Countdown to Kickoff: 50 Days

As we continue on our daily countdown towards the 2007 season, we are now at 50. I have chosen funny man and USC alum Will Ferrell as the feature on this post...

Image Hosted by

This guy is one of the greatest performers in the history of TV and film. Ferrell, 39, graduated from USC in 1989 with a degree in Sports Information. His really really took off after joining Saturday Night Live in 1995. He immortalized characters like President George W. Bush, "Celebrity Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek, and Gene, the cowbell playing member of the Blue Oyster Cult. I can't forget about his movie career. He just knows how to make us laugh, whether he's playing race car driver Ricky Bobby (pictured above) in Talladega Nights, Frank the Tank in Old School, or Chazz in the Wedding Crashers (a USC Sports Talk favorite).

It won't be long before we see him on the sidelines of the Coliseum rooting for the best college football team in the land.

Fight On!
