7

While on "Inside the Actors' Studio", Ed O'Neill revealed how he was cut on July 21, 1969, after failing to make the team as an undrafted FA DE out of Youngstown State. Poor Ed had "some" competition. The team has just drafted L.C. Greenwood and a certain Joe Greene. If the date seems familiar, it should: Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon that day. For those younger fans, Ed is the luckiest old fart on TV these days, he's Sofia Vergara's husband "Yay" on Modern Family.
