It’s gametime baby. All morning long I’ve been fired up about South Carolina’s fight for the SEC Championship against #1 ranked Auburn.
We scored our first touchdown!
The excitement was short lived. Everyone knows babies are innocent- we can’t hide how we truly feel.
What was so funny– despite the loss– daddy was still smiling for some reason.
I admit it. It took a couple days to accept it.
The BLONDES win big… the BRUNETTES gave it their best. Fellow Bru Carissa Maguire was not bitter after the heartbreaking loss saying it was a ‘great game in overtime.’ In the end the Blondes prevailed beating Team Brunette in O-T 26-20. The MVP goes to…. all of the wonderful ladies regardless if they sport the pink or blue. Together they raised more than $100,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s the kind of touchdowns… that touch lives. Way to go Blondes vs Brunettes 2010.

The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders and ESPN 980 hosted their calendar Premiere Party at Public Bar on 18th street downtown. In addition to performing the ladies also took part in a fashion show. Lots of sharpies were at work as the gals signed copies of their latest calendar, shot at the Paradisus Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic. Watch my clip below and see why this year’s covergirl Dawn is quite the Cinderella story. Related: Pre-order your Redskins Cheerleaders calendar
