Bradshaw Blitz, Day Two

So I had this idea to go to the Daytime Talk Shows and see if any of them are doing any little special segments that might be appropriate avenues for me to pursue my Dream Date with TB. Today, I emailed the following to the Ellen DeGeneres show.

"I want to go an a Dream Date with Terry Bradshaw. Why would a married mother of three from Missouri want to spend time with a Hall of Fame Quarterback? Terry is one of the funniest people in existence anywhere. Obviously, the accomplishments of his legendary career are extrordinary (and yes, I do understand football and enjoy watching it), but I really admire him for two other reasons. First, and particularly dear to my heart, are his efforts to de-stigmatize the use of medication to treat depression, particularly for men. It meant a lot to me personally to see this big, tough, strong man admit that he also takes anti-depressants. I'm kinda one of those cryin-on-the-inside clowns myself. That's what I dig about TB more than anything.

Additionally, the man bares his pasty ass in Failure to Launch! Forgive the play on words, but that's really ballsy!

I would really love to go to dinner and maybe see a movie (maybe even Failure to Launch, so he could see his own nekkid butt, wouldn't that be funny?) or something goofy like that with Terry Bradshaw. Yes, my husband is fully aware of my fondness for Terry, (and so are my blog readers at and hubby's cool with my wanting to do this. That's probably because he doesn't think it will ever happen. And nothing gives me more sheer joy than proving hubbypoo wrong.

Now, I don't want to marry Terry or anything (his track record, hel-LO!), I just wanna hang out with him. I bet he's an absolute hoot.

Anyway, I know that something like this My Crazy Dreams thing is the only way I'd really get to meet the man, so I thought I'd give it a try."

Oh, it's gonna happen, y'all. Stay tuned.

But before I go... tell me why THIS picture is funny.

I wonder if Joe Nameth knows that Terry Bradshaw is running around signing his name to stuff.

I'm right there with you regarding Terry. He is the reason I watch the Fox pregame show - I bet he is a hoot. As for the football that is too funny. They were both quarterbacks at the same time - Namath for the Jets and Bradshaw was with the Steelers. The funny thing is I can see Terry Bradshaw signing Namath's name and running with the gag.

Doesn't Terry Bradshaw have the BEST laugh EVER??? I'm so glad you concur. R thinks I'm just straight-up crazy.

I think I'd actually tune in to daytime TV to see you on The Ellen D show.

I consulted my Magic 8 Ball and it predicted that you and Terry are most likely to cross paths one day.
