Confessions of a Cowgirl (cont.)

More complicated than friendship is dating, which I have definitely put on the backburner. I've had countless marriage proposals (all in jest I am sure) on Facebook and Myspace. How successful a relationship can you find on the Internet?
Believe me, I'm flattered. But, really, why all the fuss? I'm still a normal college girl. I wake up late for class, fight for parking spaces, and spend way too much time watching ESPN. Honestly, if you walked past me at school, you probably wouldn't look twice. I go to school with some of the most gorgeous girls you will ever see in your life. To even be placed among their ranks is an honor in itself.
With notoriety comes a price. Sometimes you find out that people you thought were your friends really aren't, and that some people want to be your friend for reasons other than getting to know you as a person, if you know what I mean. People have tried to use me for my connections or to get ahead, while tearing me down behind my back. I know who my real friends are and who will still be there if and when all this ends.
I know what you are thinking: enough with this sappy crap. This is a dude's domain, this is SI.com. Think again, buddy. I'm more than a nice pair of "boots" on a sideline.
I will go head-to-head with your knowledge of news, current events, entertainment or especially my passion: sports. I am no expert, nor do I claim to be one, but I can hang with the best of you out there. So I hope you don't mind sharing a sports bar or locker room with a female, fellas, because I got news for you: this Cowgirl is here to stay.
