Tracy Morgan spiced up the Cowboys-Giants game on Monday with the silly claim that Cowboys Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett is her real father. (Watch the videos below.)
Morgan, appearing on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli,” aka the “ManningCast,” bragged about his speed as a young athlete.
“I got that from my dad, Tony Dorsett,” he said of the fleet running back who played in the 1970s and 1980s. “I know that’s my biological dad, Tony Dorsett .”
When retired QB brothers Eli and Peyton Manning showed Dorsett highlights, Morgan shouted, “There you are daddy. Father! Father!”
When asked if Dorsett knew, the former “SNL” star said yes.
“He was dating my mom and he was driving a white van,” Morgan said. “He sold fish out of the back of that van.”
Dorsett, now 68, was clearly amused by the twisted scream.
Morgan also noted that Herschel Walker is his third cousin and took a swipe at Peyton Manning. He asked the great quarterback what it was like playing against Giants star linebacker Lawrence Taylor.
Peyton replied, “LT’s rookie year was ’82. I was 6. (It was actually 1981, but you get the idea.)
Tony Dorsett can’t argue with that.
