Move over all you NFL players from The U, guys who played their college football at Hawaii are giving you a run for the money in the "let's see how ridiculous we can make our taped pregame introduction" department.
The war paint is presumably a nod to Sopoaga's Samoan heritage (or his college days in Hawaii), while the sticking out of the tongue is a homage to petulant 7-year-old girls everywhere.
Another interesting tidbit from the intro: Taylor Mays(notes), the rookie cornerback out of USC, named his high school instead of his college. By itself that's nothing special; plenty of players do it. But could it be that Mays still is harboring a grudge against his old coach Pete Carroll, who didn't draft him to Seattle?
