Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, and Parks and Rec are three classic TV series and the favorites of the Titans Tok team (based in Denver, CO). This begs the question, which character would these Titans players be if they were on these 3 shows?
Bud Adams – Frank (Danny Devito in Always Sunny): Frank Reynolds in Always Sunny, played by Danny DeVito, is questionably the father of the rest of the cast and a human piece of garbage whose issues with height and alcohol make him a disgusting human. Frank’s only redeeming quality is having money from his success as a businessman.
Enter Bud Adams, the late (RIP, Bud) owner of the Tennessee Titans. He was an oil guy and a Cherokee, so he basically robbed the earth his tribe protected and sold the oil from his Houston based businesses to get enough cash to buy a football team. He couldn’t play by the rules of existing leagues so he had to create his own league, the AFL, just to fit in.
Bud and Frank were both responsible for creating a life for their respective organizations, both played night crawlers (turning the lights off and pretending to be a worm with a guy in their 30’s) while in their 70’s, and both had fake hair that fell off on the dance floor. They both had friends because of their money and really got crazy with life by balancing out their beer and snortski’s.
Marcus Mariota – Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari in Parks and Rec): Marcus Mariota is the highly drafted Hawaiian QB of the Titans. Tom Haverford is the flashy Parks and Rec Employee who fails to perform at a high level and would never do anything that may get him dirty who flashes athleticism but is unable to put it all together.
Mariota played college football at the University of Oregon where he won the Heisman Trophy in 2014. He’s a very white collar QB who looks his best in warm weather practices with no defense on the field. He is fragile, having never started every game in a season, and talks the talk but can’t walk the walk.
Both Mariota and Ansari/Haverford look exotic race wise, but both are born in the United States so aren’t foreigners. Neither one has any African American in their blood according to Google, but if they were a quarter black no one would be surprised due to their dark complexion. In short, both are pretty high up there on the Tiger Woods list of people looking up what race their parents are.
Mike Mularkey – Toby Flenderson (The Office) : Former Titans head coach Mike Mularkey and Toby Flenderson, the HR guy from The Office, are basically the exact same person.They are nice and do their job very well, but at the end of the day are Beta’s so they can’t gain the respect of people who should respect them.
Both Mularkey and Toby make it clear that their balls are small by getting bullied around by morons who should not bully anyone, Michael Scott (Character played by Steve Carrell in The Office) and Clay Travis (Character played by Clay Travis in real life who pretends to be a super republican idiot). Don’t get me wrong, Michael Scott and Clay Travis are both excellent characters, but grown men should not let angry little midgets boss them around by constantly calling for them to lose their job.
Taylor Lewan – Fat Mac (Rob McElhenney in Always Sunny) – Here at Titans Tok we’re big fans of Taylor Lewan, the Pro Bowl Left Tackle who played college ball in Michigan. He’s a dude’s dude who is covered in tats and got arrested for kicking the shit out of an Ohio State fan at a bar. He’s constantly mixing it up on the field as a bad boy, and just like Fat Mac from Always Sunny, he models his fighting game after iconic action movies starring Sylvestor Stallone.
Fat Mac never stops eating, and uses his fat as a tool to be funnier. Fat people are funnier, and both Taylor Lewan and Fat Mac are huge dudes who are loud and outrageous.
P.S. – Fat Mac didn’t wear a fat suit. He actually gained like 50 pounds in the time between the end of season 6 and start of season 7 when he played the same character he had the whole time, just fat.
Harry Douglas – Councilman Jeremy Jamm (Parks and Rec) : Harry Douglas is a untalented wide receiver on the Tennessee Titans who most of the NFL hates as a cheap shot artist after acts like a clear cheap shot of Broncos’ CB Chris Harris Jr., which resulted in a sidelines brawl featuring Harry Douglas and Aqib Talib. In short he’s a filthy rat who wouldn’t be remembered as a football player if he wasn’t a dick.
Jeremy Jamm is the top enemy of Leslie Knope in Parks and Rec, and wouldn’t be remembered if he didn’t pull dirty moves or have a lame signature line, “You just got Jammed”. Councilman Jamm got drunk and tried to ruin the wedding of the main couple in the show, until Ron Swanson punched him in the face.
Both Harry Douglas and Jeremy Jamm are guys that everyone wants to punch in the face.
