It’s an all new episode of The Rich Eisen Podcast, coming to you from NFL headquarters in New York, featuring commissioner Roger Goodell and “Saturday Night Live” lead writer Seth Meyers.
Commissioner Goodell sits down with Rich to discuss some of the more important topics around the league just prior to the 2012 NFL Draft, Including his thoughts on the recent news surrounding Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and a federal investigation into alleged wire tapping. The commish also shares his thoughts on Saints’ players responsibility in the “bounty” scandal that rocked the Bayou. It’s not all serious, though, as Rich and the commisioner talk about Thursday’s draft and the dream that will be fulfilled for 26 athletes, who will be in attendance at Radio City Music Hall to hear the commissioner call their names.
Up next is big-time Steelers fan and hilarious lead writer of SNL, Seth Meyers, who took the short trek down from his 30 Rock office to sit down with Rich and chat about some of the NFL veterans who have appeared on SNL, including Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Seth and the cast are currently gearing up for Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning, who is scheduled to host the show May 5th. Even though his show is on break this week, there is no rest for the weary, as Meyers is headed on the road for a few comedy tour stops, including a Thursday night performance in Austin, Texas.
