Oh Jay, look how far you come. We remember the Vandy days of hanging out with you at Sportsman’s and even post college when you’d show up at weddings ready to play (see below). Now you’re dating Kristin Cavallari!! If only we’d followed through and you’d actually given us that signed football that we could now sell on ebay. Nevertheless, we love you Jay! You will always be a Commodore in our hearts (but please stay away from Speidi).

Ahh football season in the South. We don’t care if you’re so girlie you exercise in high heels, you can’t help but love a little SEC football. However, we are only one weekend in, and we have already noticed a little something we’d like to warn against. Ladies, in your best interest, it’s time to ask yourself, “am I being a football-lover pretender to attract men?” Because while we get the strategy, as soon as you Down, Set, Hut you are as uncovered as Jerry Rice (we Googled famous wide receivers – sorry if that doesn’t make sense). It is just not cool. It’s way too obvious, and guys don’t care! They just want you to not complain about how it’s hot and you wanna go home. If you are a legit fan (and we assume none of you reading this blog are), more power to you, but if you are just feeling the urge to fabricate, just put on something cute and bring the Nugget Tray.

Well, the Olympics are here again and we know what that means. The Today Show has officially started their ad nauseum coverage. Ugh. This is the second elaney Olympics, and the first one was in the time period in which we still had a little pride left and didn’t leave it all out on the cyberspace table. (During the early phases of blogging, we worried about what our co-workers would think, what our pastor would think, and what potential suitors were thinking.*) So you might not know that…we kind of hate the Olympics. Is that horrible, yes? Of course. But it’s just soooo much…and we don’t like TV to be interrupted. We like un-interrupted programming. So, how do you feel? Are Valentines and the snow day the best part of your weekend? Or…do you l-u-v the Olympics (and Bode Miller)?
*The only thing we actually worried about

YouTube has them all up to watch and vote. We like the Dodge Charger’s “Man’s Last Stand,” but the Betty White Snickers commercial is getting a lot of press. What’s your fav?

Reader Ace: “Who’s doing the Superbowl halftime show? Is that Billy Joel?”
elaney: “The Who sings Teenage Wasteland?! I thought that was sung by a teenybopper. You know, ‘her name is Noel…’”
Disgusted guy in a black t-shirt that looked like he knew a lot about music: “That’s Teenage Dirtbag.”
Male Reader: “elaney, who are you cheering for?”
elaney: “Well, it was really a decision between Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson (married to Colt’s player Hank Baskett) and Kim Kardashian (dates Reggie Bush). I’m more of a Khloe fan, so I I decided to root for the Colts.
Male Reader (blank expression then pregnant pause): “Don’t ever tell another guy what you just told me.”
Reader Melby: “I want to buy bottles of Drew Brees tears.”
