I had a bunch of morons behind me screaming "Erin Andrews! OMG!"
Slightly Off Topic--Charissa Thompson at EMU game
Plus one just for your screen name.
Even if she borrowed make-up from Bozo the Clown, I have to believe she would still be mighty fine looking. She has my vote as a sideline reporter for UM games.
I haven't seen her on TV yet this year, but she's one of those women that looks 1000x hotter with brown hair, and yet usually has it dyed blond because I guess that's what chicks on TV all think they have to be.
It's the thing to do now. When this one girl I know had brown hair, she was probably the hottest girl I had ever seen. She was at least a 9. Then she decided to dye her hair blond and went down to a meh a 7. Bad decision.
In my world "pretty goodish looking" translates to "I'd still do her." And really, is that all that matters?
I'd still do her.
Nice use of "I was nonplussed..." without being in violation of the rule.
he was using "nonplussed" as a less harsh-sounding way to say he was negged.
For example, "Steve was nonplussed for complaining about MGoPoints"
and I wouldn't mind saying to her "should I call you for breakfast, or just nudge you?"
I had a similar experience when I was at the College World Series. I was waiting to interview a coach, standing next to Erin Andrews, and thought she looked pretty ordinary even with makeup and wardrobe all dolled up.
There was excellent use of redundancy ("Over several many beers...") in this post. The ensuing run on sentence was also a nice touch.
No sarcasm is intended. It flys on a Friday night, I believe.
Everyone has spent a semester at the School of Redundancy School at some point in their life. Free pass Friday gets you off the hook.
For the record, Erin Andrews couldn't carry Charissa Thompson's lunch. I'm just sayin...
I'm not a makeup artist, but I know a thing or two about the stuff, and I have some friends who've worked at cable networks.
The thing is, when you do makeup for TV, it can be really different from what a woman would normally do if she were going to a party or something. You can use makeup to contour your face - so to make your nose look thinner, you could use a stripe of lighter colored makeup down the middle. This might look really natural on TV and kinda funky in person.
Also, if you are being filmed from a distance, you might use makeup to make some of your features look stronger (bright lipstick, lots of eye makeup), and that looks really strange up close. This is a good example of how makeup can distort a person's appearance: http://z.about.com/d/dance/1/5/Z/2/-/-/before-after.jpg
One of my close friends used to work at CNN, and she said they would absolutely cake makeup onto people before they went on air, and often that's not the best look in person.
... and now everyone who read this post is dying of boredom.
My wife actually noticed the same thing for our wedding. She almost never wears makeup, but the person at our wedding really caked it on her because of the photos and video. She said it was because the camera tends to strip away quite a bit of detail in outdoor pictures, and so she had to accentuate certain areas so that they would still be present in the photos. After looking at the results, I kind of agree - my wife looked really different to me in person, but in the photos she looks just like she does most days, save with a bit more color. And yes, even I'm bored with this post now...
Asprin in, and I am waiting for some McDonald's grease so i can get the pre-game party started.
A case of blue wins for best reason posted.
How women in sports (or a debate thereof) is a welcome change from time to time.
But attempting to split the announcers 50/50 men/women for football is a bit ridiculous.
OK, here we go:
And since you mentioned her (not sure why???), here's Mary Sue Coleman:
Hmmm, not my type, but whatever. Much better, though than Donna Shalala:
Or her BFF, Janet Reno:
Just watched the replay of the Big Ten Tailgate show--which is getting worse by the way. Last year it showcased each campus scene in an interesting and funny way. This year it is lame humor.
Anyway, they said she is out for the week with some sort of foot injury.
Charissa Thompson is not short changing anyone.
