Not Ready For Prime Time

Deion Sanders was an amazing talent on the grid iron and to a lesser extent on the diamond. He doesn't seem to have that magic touch elsewhere in his life.

Tonight, I caught the very end of his family losing to the Ed McMahon family on Celebrity Family Feud. I remembered another time when Neon failed to sparkle.

Someone thought it would be a good idea to have him host the 2002 Miss USA pageant.

Please note the poor, poor attempt at dialogue, rivaling only his attempts at making a tackle on the corner during his playing career in therms of ugliness.

The fake inflection. The downright awkwardness. The ridiculous suit jacket. The shear beauty of it all.

Here's to you, Prime Time.
