[ cheers and applause ] good to hear. are you guys excited thanksgiving is tomorrow? [ cheers and applause ] all right. remember, this is very important. remember to take some time out today to say good-bye to the hole in your belt that you're currently using. [ laughter ] this is interesting. today, not tomorrow, but today is the anniversary of the day george washington declared the first day of thanksgiving in 1789. of course, thanksgiving was very different back then. so one thing everybody was the racist uncle. [ laughter and applause ] very hard to stand out for your racism in 1789. i was surprised to hear this. according to reports, black friday is the busiest day of the year for gun sales. because there's nothing like
thanksgiving with the family to make you think, man -- [ laughter ] i need a gun. [ applause ] i need to get a gun. a new poll released today found that the top 2016 presidential candidates among republican voters is mitt romney. well, actually, it was -- [ sigh ] i don't know, mitt romney again? [ laughter and applause ] mitt romney? winter is officially under way. temperatures in parts of florida this week dropped to their lowest levels in 141 years. 141 years. it was so cold, people were cooking meth just for the warmth. [ laughter ] and also a little bit for the meth. [ laughter ] i mean, it's not like they didn't smoke it after they cooked it. [ laughter ] listen to this.
yesterday, this is amazing, yesterday passengers on a flight in siberia were delayed when temperatures dropped to 52 below, forcing them to get out and push the plane until it was free of the ice. even worse, even worse, the in-flight movie was "oceans 13." [ laughter ] tomorrow's not just thanksgiving. it's also the one-year anniversary of the release of the movie "frozen" and the 364-day anniversary of parents being over that song. how about you? [ cheers and applause ] how about you let it go, mad madeline?! "she's just a girl." i've had enough of this! enough of that song! [ laughter ] this is weird. according to "the new york times" map of the most googled thanksgiving recipes, the most searched-for dish in utah is funeral potatoes.
[ cheers ] which incidentally is what your grandma calls your grandpa. lovingly.

[ audience groans ] [ laughter and applause ] finally, anyone here watch "dancing with the stars"? well, last night alfonso ribeiro, famous for playing carlton on "the fresh prince of bel-air" won "dancing with the stars." [ cheers and applause ] meanwhile -- meanwhile, will smith sat on his couch and made $100 million. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band!
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are we doing, 8g band? good to see you guys. are you getting excited for thanksgiving over there? that's very good. fred, i love having you here. especially nice around this holiday, because i'm so thankful you're here. and one of the things i'm most thankful about is after years of knowing you, i still find out something new about you every day. and it's so wonderful. [ laughter ] the only thing that troubles me sometimes is, i do feel that people watching at home might feel like because of all your incredible accomplishments and your incredible stories, that you're making them up off the top of your head. [ laughter ] and when people bring this up to me, i assure them that, our friendship, you know, you would never lie to me. you would never do that. [ laughter ] but i heard -- you know, i heard, is it true that --
because president obama just pardoned a turkey today. i hear every year around thanksgiving you pardon an animal. [ laughter ] >> fred: i pardon the typewriter. which isn't quite an animal. >> seth: not at all. [ laughter ] >> fred: but typewriters come out around the holidays. people start writing their letters about their families and stuff for their christmas cards and stuff. you know, in order for them not to get destroyed, i just pardon them. you know, i just like -- [ laughter ] i'll just do one, you know, to go in the garbage. i'm like, this typewriter will not be thrown out. [ laughter ] >> seth: i see what you're saying. because obviously typewriters have become very obsolete. and i think probably more people are using computers to write those letters. >> fred: yeah. >> seth: do you go to their house and say you have to keep this? >> fred: no, i have a ceremony. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> fred: and i have to choose them. there's always typewriters out. their owners want them to be chosen. i'm like, hold on, hold on, i'm
gonna choose one for the year. [ laughter ] and i just sort of go through them. i just pick one and say, this is the one that is going to be pardoned for this year. >> seth: so where does that typewriter go once you pardon it? >> fred: there's a storage space that i keep on 34th street. [ laughter ] >> seth: so it just goes into storage? >> fred: it goes into storage. >> seth: oh, wow. it doesn't seem like much of a pardon. >> fred: well, it won't get destroyed. >> seth: that's a good point. and you do this every year? >> fred: yes, every year i do it. >> seth: how many years have you done it? >> fred: i wanna say, five? [ laughter ] >> seth: that's a great tradition, and i hope it continues. thank you so much for being here. >> fred: thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you guys, tomorrow is thanksgiving. and i've been saying this all week, i'm very excited about this, it's hard to get guests on thanksgiving, people spend time with their families. i've combined the problem with a solution. tomorrow, on the show, tomorrow night if you're watching, my brother and my parents are going to be my guests on the show. [ cheers and applause ] so you're with your family and

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: it is such a pleasure to see you, grandma. >> at my age, it's such a pleasure to see. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good. >> you know what i'm seeing right now? >> seth: what's that? >> the most beautiful little girl. >> seth: i'm a boy. >> i'm sorry, i thought you were a girl. because your hands feel like a bag of -- [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, well, very fair. >> what was your name again? >> seth: seth. >> seth, right.
