There aren't a whole lot of Bowl Games worth watching this season, so anything they can do to get viewers is a positive. While the Humanitarian Bowl struggles to sell tickets, the Las Vegas Bowl has instantly become more popular with the hire of an Anthem singer. The one, the only, David Hasselhoff! From the Las Vegas Sun via SbB....
Davis Hasselhoff will perform the National Anthem at Saturday's Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl.Wait, it's Davis Hasselhoff??? I take it back....that was a bad hire.
Yes, you read that correctly.
David "The Hoff" Hasselhoff, best known for his roles as Michael Knight in the original "Knight Rider" and Mitch Buchannon in "Baywatch," will serenade the sold-out Sam Boyd Stadium crowd this weekend with his rendition of the National Anthem.
BYU and Arizona fans can hope it is as catchy as Hasselhoff's most recent single, "Jump in My Car," which topped European charts with more than 6 million downloads.
Organizers of the 17th Las Vegas Bowl announced their selection Monday morning.
To the Bowl Committee's credit, the Guinness Book of World Records does list "The Hoff" as the "most watched TV star in the world."
