Michael Strahan stopped by to promote his new sitcom, “Brothers,” and told the crew about a bunch the pranks – most of them involving testicles – his former Giant teammates used to play on each other, like taking photos of their balls with absent teammates cellphones and the time the center cut out the crotch of his uniform so Eli Manning would have to touch his balls on every snap.

Asked about his very-public divorce and alimony payments, Michael shrugged: “I was always happy because whatever I had to pay I had the money to do it.”

Michael then reveal that he had asked Nicole Murphy – Eddie’s ex-wife – to marry him: “Yeah we’re engaged.” He was nervous about her Hollywood lifestyle at first: “I said no, ’cause I’m not on that LA thing.” But when he went out to LA for his parents’ 52nd anniversary, he called her up and took her to dinner.

Now Michael makes sure to take his time in the bedroom: “You gotta make it right if you wanna get back…you better control it.” But he isn’t always able to last: “There’s those times when you gotta say, ‘Hey, I’m sorry.'”

Michael added that football groupies couldn’t compare to Nicole: “I stay away from it. I got the best right there.”
