Two years ago, Yao starred in a Visa ad that also featured Yogi Berra. This time, his animated counterpart will have a role in "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass," an episode of The Simpsons that will follow the Patriots-Eagles game on Fox on Feb. 6.
The cartoon Yao joins Warren Sapp, Tom Brady, LeBron James and Michelle Kwan at Homer Simpson's Show Boating Academy, where Homer helps them choreograph their respective victory dances. ========================

The "Everyone Sucks But Me" bike was great. Didn't quite make up for TO not getting in the end zone tonight (I was betting on 'picks up a cell phone from under the goal post and calls Ray Lewis' myself), but it was something.
I'd attribute it to a momentary lapse in judgement. Regardless, it's obvious that this guy is probably getting canned in the next day or so, if he hasn't been already. UPDATE: And sure enough, Happy Trails to the headline writer!
