The real ‘Colledge Experience’ (Football)

August 28, 2009

If playing in the NFL doesn’t work out for Daryn Colledge, he definitely has a future in TV.

The Green Bay Packers offensive lineman hosts a weekly online talk show called “The Colledge Experience,” in which he interviews teammates at different locations at Lambeau Field and broadcasts them on the team’s Web site.

Topics range from football to family to fun.

Colledge, of North Pole fame, is a natural behind the microphone, using his witty sense of humor to keep the interviews loose by making jokes and poking fun at his guests. By the end (about 10 minutes worth) you come away with a better understanding of the player interviewed – and Colledge himself.

No matter how well Colledge does behind a TV desk, he’ll likely stick with his Sunday job. The 27-year-old is entering his fourth season with the Packers. He is a staple of one of the league’s best offensive lines, having started 46 of 50 games including playoffs.

Better yet the 6-foot-4, 308-pound Alaskan has never missed a game in the NFL or at Boise State, playing in all 100.
