Clayton Kershaw tells Zooey Deschanel he loves her in ‘New Girl’ cameo

Big League Stew

At the risk of offending the three hipsters who read this blog, I'm going to admit that I don't get really *get* Zooey Deschanel and thus, I've never really given her FOX sitcom "New Girl" a chance. Honestly, I just can't get over the iPhone commercial where she asks Siri if it's raining instead of just looking out a window. C'mon.

Clayton Kershaw, however, loooooooooves Zooey Deschanel. Or more specifically, Jess, her character on "New Girl." He says so in the clip above. "New Girl" gets the honor of the big Super Bowl lead-in on Sunday and consequently it has put together a star-studded episode that features a cameo from Kershaw as well as some dude named Prince.

Kershaw strikes out with Jess in the clip above, but he didn't seem to be trying that hard. He still had his wedding ring on. Oops. (Yes, he's happily married in real life.)

Let's forget about Zooey Deschanel for a second. Anybody else really want to see Prince play ping-pong against Clayton Kershaw now? If Prince is as good at ping-pong as he is at basketball, it would be quite a match. Put that on after the Super Bowl.
