This is a regular series which attempts to combine my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities. Today's featured cards highlight teams that won last week to help their playoff drive.
The New York football Giants beat the Dallas Cowboys to win the NFC East and make the playoffs (the Cowboys will not make the playoffs). Representing the Giants is Christina Applegate, one of my all-time favorites. Last week, I bemoaned the fact that she was not wearing a Chiefs jersey in an ad, like her showmate Ed O'Neill did. Well, Applegate more than makes up for that by wearing the Giants jersey for her Celebrity Jersey Card debut. I know she is undersized for a DE, but I am sure she would wreak havoc on defense (I wouldn't mind being tackled by her). The best #78 I could find is Greg Bishop, an offensive lineman from the 90's. I'd much rather have Applegate on my team!
The San Francisco 49ers had a great season and secured the #2 seed with a win last weekend. Jim Harbaugh has done a remarkable job coaching them. Representing them today is Marisa Miller, known mostly for her modelling work. For her Celebrity Jersey Card, Miller models #21, worn by Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. I love Miller's old school look, but Applegate still gets my vote between these two.
