Sportscaster Rich Eisen pays off debt with Steel Panther, Jerry Cantrell

Posted by on January 14, 2017

We’re in our second week of playoff football, which means that if you played fantasy football this past season, you’re either basking in the glow of victory or licking your wounds from the agony of defeat. In addition to sweet, sweet cash and bragging rights, there are sometimes non-monetary bets. That’s where NFL analyst and sports show host Rich Eisen comes in. He was in a fantasy league with Alice in Chains, and Jerry Cantrell and him had a bet that Eisen apparently lost. Had Cantrell lost, he would’ve had to sing a song of Rich’s choosing, but he won, and Eisen held up his end of the deal by appearing as Steel Panther’s Lexxi Foxx and hosting his entire show in Foxx’s getup.

It wasn’t just a wig tight purple pants, however. Eisen had his nails painted, Cantrell gave him some rings and bracelets, and he even had laminates from the likes of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse and Mastodon. It’s kind of funny to hear Eisen say he knows who Mastodon is after a pause where he’s trying to read their logo. Good for him for being such a good sport. 

He even walked around the AT&T afterwards building getting a coffee order in full Foxx regalia.