what's that short for? >> seth: it's not short for anything. >> slethison? >> seth: nope. >> slethificus? >> seth: it's not short for anything. >> sleth? >> seth: why would i shorten it just by taking out the "l"? >> you know what i wish would lose an "l"? llamas. [ laughter ] why the extra the "l" llamas? it's not lamas. >> seth: all right. that's a good point. we're out here to talk about the first thanksgiving. grandma, what can you tell us about the first thanksgiving? >> my first thanksgiving was long ago. my parents dressed me as baby new year and put me in a jack-o'-lantern and filled with as mashed potatoes. back then people could only afford to celebrate one holiday a year so you had to mush them all together. [ laughter ] >> seth: i'm sorry, what? >> can i tell you something, seth? >> seth: sure. >> i do not care for this there. >> seth: i'm sorry to hear that. >> don't ever be sorry that you
can hear. you know what life would be like if you couldn't hear? you wouldn't be able to hear someone say, "i love you." or more importantly, "look out, he's right behind you!" [ laughter ] >> seth: so, real quick, let's get back on track. what can you tell us about the history of thanksgiving? >> thanksgiving started when people realized it would be fun to eat a bird that looks like your hand. [ laughter ] >> seth: what? >> gobble gobble. kiss the turkey. >> seth: i don't want to kiss the turkey. i really -- i really don't think that's right. >> what? i really don't think you're right. you know what is right? >> seth: what? >> thanksgiving started in 400 a.d., when jesus said, "don't you guys have something to say to me?" and everybody went, "thank you,
jesus." [ laughter ] >> seth: a few things wrong there. first, thanksgiving came way later. and jesus wasn't alive in 400 a.d. >> he was dead, and then he rose again. and that's the spirit of thanksgiving. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: no, no. it is definitely not. >> oh. it's not? >> seth: no. >> oh, i'm sorry. that's the spirit of april fool's day. >> seth: how can it be? >> because it's like this. oh, no, jesus is dead! no, i'm not. april fool's. [ laughter ] >> seth: that is not. that is not april fool's day. that's not what it's from. >> you know, it really doesn't matter how thanksgiving started. what matters is that you spend it with the people you love. hell, i celebrate thanksgiving even if it was the anniversary of the destruction of an indigenous people. [ laughter ] happy thanksgiving, seth. >> seth: happy thanksgiving,
grandma. >> can i say a quick hello to my family? >> seth: of course. >> happy thanksgiving james, teresa, chrystal, angela, lacy, jimmy, erin, zacharya, jasmine, christopher, ken konami, connie the one i don't care for, little baby james, jim, ben, and josh and sam. >> seth: we'll be right back with allison willams!

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: welcome! >> thank you! thank you for having me back. >> seth: this is so exciting, that you're doing this live show.
>> it's so crazy. >> seth: it's thrilling. it's thrilling. "sound of music" was thrilling last year. i'm so thrilled to watch this. but, i will say, i think there's all this buzz, everybody's waiting for "peter pan live." >> very aware. >> seth: you found out that there's another peter pan production trying to jump on the buzz train a little bit. >> yeah, i mean, seth, this has been intense. >> seth: it's tense, because someone's trying to jump on your hash tag. this is a problem in the digital generation. >> well here's what happens. they tell you, you're on this thing, here's the hashtag it's "peter pan live," but i feel responsible. i've been policing the hashtag a little bit, tracking it, searching it, seeing what's happening. seeing what the lost boys are doing when i'm not with them. >> seth: of course. >> i just have the most fomo of all-time. [ laughter ] and i started to see these posts of another peter pan, which is a live obviously 'cause it's a theatrical performance of peter pan in oakdale, long island, which is not far from us. >> seth: right. >> now i'm fully co-dependent and obsessed with their performance. >> seth: got you.
