How many hardcore sports people saw this coming? Yeah, I know, The Lovely Bride wasn't surprised at all, but she actually watches shows like "Live with Kelly and formerly Regis". But we don't.
According to Broadcasting and Cable magazine, that show will now be called "Live with Kelly and Michael". That's because former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan will take over the job left open by Regis Philbin on the morning talker.
No, we really never pictured Strahan as a all-purpose yuckster who relates well to women, but then again, we don't really know him that well.
Oh, apparently Strahan will keep his gig on FOX's NFL Studio show on Sunday's.
Here's a rather lengthy story from the New York Daily News RIGHT HERE
Alrighty then. Sure, we know Strahan isn't the first football player to make a jump like this. Heck, defensive meanie Alex Karras is better known as Webster's dad then as an all-pro defensive lineman for the Detroit Lions. So yeah, it does happen.
And sure, we've seen Strahan in his Subway commercials, he's sort of funny. In fact he's been rather successful as a commercial "Go-To" guy, maybe that's the reason he gets to now sit next to the perennially perky Kelly Ripa?
For those wondering, here's a clip from the Regis and Kelly version...
