When did the Miss America Pageant introductions become auditions for a gig at the Laugh Factory? I just watched my TiVo recording of Saturday’s event, and there were a couple of surprising gems in the opening dance number, in which contestants faced the camera and introduced themselves in little one-line snippets. The best moments came with Miss Florida, Rachael Todd, and Miss Georgia, Emily Cook (neither pictured), who gave “shout outs” to Tim Tebow and Tiger Woods, respectively. (Link to video following the jump).
Todd held up a ringless hand and said “Hey Tim Tebow, I’m single!” (left unsaid: “… and don’t particularly care about a woman’s right to choose!”). And the blonde Cook snagged the best line, saying: “From the home of The Masters golf tournament, where I didn’t meet Tiger Woods, I’m Emily Cook, Miss Georgia.”
Check out the video right here. Comments on Tebow, Woods begin at the 1:35 mark.
Sydnee Waggoner, Miss Alaska, also had a pretty good line: “Born and raised in America’s snow globe, and no, I can’t see Russia from my house, I’m your Miss Alaska Sydnee Waggoner!”
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods is hoping that a little Love Boat action will melt the heart of wife Elin Nordegren, according to a report in the Chicago Sun Times. Woods, says the paper, has asked Nordegren to go off with him on a cruise on his yacht “Privacy,” once he’s done with sex rehab.
The only passengers on the ”second honeymoon” cruise would be the couple and the yacht’s eight-person crew. ”Tiger believes this will be the best way for he and Elin to really reconnect, attempt to save their marriage and get on with their lives,” the source said.
Elin Woods reportedly is leaning toward going.
Later that night, I had a horrific dream …
With Gilligan, the skipper, too, Tiger Woods, and his wife/
