Michael Strahan Makes Surprising Admission About The Greatest Pressure He Has Felt

Michael Strahan played 15 seasons for the New York Giants in lots of high-stakes situations, including two Super Bowls. But he told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Monday that co-hosting “Good Morning America” is a bigger pressure cooker.  “That is the hardest, most challenging job I’ve ever had,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end said, which you can see in the video below. “Football challenged me mentally and physically but this, just the overall pressure of it, you feel it a lot more than I ever felt on a football field.” Strahan said the gig at first was “more intimidating” than when he walked in to the Giants locker room for the first time.

Pete Davidson Gave Phony Fitness Advice To Alec Baldwin And It Worked

Pete Davidson says he got Alec Baldwin all pumped up ― with a lie. (Watch the interview above.) The “Saturday Night Live” comedian revealed on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday that he impressed Baldwin with his physique during a shirtless sketch when Baldwin was a guest on “SNL” several years ago.

Davidson’s fitness fib worked. He said Baldwin took up the exercise re...
