Anthony Siragusa was born in Kenilworth, New Jersey on May 14, 1967. He attended Kenilworth's David Brearley High School and played both defensive lineman and kicker on the football team. He also captured a state championship in wrestling. Siragusa went on to play football at the University of Pittsburgh but went undrafted. He played seven seasons with the Colts before joining the fearsome Ravens. Baltimore won Super Bowl XXXV in a 34-7 annihilation of the New York Giants, with the only points allowed coming on a kickoff return. Linebacker Ray Lewis became one of the few defensive players to win a Super Bowl MVP, but the award could easily have gone to the entire defense for their stingy play. After retiring from football, Siragusa became known for his shoot-from-the-hip commentary and witty banter with in-booth broadcasters Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston on FOX's football coverage. Johnston played against Siragusa as fullback with the Dallas Cowboys where he earned the nickname "Moose," setting up a tailor-made tandem of "Goose and Moose." Siragusa also honed his acting chops with a turn as Ukrainian gangster Kostya Novotny in the Spike Lee film, "25th Hour" (2002), as well as a recurring role as Frankie Cortese on "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007). Siragusa clearly preferred being himself in front of the camera, and subsequently became the host of "Man Caves" (DIY Network, 2007-). In 2012, he also became a published author with Goose: The Outrageous Life and Times of a Football Guy. Tony Siragusa died on June 22, 2022 at the age of 55.
