Sam Gordon's the coolest. After rising to fame for dominating a boys' football league as her team's quarterback, the 9-year-old went on NFL GameDay to have her game tape broken down by Steve Mariucci, Rich Eisen, Warren Sapp, and Marshall Faulk.

Sam was having the time of her life, pretty much.

Her best quote? When they asked if she liked defense or offense best, Sam said defense, "because I'm the smallest one out there, plus I'm a girl and I'm tackling all the biggest guys." What do the guys say when she tackles them? "They don't say anything — they kind of just get up and walk away."


Here's the video of her whole appearance. She's born for the spotlight.
