Football star does Broadway

NEW YORK (AP) - Michael Strahan has added another notch to his growing off-the-field resume - Broadway. The gap-toothed former football player made three short appearances at Wednesday's matinee of "Elf," the musical is based on the Will Ferrell film. Says the former athlete: "I was surprised at how nervous you get." Strahan played both a police officer and a Salvation Army Santa in the first act and appeared as himself in a scene in the second act asking Santa for a present. Strahan was named in September as Kelly Ripa's permanent co-host aboard the morning show "Live with Kelly and Michael." He got a huge round of applause at the curtain call and the cast gave him flowers. Fans can see a recap on Thursday's TV show.