>> i saw their red carpet photos for opening night. i know toodles is and mrs. darling are dating. they're a beautiful couple. [ laughter ] >> seth: wow. >> yeah, toodles is played by a girl. it's like very -- i'm wrapped up in it. >> seth: are you worried that somebody might go see that "peter pan live?" >> i encourage people to see both. >> seth: see both, okay. gotcha. >> see what you think. the hooks are a little different. theirs are a little more geometrical, ours is round. >> seth: that's interesting. >> their starky is a veteran. they did it a couple of years ago. they've been posting on throwbacks. >> seth: lot of ways to do pan. i guess the message is there's a lot of ways to do pan. >> there's a lot of ways to do pan, exactly. >> seth: has it turned out to be harder than you thought? easier than you thought? exactly what you thought? >> it's been as hard as i thought. but thinking about it is very different than actually experiencing how hard it is. but i am so type "a," that i actually love how hard it is. i like working hard. which is like the least cool thing to say out loud. >> seth: it's very opposite peter pan. 'cause i don't think he ever says in the play, "you've got to work hard."
>> rule number one, work hard. that work ethic will get you everywhere when you grow up. it's not a cool thing. you wouldn't say that to the cool girls. you would be like, "hey, kids, guess what, i like to work hard." but i enjoy -- i enjoy running from a flight in rehersal if i hear a song going on, on another stage that i'm supposed to be at i'll take off my harness, run, rehearse the song and run back. i like working hard. when i'm not working hard, it's not great. >> seth: what happens when you are not working hard? 'cause i'm assuming when you're on a non-live show like "girls." like any tv show, there's down time. >> yeah, exactly. there are days off. i often try to do my friends jobs. i help, i mean -- >> seth: you'll take on other work? >> yes. i've written cover letters for job applications. i've helped people write articles. i've done research for people. i wrote an essay comparing brad womack, a former "batchelor" contestant to hamlet. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. that's really good. you get your ph.d. for that, or
you didn't? >> i did not. i did not. >> seth: i can't remember. [ laughter ] >> no, i'm in the process. it was on a big e-mail chain. no responses to my hamlet. >> seth: you -- i'm assuming you're working with professional broadway type dancers. >> oh, my gosh. >> seth: that has to be so intimidating. >> it was like a movie of like dancing broadway people walking into a room with broadway people. [ laughter ] but basically everyone was holding on to a bar, that i wouldn't be able to hold on to, and stretching in a way that i couldn't. >> seth: yeah. >> when they reach for something, they like, reach for something. [ laughter ] and i move in like the waspiest way possible. when i reach for something, one muscle moves and i get it. like, weak. >> seth: you're like elbow, wrist, finger, hand -- >> activate elbow, wrist. activate thumb and forefinger. [ laughter ] but it's like, you know, it's the least amount of effort possible. i have no, you know, inherent emotion in my movement. it's all very -- so i'm learning a lot. like apparently when you need to
point your toe, it involves like your hips and your ass. which is totally new to me. [ laughter ] anyway, i'm very motivated by them. they're so beautiful, too. they're like all incredibly beautiful. and have great muscular bodies. >> seth: yeah. and when they do their reaching, it's probably never for a doughnut. >> no. [ laughter ] if this were another dance. they're like, how are you? are you well? [ laughter ] are you in good body today? good voice? i didn't know that some one came up to me, they're like, "you're in good voice today." i'm like, what is that? [ laughter ] >> seth: my entire life i've never been in good voice. >> i don't think so either. i think they're lying to me. [ laughter ] it's amazing, these people have an incredible work ethic. they come in, they stretch, they warm up. it's a discipline. it makes me very into the idea of doing it myself. >> seth: you've learned a lot from them. obviously because peter pan, there are kids in the production. are they learning anything from you? >> it's more the other way around, seth. >> seth: okay. >> little john allen, who is 7 1/2 years old, he plays
michael, the smallest one with the teddy bear, and the last one to fly -- >> seth: mm-hmm. no spoilers, no spoilers. [ laughter ] >> sorry, okay sorry. he flies. >> seth: oh, gotcha. what really? [ laughter ] is this about the peanut butter? what is this play about? >> oh, my gosh. he has no idea. [ laughter ] he's 7 1/2. he came up to me the other day he's like, "allison," he holds my face with his hands when he talks to me, which is so lovely. but he's also weirdly, the temperature of the sun. [ laughter ] heat just radiates out of his hands. he was like, i just wish you'd say the "f" word less. i was like, i'm so disappointing to you, i'm so sorry. [ laughter ] peter pan is dropping four-letter words left and right. i'm look, okay, okay. recently i was on the jimmy fallon show and i was talking about eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white. the next day he comes over to me. he's like, "allison," again temperature of the sun. giving me a facial with his hands, and he was like, "i wish you'd eat wheat bread." [ laughter ] and i was like, but it's wheat bread!
