Michael Strahan Predicts Who Will Make It to the Super Bowl
Former NFL player and Live! With Kelly and Michael host Michael Strahan phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about hosting the morning show and revealed who he thinks will make it to the Super Bowl this year.
“For our show, we like to keep it easy and light and funny,” says Michael. And to do so, the former New York Giants player reveals they really don’t plan much of what they’re going to talk about at the top of the show.
“Literally, I walk in and Kelly [Ripa's] in the makeup chair and I give her a kiss and say, ‘Good morning’ … and really the first time we talk is out there at the desk and it makes it fun for us because my biggest fear when I got the job was after three days I’m going to run out of things to talk about and for a strange reason you don’t.”
And considering he is now a co-host on a successful morning show, the former pro is getting to do all kinds of new things in preparation for the show, like attend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Michael jokes he didn’t “necessarily get a hall pass” from his fiancée Nicole Murphy, “but I mentioned it about a month before the show and she gave me a look like, ‘You’re not going to that are you?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh boy, I don’t know they asked me?’ But then the day of I just decided to go and let her find out about it after … It was research for the show, you know?”
So who does Strahan think will make it to the Super Bowl this year?
“Right now the best guess for me would be … the Seattle Seahawks and … the Denver Broncos. They look like the two toughest teams in the league as long as those teams stay healthy. And Seahawks are getting a lot of guys back from injury and yet they’ve been able to maintain a great record and Denver is kind of just that team that looks unstoppable right now.”
