Sudeikis is more than Ted Lasso. But the wit and wisdom of his greatest creation are still what the world needs right now. To celebrate Jason Sudeikis turning 47, here are ten perfect Lasso-isms.
Ted tends to drop a lot of pop-culture references when coaching the boys on AFC Richmond, and this is one of the few anyone around him might actually understand.
A typical Ted bit of advice: short, sweet, warm, humorous, and... on the mark.
Sometimes Ted gets personal... too personal.
Many of Ted's jokes are of the accidental variety, slip-ups, or nonsequiturs, but some, like this one, he's straight-up shooting for a laugh.
Ted delivers two jokes for the price of one here; we can all relate to not understanding what offside is and, yeah, the mob probably killed Kennedy.
Can't help but wonder if birthday boy Jason ad-libbed this joke wrapped in a joke. No way any Brits got it, and we're guessing that 9 out of 10 Americans had to look up Sue Grafton.
Ted is a man of folksy metaphors, and this one is as witty as it is informative.
Ted is learning the ins and outs of life in England and passing on essential information as only he can.
Funny, true, and tragic.
Hysterical... and accurate!
