Samuel L. Jackson intros Hornets-Clippers, quotes Ezekiel 25:17 (Video)

Samuel L. Jackson is known for being an actor who never turns down a role. I guess he has the same policy when it comes to repping professional sports teams.

Two years ago Samuel L. did a “Rise Up” video for the Falcons. On Thursday, he did the pregame intros for the Clippers-Hornets game in New Orleans, following the lead of Will Ferrell. Jackson wasn’t as funny as Ferrell, but he quoted passages from Ezekiel 25:17, the infamous prayer he said in “Pulp Fiction.” That was one of Jackson’s best roles (Rev. Sultan was my fave) so anytime he quotes it he’ll be thought of highly at LBS.

Jared Allen Was My Sous-Chef at Culinary School

Jared Allen is such a character, hearing him introduce himself by saying he went to culinary school for college is not a surprise.

Check out Jared Allen’s introduction on NBC and thanks to LBS contributor BobaMan for the tip:

Please, don’t even bother asking why he said it — it was a joke. Just like this was a joke and this too.
