Are You Ready for Some Football ... With Ryan?

8/16/2007 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan SeacrestThe NFL and Ryan Seacrest go together like Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

Nonetheless, word on the street is, the "Idol" ringmaster will handle pre-game and halftime hosting duties of the Super Bowl on Fox next February. Because nothing says manly man like a guy with frosted highlights. Seacrest out!

No halftime act has been named yet, but Clay Aiken would fit the bill nicely, no?

UPDATE: To be filed in the Who Knew? category, Ryan actually played high school football for the Dunwoody High School Wildcats in Atlanta. Ryan, as a strong safety, took his team all the way to the AAAA State Championship. Tackled by Seacrest-- good times!

What the heck is wrong with the NFL? Seacrest's only interest in football is to imitate the quarterback so he can put his hands under the centers rear end. Go back to KIIS FM Ryan. The NFL has enough problems.

I have never seen anyone more annoying with his over enunciation and how self absorbed he is - and he's not even goodlooking. What a joke - come out of the closet Ryan, everyone knows you're gay. This straight act you play is ridiculous.

Looks like the NFL is going powder puff with a gay host! Maybe Howard
Cosell will send down a lightning bolt!

Why does Ryan Seacrest keep getting HIRED for all these gigs????? It finally made sense when I heard he knew Merv Griffin. I live in LA used to work out with Ryan at same gym. Don't care if he is gay...but COME ON!!!! He is such a goofball.....it does give you hope that ANYONE can become rich and famous. I really wish they would take him off American Idol, won't listen to his radio show....the guy is ANNOYING. Football!!!! That's hilarious.
