Mac Attack 02/12/13: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl Hannah Davis joined the show to discuss the release of the magazine, her boyfriend Derek Jeter, and Jim Celania managed to make her feel uncomfortable.
“I grew up in the Virgin Islands, in St. Thomas, and we didn’t have a professional football team. So I just decided to go with Baltimore, because I was hearing all the talk about Ray Lewis retiring and I thought that would be a great way for him to go out.”
She was not only a spectator during Super Bowl weekend, she also got some work on the field as she participated in one of the Celebrity games and she critiqued her individual performance.
“I scored a touchdown… And I really should have had two. I missed an open (pass), but I really should’ve had two touchdowns. I was kinda bummed… One wasn’t enough. I was very disappointed in myself.”
This Celebrity football game was not Hannah’s first athletic competition as she informed us she was actually quite an accomplished athlete growing up. “I played on the Caribbean Tennis Circuit. And then I also played on the Caribbean National Team for volleyball. So sports has always been a big part of my life. That’s why (being in) Sports Illustrated was such a big deal for me, because it’s something that I’ve wanted, as an athlete, my whole life.”
And just when things seemed to heading for a somewhat normal conclusion, the tardy cohost and self-proclaimed dirty old man, Jim Celania, entered the interview to lend his awkward contributions.
Jim: “I just got out of bed. I overslept for the first time in my lef. Are you in bed right now?”
Hannah: “Yeah, I am. I’m in bed. I’m talking to you from my bedroom.”
Jim: “Is your voice different when you’re in a prone position, or standing up?”
Hannah: “Oh my God… You are too much, Jim!”
