Your Big Chance

Mrs. Linklater has been having problems getting on the internet for the past ten days.  She's talked to AOL techs so many times -- a special shout out to "RONNIE" -- that she's been invited to their next office party. Okay, it's in India. But it's the thought that counts. 

Meanwhile, she still has to work.  And she is going to shoot a video in a couple of days with a former Super Bowl quarterback who worked yesterday's NFL Championship in Jacksonville. His initials are Troy Aikman. Back in the nineties he led his team to three wins in four years just like Tom Brady did yesterday. Bet you forgot. 

Yes, Mrs. L has a tough job getting sports celebrities to reveal their inner talent for smiling and eating snacks on camera, but somebody's got to do it.

So, as a way to take her journal pals on the set with her, she wonders if there are any questions you want her to ask him.  Yeah, like you people are going to take her offer seriously.  But if it isn't a really really stupid question she'll be happy to ask him.  She'll even tell you his answer. Anything for a journal entry.

She probably shouldn't hold her breath waiting to hear from you. 

If any of you watched the Super Bowl pre-game festivities on Fox and saw how hilarious he was dressed up as Mr. T, then you know Troy isn't all x's and o's.  He's got his comedy side.

No, really, he does.

My friend Clare has a "thing" for Mr. Aikman, from her days in Dallas. She would love to go with you and hold your drink or carry your newspaper or notes or whatever it is you carry.

Tough luck on the rotten assignment. Do you get to poke him in the ribs if he's reluctant to reveal his innermost snacking secrets?

mmmm Troy Aikman....
I'd like to know the size of his... sorry, my mind was in the gutter...
But I would like to know what he misses most about playing football (other than the money).  And I'd like to know what team he liked to play against the most.
Those are pretty stupid, huh?

I have a concussion-related question for Troy. What are the symptoms of post-concussive disorder? Mine started with an online journal.

I have a pretty red bicycle. I like to pet my fish.
