Since retiring from football earlier this year, Jerod Mayo has apparently been taking up new hobbies, no matter how different the skills may be from sports. On Wednesday night, Jerod flaunted his polished new way to pass the time in front of a crowd: conducting.
Jerod led the Boston Pop Orchestra for a rendition of "Sleigh Ride" like only a Patriot could. The performance was part of "A Company Christmas at Pops," a fundraising gala celebrating the relationship between the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the city's businesses, and it's safe to say Jerod's leadership, poise and flare on stage was a highlight of the night.
From the second he stepped on stage in his conducting debut, Jerod was the definition of professionalism. He tackled the lively Christmas classic with ease, waving his arms to the tempo like he was a seasoned veteran of the Boston Pops. Jerod's style even garnered a few laughs from the crowd.
The Patriots have stepped up and done their job when asked to join the Pops in the past. Julian Edelman performed with the orchestra last fall, and it seems Jerod may have studied his former teammate's work. Neither Julian nor Jerod disappointed in their conducting debuts. Consider the newest song on Patriots Nation's soundtrack.
The entire performance is worth a watch. Check out Jerod's debut with the Boston Pops Orchestra in all its glory in the video below.
