Highlander! There Can Be Only One, Comedian Football Challenge


This year, SiriusXM’s The Ron and Fez Show and TheInterrobang.com are teaming up to bring you the first annual “Highlander: There Can Be Only ONE Comedian Football Challenge.  It’s the toughest, the strongest and the winningest comedians competing in a fight-to-the-finish NFL Football Survivor Pool.  They are fighting for pride, and to win our best prize yet — a once in a lifetime collector’s item:

A helmet signed by Joe Montana, Jim Kelly, Anthony Munoz, Tony Dorsett, Dwight Clark, Bruce Smith, Tony Gonzalez, Matt Stafford, Jim McMahon, Shaun Alexander, Chris Johnson, Bryant McKinnie, Ryan Grant, and Eddie George.

Every week through the NFL season, these 50 comedians will have to make just one pick to win that week’s game.  If their pick wins, they survive. If their team loses, they are eliminated, until there is….only one.

Check back each week to find out who drops off the map, and which pick destroyed them.  Tweet to them, root them on, tell them who they should pick all using the hashtag: #Highlander
