Most fans (and media for that matter) rarely get to see Randy Moss up close and personal. A moody, brooding type of player, Moss doesn't often open up and let fans see his fun, playful side.
Those fans are in for a treat, thanks to a new show on ESPN called "The Hookup." It chronicles athletes and other celebrities hanging out for a day and getting to know the players on a personal level.
Moss' hookup was with rap legend Snoop Dogg and, aside from Snoop pleading over the air with Vikings coach Mike Tice to give him a shot to play wide receiver for the Vikings, the content of the show was quite serious.
Moss and Snoop Dogg discussed going through the legal system – Moss was in court as a youngster over a fight that left a man in a coma, while Snoop Dogg was acquitted on murder charges stemming from a gang shooting.
While both Moss and Snoop fawned over each other's achievements, the show provided a rare glimpse into the off-the-field side of Moss and, if you missed its debut Tuesday, you can bet ESPN will re-run the show (how many times have we seen Chris Moneymaker bluff Sam Farhah out of a pot?). For Moss fans, it's must-see TV. Check your local listings for the next time the show will run.
