Daily Distraction: Watch Jason Sudeikis' Golden Globes acceptance speech for 'Ted Lasso'
He won the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy and accepted the award virtually in a hoodie
It used to be, my day at Columbus Alive would officially begin when I activated my key card (if I remembered it) at 62 E. Broad St., walked through the door, ascended the stairs, turned off the box fans aimed at the ever-growing wet spot on said stairs, then plopped down in front of a desktop computer that seemed like a lost relic from the "Dude, you're getting a Dell!" days.
Like many Americans, I shifted to a work-from-home regimen for the past year or so. Now, my day at Columbus Alive begins when I sit down at a desk about three feet from the bed in which I just slept. I turn on the lamp, switch on the space heater (chilly bedroom) and open the (much-improved!) laptop, but I can't get down to business until the final step in my work-from-home routine: flipping up the hood on my sweatshirt.
Hoodies are my go-to wardrobe items for comfy home life, which means they've also become my new work uniform. So on Sunday night, when Jason Sudeikis accepted his Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy for his titular role in "Ted Lasso," and did so in a hoodie... I, as the kids say, felt that.
I've previously expressed my love for "Ted Lasso," one of my favorite pandemic-era streaming shows (available on AppleTV+), and during Sudeikis' bumbling acceptance speech, he seemed to embody the humility and earnestness of fictional UK football coach Ted Lasso himself (albeit a less-polished version). Check out the rambling, endearing clip below, complete with tie-dyed hoodie and an urging from Don Cheadle to wrap it up.
