Kevin Ware goes on David Letterman and presents the ‘Top 10′ (Video)

Kevin-Ware-David-LettermanIt has been five days since Louisville sophomore Kevin Ware suffered one of the worst sports injuries you will ever see, but the nation has yet to stop talking about it. I guess that’s what happens when someone snaps their leg and the bone literally sticks through their skin.

On Thursday night, Ware made an appearance on “The Late Show” with David Letterman to present the notorious “Top 10.” He was a great sport about the entire thing, laughing through some vivid memories that he has probably tried to push as far out of his mind as possible. At one point, Letterman asked  Ware if he was in a tremendous amount of pain when the injury occurred.

“No, being perfectly honest,” Ware said. “It was more so, when I saw it, I went into shock. It was like one of those things you see in ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre.’ Coach (Rick Pitino) kind of gave it away with his eyes.”

Shock can be a very, very good thing. Ware will be joining the Cardinals in Atlanta on Saturday when they sport these warmup jerseys for their Final Four game against Wichita State. Simply having him in attendance should provide a major emotional boost for the team.

Joe Flacco talks Ray Lewis, deer antler spray with David Letterman (Video)

Joe-Flacco-David-LettermanThe Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl champions, and Joe Flacco is the Super Bowl MVP. Most of us would not have predicted six months ago that this would happen, but that is the beauty of the NFL. While many have criticized Flacco for lacking personality and his own father even said he is a dull person, that isn’t stopping the 28-year-old from doing what Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks do.

On Monday night, Flacco appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and was surprisingly funny and not awkward at all. Letterman did his job by asking some uncomfortable questions, and Flacco handled them quite well. For example:

Letterman: Tell me about this guy Ray Lewis — what’s his deal?
Flacco: (Laughs) Well half the time I don’t know but…
Letterman: Is he the spiritual leader of the team?
Flacco: Oh, yeah, he’s the leader in many ways, that definitely being one of them.
Letterman: And he uses deer hoof spray or something like that?
Flacco: (Laughing) You’ll have to ask him about that one, man.

The Ravens quarterback also joked about his contract situation and how the team’s owner is going to have to pay up, which is certainly true now that he has silenced the critics and led the team to a championship. In reality, the fact that Flacco keeps a low profile and rarely makes headlines for what he says is a positive thing for the team. Baltimore needs him to be a quarterback, not an entertainer.

Johnny Manziel does the Top 10 on David Letterman (Video)

In the span of a few months, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has gone from freshman signal caller to national celebrity. Manziel became the first ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. On Monday, the 20-year-old joined David Letterman for the Top 10 perks of winning the Heisman Trophy.

Manziel has the type of confidence that could make Texas A&M one of the best teams in the SEC over the next couple years. That type of swagger is rare in a freshman quarterback playing against some of the best teams in the nation, and Johnny Football has shown he is more than up to the challenge this season.

Making appearances on late night talk shows at age 20 and dating a model that looks like this? I’d say the youngster from Texas has a bright future ahead of him.

David Letterman reminds Andrew Luck about all the pressure he’s facing (Video)

There’s no greater reward for being picked No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft than getting reminded by a late-night TV host about all the pressure you’ll be facing. That’s what happened with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was interviewed by David Letterman on Thursday night. Keep in mind that Letterman is a big Colts fan, so ribbing Luck about replacing Peyton Manning was a natural topic. It’s just that Letterman does it better than most.
