We conclude our semi-official NFL Draft week with another appearance by one of our favorite pro footballer/pitchmen: Alex Karras. Before Peyton Manning was in every other ad break in any given sporting event, the Detroit Lions Pro Bowl DT carved out a pretty good commercial resume even as he built up his acting career.
I didn't know Alex Karras did commercials for Faygo Redpop. I didn't even know Faygo did commercials for Faygo Redpop. I must have grown up in the post-glory years of the Faygo empire. And, yes, it is Redpop--one word.
