First, I do believe sports blogosphere favorite Erin Andrews has officially entered the B.S.-osphere. For those who might not have heard, in a recent interview the ESPN sideline reporter said she supposedly enjoys laying in bed and watching her beloved Gators play. And of course, bloggers everywhere are scurrying like ants on a sugar cube.
Like Yahoo! Sports’ Eamonn Brennan, I think this phenomenon is partly the bloggers’ fault. But now I also think Ms. Andrews is partly to blame. I think Ms. Andrews is getting to the point where she believes, and it might be true, that she can say anything about herself and people will believe it. Any mere utterance of her personal life, and she knows she will have bloggers running to their keyboards. Especially if she mentions her bedroom.
Oh, she so enjoys laying innocently in bed and viewing the exploits of Tim Tebow?
I call bullshit.
Erin Andrews is becoming just like those Playboy Playmates who claim “intelligence” is a turn-on. These women say things just to keep their core audience interested. Quick, how many Playmates are dating Noble Prize winners? How many are dating rock stars, athletes, or actors? If intelligence was really a turn-on, Stephen Hawking would have bed more women than Wilt Chamberlain.

Don’t make me have to drive up there with a few kegs of O’Douls and start my own party. Because I’ll do it.
Oh, and to those from the unmentionable school whom Princeton Review claims is the best party school in the nation:
