EVAN LONGORIA AT BOB HOPE CLASSIC (we are pulling the video until we can figure out how to disable the annoying as H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS autoplay)

Above is Evan Longoria being interviewed following his first round 78 at the Bob Hope Classic. An interview in which he admits he has never seen the show on which his partner (Jeffery Donovan, Burn Notice) stars, and that he is jumping on the Steelers bandwagon in the Super Bowl. We also learn that Dirtbag is either a lot taller than we thought or the cameraman was a Hobbit.
