Question: Who portrays Terry Tate, office linebacker, in the new Reebok commercials? He looks like a player. Did he ever play football? If so, where? — Eddie C., Norcross, Ga.

Televisionary: Lester Speight, who goes by the name Rasta, was an all-American at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Md., before playing for the USFL's Baltimore Stars and the NFL's New York Giants. And I'll give him this: It may have been the ad route, but he found his own way to the Super Bowl just the same.
