The professional American football league, NFL, meanwhile, just kicked off its new season on Thursday night with a game between the Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos, which got delayed due to a lightning storm near Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Ryan Seacrest, who is going to host NBC's "The Million Second Quiz" this fall, appeared on the field in Denver as part of the network's coverage.
The audience was apparently not glad to see him as they booed the "American Idol" host. Seacrest, however, seemed to be unfazed by it as he continued introducing the game by saying, "I only know of one other countdown that might be as big as this one. America is ready for 17 weeks of excitement, followed by the drama of the playoffs, all culminating in New York at the Super Bowl!" He managed to pump up the crowd's spirit with his little speech as the spectators cheered for the game.