he said, "listen, nutritionally, it's important." the next day i come in to work, there's a little wheat bread with organic peanut butter and jam from john, he wants me to eat better. i'm at craft services eating whatever, like bagels or whatever. he come up, he's like, "ah, ah, ah, healthy choices." [ laughter ] i'm like come on! but he's so cute. the other day apparently, he turned to his dad and he was like, "when this is over do you think we could go into the city and like, do a brunch with allison?" [ laughter ] and wear our costumes. that was his actual thing. he's like, "can we wear our costumes?" i was like, yeah, that won't be weird at all. [ laughter ] january in my peter pan costume outside in a restaurant, let's do that, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: i've got to meet this hot-handed little knucklehead. he's incredible. >> he's amazing. [ laughter ] >> seth: i want to have this kid's hands on my face. [ laughter ] >> it's amazing. i feel like he's a healer. he's like the dalai lama but he lives here, so he's a broadway kid instead. >> seth: you've got to eat less gluten my friend. >> you have celiac for real.
[ laughter ] >> seth: it was famously pointed out that you had dressed up like peter pan as a kid. were there other characters you were obsessed with as a kid? >> i feel like when you're a little girl, who's probably gonna become an actress. and maybe you guys have kids that probably are actor-like, they're a new person every day. you come home and you're like, who are you today? and i would say, i'm a town person named i'm celeste griswold. and i am not wealthy. and i'm a baker. and i sing all night for the rest of your night when you're trying to talk to each other. [ laughter ] so my parents would be like, all right. i was belle for like, seven months, i was ariel for a while. i was jasmine for the middriff part of the '90s. >> seth: got you. that was a good time to be jasmine. >> good time to be jasmine. not always good times to be jasmine. but that was a good time. but i was peter pan for a while too. mary poppins. i'd draw faces on balloons. and walk around with them, and they were my friends.
everything was fine. [ laughter ] everything was fine. >> seth: i'm sure the other kids were jealous that you were rolling with so many friends. >> yeah, that were balloons. [ laughter ] nothing sad about that at all. yeah. >> seth: this i like, too. you wrote letters to people. which is, again, seems so out of touch with all the nerdy stuff you've told us about yourself so far. >> it's really out of sync. >> seth: it's really out of sync. you wrote a letter to r.l. stine. >> i did, i did. >> seth: what i love is you have it framed. >> i do. but here's why. because i wrote him in 1996 when i was 8, and i got a response in 2014 from him. long story, but i found a floppy disk, which is like, i feel like indiana jones basically. [ laughter ] i found a floppy disk. i went on amazon and got a floppy disk drive and it was this treasure trove of horribly mis-spelled musings of an 8-year-old. and one of them was a letter that i'd written to r.l. stine 'cause he visited our classroom and did a reading.
and i sent it to my friends who were doing a project with him. and they kindly, and amazingly had him write a response to me. >> seth: so why don't -- give us a reading of your letter. >> well, okay. it starts with "dear curly." so for you not in the know was the name of the skeleton associated with the goosebumps series. r.l. stine is the author of the "goosebumps" series. >> seth: kind of opening with a joke. >> an inside joke. [ laughter ] it's to be like, i get it. >> seth: hey, i'm different than the other letters you're going to get. you're not going to wait 18 years to respond to this. >> you're going to respond instantly. i would like to know more about how r.l. stine wrote such a goosebump giving series. >> seth: another joke, like it. >> it is a great series. i love it. but it is so good, that sometimes i do get scared. r.l. stine, your books give me the creeps. i love them so much, that i have at least 20 goosebumps. i just loved it when you came to my school r.l. stine. did you visit daniel's class?
