What do you get when Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hosts a Zoom meeting with 90 players? The unexpected.
Taking part in the early stages of their all-virtual off-season program amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Carroll decided to liven things up on Thursday.
How so? By inviting the legendary Will Ferrell to crash the meeting. It was absolutely epic in every possible way.
Ferrell even decided to draw up some play concepts, one he called “Go flywheel, Kanye Starbust.” Ferrell was pretending to be new Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen and made sure to note that he has no desire to be called on as a blocker or play special teams.
An alum of Southern California, Ferrell obviously has a built-in relationship with Carroll, who coached the Trojans during a brilliant nine-year career.
We’re hopefully going to see more of this as the all-virtual off-season programs continue in the age of COVID-19. After all, these Hollywood elite are just like the rest of us in that they’re bored out of their minds at home. Ferrell obviously being the latest example.
