Rethinking The Cowgirl

So I walked into a bar with Jenn Sterger ...

It's a great start to a story, isn't it? Better because it's true. I did this on Wednesday, meeting the famous "FSU Cowgirl" as part of ... well, I can't say much about it yet. Beyond the initial "wow" factor, the meeting taught me more about myself than I expected.

For those of you unfamiliar with Jenn's story, her and a couple friends dress up rather provocatively and go to football games. A crowd shot showed them and Brent Musberger said "Every red-blooded male just decided to sign up at FSU." Deadspin and other sites tried to find out who they were and did so through Facebook and MySpace. Then the media machine started. You can go to Deadspin and follow the saga.

When I found out I'd be meeting with Jenn for a project, my expectations were low. I hoped that the girl wouldn't be too fake, that she'd speak in complete sentences, and that she wouldn't annoy me too much. I figured the last thing the world needed was another Paris Hilton or Tara Reid, someone who'd been in the right place at the right time after meeting with the right plastic surgeon.

Then I met her.

The first thing I noticed is that she's stunning. I was doing a radio interview via phone when she first walked into the room and I unconsciously gave a very Keanuesque "whoa" in the middle of a sentence about Mark Prior's oblique. The pictures do not do her justice.

The second thing was that she was smart and funny. Throughout dinner, she was engaging, quick-witted, and even self-deprecating. The reactions she gets are amazing. As we went back to the hotel bar after dinner, I was walking about ten feet behind her, giving my a great vantage point to watch her almost literally stop a room. Heads turn. Men stared. Women stared. At another point, I was walking next to her into the bar and I noticed guys looking at her, then me. Some were thinking "What's she doing with HIM?" while others quickly looked away, figuring I could kick their ass or something.

I realized quickly that my thoughts of her had been dictated by the media, that the stereotype of the silicone celebrity doesn't hold in all cases. I think of myself as an open-minded guy, one not controlled by the media, but in this case, I was. Jenn Sterger is a girl that, looks aside, I'd want to hang out with. I just hope she feels the same.

And to think I read your column for information on men hurting their groins and obliques and what not...

I had the privilege to have lunch at the WH with Clinton but I've never had a meal with someone who was naked in Playboy - wanna trade?

Shame on Scott for telling us that we all want to be that putz Dan LeBatard - we all want to be you Will!

Congrats on Will to whatever is in his future that he starts hangin' with Playboy babes. I'd be lucky to go to a Long John Silvers with some skank out of Hustler's Beaver Hunt.

In regards to Another Tom, I think you make an excellent point. I would offer up that the thing I'm most sure of is that Clinton would have definitely chosen to have lunch with Jenn Sterger over you.

Will's piece mentioned one thing that I would like to discuss. I never used to like Brent Musberger, but he's really grown on me, as he seems to be one of the few announcers who likes to have good time. He always mentions the point spread and will discuss a lovely lady in the stands. I also have heard he enjoys the libations. In today's PC world of broadcasting, give me a Musberger over a company lackey anyday of the week.

Why am I suddenly humming Neil Young's "Cowgirl in the Sand"?

So Will ... does this mean we'll be seeing you dressing provocatively and showing up at FSU football games (with or without Jenn).

Neil Young ... man how good is he?

No FSU games for me, though I am a fan. Jenn graduated and NO ONE wants to see me dressed up like that. Seeing me and Jenn ... well, that's possible.

Oh, come on Will...I think you would enjoy a Seminole game or two with Jenn as your host...take it from one of the Seminole Nation, come down to Tally and enjoy a Lot 9 tailgate and you'll learn to love the Noles like we do...

Good write up on Jenn, I am glad you and the rest of the media finally get to see Jenn as we FSU fans and real life friends of Jenn have known about her for a long time now...she's the real deal, much more than just the gorgeous face on the internet, and we all know she will successful in whatever opportunities come her way...Swing by the LR when you get a chance!!

I think Jenn will be offering up "The Juice" injury-prevention videos, and Will be be doing the voiceovers. :-)

(and yes, Neil Young IS the man)

The 2 of you together look like a scene from one of those wacky Telemundo gamshows.
