We've seen the good (Chris Leak), the bad (American Idol contestant singing Don't Cha) and the ugly (the Chargers' collapse against the Pats) since the start of the year.
Submit a comment or question for Jenn.
Jenn, what are your thoughts on Florida winning the National Championship? As a UF alumni, I know we should feel good about the championship coming back to the state of Florida but let's be honest, Florida fans are already a very smug bunch. Now that they have won both the basketball and football championships in the same year, I don't know how they'll be able to get their big heads through doors. -- Ed, Jacksonville, Fla.
This is one of those cases where you simply must give credit where credit is due. I was raised to loathe anything orange and blue, but even I have to raise a glass to the Gators. Winning national championships in basketball and football is quite a feat for any school, let alone both in the same season. Sure, I could launch into an all-out counterattack on my intrastate rivals, regarding the attractiveness of their student body, their average party scene, or the fact that the colors orange and blue really can make some folks nauseous, but I would simply be wasting my breath and energy. The fact is the Gators beat Ohio State fair and square. congrats to Urban Meyer and his squad. They were doubted by many, believed in by few, and persevered through it all. With that being said though, I am still not converting.
Jenn, a few weeks ago you called the Chargers a "near lock" for the Super Bowl. Sure they have the best player in the league but you forgot one thing everyone in Denver knows- Marty Schottenheimer is a loser! No matter how good a team he has he always finds a way to lose. What do you have to say for yourself? -- Cole, Littleton, Colo.
Eh, you win some you lose some, but please refrain from the Schottenheimer bashing. In every game, there must be a winner and a loser. Statistically, the Chargers were the better team, and given their homefield advantage, they should have beaten the Patriots. However, that game is just one more reason not to discount the impossible when you Belicheck and Brady at the helm. Granted, they lost to Tony Dungy's Colts this past weekend, but the B&B's postseason record together had been pretty flawless. As for the Super Bowl -- Go Colts!
You always seem to enjoy answering romance questions. So I want to ask you; what is your all-time favorite romance movie and why? Go Seminoles! -- Brian B., Charlotte, N.C.
Call me a hopeless romantic, but I honestly believe in Happily Ever After. Maybe that's why I am a sucker for Pretty Woman. It's crazy to think that two people from two completely different backgrounds, walks of life and social classes can defy the odds and still find the perfect partner in each other. He treats her with respect (something she has never known), while she teaches him simply how to "live," as I call it. The movie is all about taking risks on love to find something that betters you as a person and truly makes you happy. It's as close as you can get to a modern day fairytale that is loaded with classic movie quotes that I still use on a regular basis.
