretty funny one on Thursday night.
Rice appeared in the opening scene of the season premier of FX’s “The League,” a comedy about a group of friends who are hyper-competitive about their fantasy football league.
One of the show’s characters, Ruxin (played by Nick Kroll), celebrates his 2010 championship by filming a parody of the 1985 Chicago Bears’ “Super Bowl Shuffle” titled “Shiva Bowl Shuffle.” The Shiva Bowl is the name of the fantasy league’s championship game. (As for where that name comes from, it’s a long story. A funny one, but long nonetheless.)
The video below shows a very short preview of the episode. We’ll keep an eye out for a full version of the song.
UPDATE: Someone has uploaded the video to YouTube, though it’s not the best quality. Check it out:
