Sue Bird has definitely stepped into an unfamiliar territory by getting Jason Sudeikis on her show. She was in for a ride as the actor and comedian made it his mantra to give her some hard truths. To begin with, Sue always thought that Jason was a KU alum. When she asked him about his days, he couldn’t help but stammer. He responded, “I wanna be honest with you. I didn’t actually go to school here. But I’m a life-long fan.” To this unexpected turn of events, Sue Bird quickly quipped, “I should’ve called Paul Rudd!”

It was a very funny take on what was just supposed to be a tour. And why not when the Ted Lasso star was in the episode? Later in the episode, they met with the Jayhawks and their head coach Bill Self. Surprisingly, Jason gave a very heartfelt pep talk to the boys before they ripped apart Sue Bird’s alma mater UConn. His touching speech involved, “If I would have been good enough for KU, I would’ve loved to come here. But you have fun because when you have a good time, we have a good time.”

One thing that Jason did ask for was to watch the match like a normal student would. Undeniably, Sue Bird took it to her heart. Sue and Jason both stood in the student section and cheered for their teams. Jason fitted right into the crowd as he played the drums with a Kansas student. All in all, both Sue and Jason had an amazing time as he checked off things from his lifelong student bucket-list.

Jason Sudeikis is unquestionably the most lovable person. His honesty and ability to make anything awkward only add to the adorable quotient. Nevertheless, Sue Bird’s UConn had to go back home with a defeat at the hands of Kansas. But, the crowd at Allen Fieldhouse surely had the time of their lives. So did Jason and Sue Bird.

“Spirit of life lies in expression”. As a boy-next-door growing up in the mystic vibes of Ajmer, I would often wonder about the towering ballers’ ability to forge unity for a common goal. Big guys watching each other’s back and creating brouhaha and belligerence for the glory was a tempting feeling.
