ESPN NFL show goes crazy with ‘The Princess Bride’ references (Video)
Last week, the hosts of ESPN’s “NFL Kickoff” show decided to try to work in as many references to “The Princess Bride” into one episode as they possibly could. Buzzfeed put together a video featuring several of the references, though host Trey Wingo says they missed a few.
Yes, that’s Wingo, Mark Schlereth, and Tedy Bruschi running as many references to the classic movie as they could imagine. The Cliffs of Insanity, storming the castle, corners of an unusual size, inconceivable, only mostly dead … it was brilliant. We asked Wingo about the inspiration for the references:
@lbsports all three of us love that movie. that was it, seriously

Whatever the reason, the result was our pleasure. Well done fellas, well done.
I’d offer more commentary, but I was not hired for my brains.
