But he lasted just one day…

It has been a busy week for Lasso (played by actor Jason Sudeikis) after he took a seflie with Tim Howard on Wednesday, then NBC announced his appointment on Thursday. Watch the video to see how things went for Texas’ second most famous soccer son (Clint Dempsey, obviously, is first) as he cut his teeth in the world of television.