[ laughter ] >> seth: i don't know how he could have possibly been able to answer that. >> there are so many home rooms. how could he. i don't know. "i hope you did. another thing, can someone get a goosebumps book for free?" [ laughter ] >> seth: i think we know who this someone was gonna be. >> "inquiring for a friend." >> seth: yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] >> "i hope so. i have almost completed my collection of goose bumps." but collection is spelled "colleczion." >> seth: there's a "z" in it. there's a "z." >> yeah. "i've almost completed my colleczion of goosebumps. i do not like it when people call me names. in this case they called you r.u. slime. do you like it?" [ laughter ] "love, allison williams, age 8." >> seth: and then june 16th 2014. "dear 8-year-old allison, i'm afraid it took a long time for me to receive your letter." [ laughter ] "and an even longer time for me to answer it. i'm so glad 8-year-old allison enjoyed my book. sorry if they scared you a little. and i'm happy to know that you turned out okay despite those creepy books." [ laughter ] "congratulations on all your success.
scary best wishes, r.l. stine, age 70." >> aww. >> seth: that is adorable. >> i know, how nice is he? >> seth: that is adorable.

from sony that produces "jeopardy!." and i said, i'd like to do "sports jeopardy." and there was no response. and i go, maybe i have to have in question form. >> seth: right, yeah. >> then i thought well -- who is me hosting sports jeopardy? and then i got the response. and then they said, it's a great idea. >> seth: that's great. >> yeah. so i signed up for it. and crackle -- jerry seinfeld got his "comedian and cars" on crackle. >> seth: yeah "comedians and cars" on crackle. >> so it's great. >> seth: do you do it on the "jeopardy!" the set? >> yes. >> seth: so you do it on the actual "jeopardy!" set and trebek came by. alex trebek came by and did a cameo in your first episode? >> one of the first ones. so, he came by, he was on vacation, came by, and i said, your final "sports jeopardy" clue is, and then he hit the ding, and then i give it to you. i slipped out of the back. alex came through, and then lights come back on, and all of a sudden he goes, and your final sports jeopardy clue is, and he goes, don't "f" it up.
all of a sudden people were going, is that alex trebek saying don't "f" it up? [ laughter ] he walked out, i walked back in, and then that was it. that was the episode. >> seth: i love it. it's the trebek after dark that none of us ever see. [ laughter ] have you had any -- i would assume it's fun when people get stuff right. i would also think it's fun when people get things very wrong. have you had terrible answers? >> oh, my gosh. we had a category horse racing. it was triple crown winners, and it was triple crown winner retired to stud in nebraska. and the answer was supposed to be omaha. that was the name of the horse. and this poor guy, i knew he didn't have the answer and he goes, who is ron jeremy? [ laughter ] and i thought, okay, horse-like qualities, but not really -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, not a good answer. he tried to get in the ballpark. you got to appreciate that. >> yes, he did. [ applause ] >> seth: are you --
obviously you've been in sports for a long time. are you a sports trivia buff? is that something you take pride in? >> i used to be really, really bad. i would go to parties with my fiancee, now my wife, and i wouldn't let them leave unless you stumped me. so it would be like 2:00 in the morning and guys were drunk and i would be at the door and say, if you stump me with a trivia question you can leave. there would be this long line. [ laughter ] if you missed and i got it right you had to go back to the end of the line. i had girlfriends who hated me. >> seth: yeah. it's technically kidnapping in a weird way, i think. [ laughter ] i think that's what o.j. is in jail for now, he didn't let people leave a party. that's incredible. you know, you're doing this show, you love sports. >> yeah. >> seth: you did >> seth: you did "sportscenter", it was like the formative years of "sports center." >> yes i did. yes. >> seth: with oldermann. and you had quite a fan in bill murray. and you didn't know bill murray was a fan. >> no, we did not.
when we did "sports center", we sort of were cordoned off from the rest of the world and we didn't know who was watching. and i remember that, we were doing a pub crawl in new york. so an a to z pub crawl. and i run into bill murray at a place in the village and i said, billy, we're going to go on a pub crawl. do you want to go with us? he said, sure. so we're walking down the street. we go -- there's antique boutique. and he goes, hold on. he runs in, comes out with an orange tie. i said, what's this for? he said, didn't you say on "sports center" that the hardest thing about being coach of tennessee is finding those god awful orange ties? [ laughter ] >> seth: right, yeah. >> so, he said, put it on. we put it on -- i put it on. we went on the a to z pub crawl. we got to the letter l. >> seth: okay. >> so you have to find a bar for every letter, so it's l, and there's a street cleaner, the street sweeper, the machine is on. and bill goes, "what are you thinking?"
