Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis Chop It Up With Chelsea FC in Seattle (Photos)


July 20, 2012

Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis are today’s kings of comedy, but the royal pair just had to take a pilgrimage to go see the kings of Europe.

Chelsea FC was in Seattle, Wash. for the first leg of its North American tour when the Hollywood funny men met up with a few of the Blues on Thursday night.

Frank Lampard, Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira and Petr Cech were on hand to greet the stars at the team’s hotel. The Chelsea players presented Ferrell and Galifianakis with personalized jerseys, while the actors completed the gift exchange with a signed St. Louis Rams helmet (we’re not sure what that was about).

Ferrell has been a loud and proud Chelsea fan for at least the last few years. Galifianakis’ allegiances are unknown, but it’s safe to say he’ll have soft spot in his heart for Chelsea.

For what it’s worth, Chelsea defeated the Seattle Sounders 4-2 in an action-packed friendly. Summer Eden Hazard scored in his unofficial Chelsea debut.
