I begged and begged OMDQ to let me break the news on this site first, but I gave him my word that I wouldn't say anything. Brian has pulled ofd one of the greatest moves by a Blogger ever. He scored and interview with the most searched individual on AA this past Friday over the phone while Erin Andrews was in Boston. Here are a few of my favorite quotes......
"To be honest with you, I think guys would like to see me in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt and no makeup."Many kudos to OMDQ for making the effort and having the cojones to ask for a few minutes from Ms. Andrews. It seems like our weekend editor here at AA has a knack for pulling these convos with some of the "best" Sideline Reporters out there (he interviewed NESN's Tina Cervasio last month).....if he hunts down Jill Arrington, I will lose my s**t.
"I’m so excited because I get to wear a baseball hat the whole game and just throw my hair in a pony tail. To be honest with you, I would wear my hair in a pony tail and wear no makeup, but let’s think about it: when people go to their jobs, when they go to an office, they don’t wear jeans and a ratty T-shirt and no makeup"
"I’ve learned very quickly in this industry that you have to develop a very, very thick skin and if you don’t, you’re not gonna succeed. I remember one of the first times I ever saw something on the Internet that was written about me I ran out into my parents’ living room and I started to cry. Somebody had written about the size of my nose and that I needed a nose job."
"Every little thing I do, whether it’s eating a sandwich to you know, anything, it’s just all over, or who I’m talking to on the sidelines so that must mean I’m dating them, who I’m having a drink with at the bar, so that must mean I’m dating him, it’s turned into, it’s turned into almost like a mockery, so I’ve stayed away from it."
"To be honest with you, I don’t find myself to be a household name or a really big deal. I don’t. That’s why I think it’s funny when people call or ask to do interviews, because the way I look at myself is kind of a big nerd."
For the rest of the 3,500 word interview head over to One More Dying Quail immediately.
