I've seen Spike TV's Pros vs. Joes a couple times. Love the concept.
Ordinary(ish) guys take on professional athletes in their sport. Handicapped, of course. Classic episode was Pacman Jones getting legitimately pissed when a nobody caught a touchdown on him in a game of flag football.
Tonight the series returns with a local flavor as former Euless Trinity High School defensive back Chase Weber takes on Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick. (I've talked to the show's producers, and rumors that dogs will be included in the events are wholly untrue.)
Weber, who played at Colorado State, was named to Trinity's All-Decade team.
Weber, now a personal trainer and TV production assistant living in Los Angeles, returned to Trinity for on July 17 for a one-day camp.
