Jonathan Papelbon’s appearance on “College Gameday” was as silly as you would expect


Phillies closer and Mississippi State alum Jonathan Papelbon was a guest picker on ESPN’s “College Gameday” earlier today. It was about as silly as you would it expect it to be.

Papelbon showed up in a maroon suit and a bow tie with a cigar in his mouth. After picking Mississippi State to defeat Auburn, he brought a bulldog (the school’s nickname, in case you didn’t already know) up from under the desk. Hijinks ensued. Check out part of his appearance below and be sure to watch through to the end.

The dog looks thrilled.