i go, "i don't know." am i thinking what you're thinking? he said, "let's steal this thing." [ laughter ] >> seth: was that what you were thinking? >> i wasn't thinking that. [ laughter ] i wasn't. i was thinking, let's get to the next bar. but i didn't even know the thing was running. and billy goes, let's get in it. so we -- he starts to climb up in the street cleaner. and this guy runs out and he's like, "what are you doing? i'll lose my job." he sees it's bill and then i think bill said, "don't worry. he said, can i just take it down the street a little bit." [ laughter ] we just inched along like a tank down the street. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's really cool. i would think if you got to hangout with bill murray, you would do something cooler than drive a street cleaner half a block. [ laughter ] >> yeah. well, that's bill. >> seth: you, like myself, you're going to be working tomorrow on thanksgiving. >> yeah. >> seth: you have a great game, seattle, san francisco, that's the late game tomorrow right, 8:00, is that what time? >> yes. >> seth: one of the nice things about your job is you've gotten
to work super bowls, and you've gotten to give people the lombardi trophy. and this is great to me, because you had to -- you had to give the mvp award to eli manning. but it turns out that sometimes it's harder to do that than you would think. >> it was terrible. [ laughter ] i come from a small town in ohio. and i don't tell anybody in my family i'm handing out the super bowl trophy, i want them to be surprised. so, it's really emotional for my family. this is going to be a great, great moment, a disney moment for my family. i get up there, and i'm getting ready to hand the mvp trophy to eli manning. can i have your piece of paper here? >> seth: yeah, yeah, sure. >> i'll show you. so, i have to read the sponsorships. he's getting a chevy corvette. beautiful black-on-black corvette. now, and the mvp of the super bowl, eli manning! you have just won that black chevy corvette over there, blah blah blah, i go through all the things. then i turn around and eli is gone from the podium. and i don't know where he is.
i'm in front of 100 million people. [ laughter ] i've got the keys in my hand. and i yell, eli! eli! here's your damn keys. drive home safely. i'm going, that's not the way it's supposed to be. >> seth: why did he run off? >> because he has a toyota sponsorship, he couldn't be seen with chevy. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, my goodness. >> the other problem was, one of the owners of the giants, you never give up the microphone. and i had to interview him, steve tisch is one of the owners. and you can see very closely, he wants to take the microphone from me. and you can see my hand pulling it back, and he's holding it like this. [ laughter ] and it's like when you do arm wrestling and nobody's moving. that's what it was. i'm going, give me the damn microphone. you never give up the microphone on stage. >> seth: the great thing about that, of course, the super bowl's over. the game's been won. you would think there's nobody left with stress.
and that's you. >> no. >> seth: you're the one who's like, if i do this, it's ruined. >> because of it um -- well, the steelers, your steelers, when they won the super bowl. and i didn't know -- because ben roethlisberger leads them down, santonio holmes in the corner of the endzone, i don't know who the mvp is. i go up on stage and i'm yelling to anybody, who is the mvp? well, ben roethlisberger gets up on stage, and i think ben thinks he's getting the mvp. i'm trying to console ben roethlisberger who just won the super bowl that you're not the mvp. >> seth: yeah. >> and it was santonio holmes. so it became this awkward moment where i kept making eye contact with ben roethlisberger. that he was going to be sad that i'm handing santonio holmes the mvp. ben, i have no consolation prize for you. [ laughter ] i'm sorry you won the super bowl. he's got the mvp. [ laughter ] >> seth: i think he's probably okay with that. >> i'm handing it out this year, and hopefully it's stress-free. [ laughter ] >> seth: and as a steelers fan hopefully it will be ben this time. >> it will not be to a steeler.
[ laughter ] >> seth: hopefully it will be. give me a break, all right. let me hold on to one thing. >> by the way, if you need seat fillers tomorrow for thanksgiving dinner, because i don't like my family, i would be happy to show up at yours. i would be more than happy. [ laughter ] >> seth: thank you so much. thank you so much. dan patrick, everyone!
