Video: Will Broncos' Zane Beadles wear Ellen Degeneres's underwear at Super Bowl?
Ellen Degeneres wants the Broncos to win the Super Bowl -- but not because she's got a soft spot for Peyton Manning. Rather, she's rooting for Denver offensive lineman Zane Beadles, who's always wanted to dance with her. He got the chance during an appearance on her show yesterday that featured some amusingly low-key football talk, a $10,000 donation to his charity, the Zane Beadles Parade Foundation, and a special gift from her to him: giant orange boxer shorts with the slogan, "Ellen's got my blind side covered." Talk about a good luck charm. See the video below.
