Of course, the big man was a good sport as co-host Craig Carton, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former NFL coach Bill Cowher, Roastmaster Jeff Garlin and a whole host of A-list personalities and comedians took jabs at him at the packed Waldorf Astoria grand ballroom.

Among the best moments, as passed along by the Friars Club:

— Gov. Christie announced “that in 2016 he would run for President… Of the Super Bowl Selection Committee.”

— Comedian Jeff Ross later said Christie should walk — not run — for President, adding he’d be “a round President in an Oval Office.”

— Rich Eisen of the NFL Network said Boomer is “starting to look like Phillip Seymour Hoffman with less muscle tone.”

— Former VH1 host Carrie Keagan said Boomer was no Tom Brady. Boomer replied “and you’re no Giselle!”

— Comedian Jim Norton: “Roasting Boomer before the Super Bowl is like roasting Paris Hilton before a spelling bee.”

— Norton also said Boomer’s noggin is so gigantic that he’s the “only athlete that looks like his own bobble head.”
