Thomas DeCoud is hilarious. 

There is no other way to put it, and no other player I would rather meet and offer to sit and watch some Broken Lizards with than the Atlanta Falcons safety. 

Deadspin caught wind of a nice little game of "Meow" taking place on national TV. DeCoud was live on ESPN's SportsCenter Thursday to talk about something dealing with football, we think. 

We can't be sure because we were too engrossed in listening for all the "meows."

Deadspin has video of the hilarious game made popular by the movie Super Troopers, but you can also see it here. 

For those uninitiated, here is footage from the 2001 comedy Super Troopers

You can play along with DeCoud as you clearly hear him sneak in a bunch of meows into his talk of the Falcons defense. 

Really, outside Atlanta, this would have been a forgettable interview. It now lives on as one of the best exchanges in SportsCenter history. 

If you don't believe me, check out the 2:45 mark when DeCoud launches into a parade of "meows."

I can only hope that other athletes get in on the fun and start sneaking in some clever "meows" into interviews. 

This may make SportsCenter's usual programming all the more interesting.
