Head Goes All 'Splody!  
Okay, so this may have been posted elsewhere, I'm not on any McKenzie sites, but man...can you imagine?

Question: First-time writer. Long-time reader. Looking for scoop on Psych. Totally love that show. For real. -- Stef
Ausiello: This isn't scoop so much as it is a random tidbit from Super Bowl weekend: At NBC Universal's tailgate party, James Roday, Dule Hill, and Chris Meloni took on Burn Notice's Jeffrey Donovan, The O.C.'s Ben Mackenzie, and an unidentified executive's son in an impromptu game of pick-up touch football. Team Roday-Hill-Meloni prevailed by a score of 21-7. And because I know you'll ask, both teams kept their shirts on the entire game. "At one point shirts and skins were suggested," whispers my gridiron mole, "but it was too chilly."


There's a whole lotta hot for one field, you know? Man, that musta been fun to watch! Iz jeluss!

I saw that! That must have been fun to watch especially with Ben and Jeffrey on the same team. Too bad they were the big losers.

I'm not much of a McKenzie fan, but I did feel kinda let down that Michael Westen lost at...something. I choose to think of him as playing in his thick glasses with tape attached to the middle. What? Fiction isn't real?

Damn, that is a lot of hot in one pick up game.
Oh, to have been in person.......

Hi, you don't know me but I was going to go to my friends list and clicked on brandy's instead and saw this.

Just wanted to say how I wish I were that football....

You and me both, dude!

Psych goes out of its way to bring us some slash each week. It amuses me.
cianconnellcianconnell on February 13th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
I love how they embrace the slash. It's like they realize that it's impossible to have a show with two male leads where folks will find subtext no matter what, so they just bring it to the forefront.

What a fun cast, too!

Thanks to my recent foray into West Wing I now know who Dule Hill is, so I know precisely two of the guys mentioned...but hey, that's enough on its own! *fans self*

I adore Dule Hill. He is awesomely funny on Psych, BTW. Oh, and Jeffrey Donovan on Burn Notice is fantastic (and there's all sorts of backstory there with abusive daddy issues, and an ineffectual mother, who just kinda...denies it all, so good), plus? Adorable, and also very good at his job. Oh, plus, plus? He's forty, so closer to my age than most of the rest of my television crushes.

Now I thought Ben played HS football? He wasn't on the winning team?
Goodness, that area must have been sizzlin'! Would've warmed up our chilly atmosphere here in NYC.

I love how Shawn and Gus of course were on the same team! And Michael Westen? How cool is that?

How cool is it that connell is supplying my BMcK fix today!
cianconnellcianconnell on February 13th, 2009 11:37 pm (UTC)
Hee, it's actually pretty much the rest (except the executive's kid), who drew me to the story, but I figured y'all would appreciate it...for your own reasons (now, if only Taylor Kitsch had been involved...sigh).

Riggins and Ryan...Go, team, go!!!!

Aw dude, Chris Meloni vs. Ben? HOTTTTTTTT. Dammit, I want video!
cianconnellcianconnell on February 13th, 2009 11:32 pm (UTC)
Hee, and I'm all over Roday, Hill and Donovan...way more interesting to me!
