OK people, I have a task for you, and hey, I don’t ask for much, so help us out here.
Monster and the NFL are in the process of choosing the next NFL Director of Fandemonium. Basically, this person gets to do all kinds of cool stuff related to promoting the NFL and their favorite team. This year’s contest is now down to the final eight contestants and representing your Green Bay Packers is Aretina Trepczyk.
Not only does she like the Packers, but her favorite food is fried cheese curds and she’s also pretty damn cute.
Really, what more could you want?
Nothing. That’s what.
Aretina is currently in sixth place, so she needs your help to win.
If you’re still not swayed to go vote, I’ll tell you this. Last year’s winner was some scumbag Minnesota Vikings fan and I think we need to show the NFL how it’s done. I mean, to think that a Minnesota Vikings fan could properly represent NFL fans, especially Packers fans, is not only laughable, but insulting.
Let’s make this right!
Vote for Aretina. Vote early. Vote often. And then vote again!
Here’s her Fandemonium video, in which Sterling Sharpe calls her “fantabulous.”
Hey, what can I say? He went to South Carolina, but if fantabulous were a word, we’d totally agree.
Finally, here are a couple more shots of our girl for your ogling. Now vote!
Vote for Aretina!
Vote for Aretina!
Not only would she be a great representative for the Packers, but she has a Greenbay Packer fan that’s a dog. Go see her video clips of Bullet the Green Bay Packer Puppy on her face book pictures and videos.
I love this article! So nicely said. Really, we must overtake the Vikings, pronto!!! VOTE PACKERS ALL THE WAY TO THE SUPERBOWL AND NEXT DIRECTOR OF FANDEMONIUM DESK!!!!
All I can say is “A Packers Snuggie?!?!! Awesome!!”
Seriously, THIS one you can vote for daily, AND every vote you cast (and your family members cast, and your friends, and co-workers, and WHOever) is ALSO a chance to win two Super Bowl tickets, too!! I know, there are several links ‘here’ going to the top of the NFL-Monster site, but THIS link takes you STRAIGHT to where you need to vote: http://tinyurl.com/yk6k7cq
Please vote Daily!!
Oh, get real. YOU are the one who is “slow” if you’re going to try to use Sterling Sharpe’s use of the word “fantabulous” as “proof” that he’s not too educated or bright. Some people will take any flimsy opportunity to rag on athletes’ so-called intelligence-level or English-language skills – ignoring things like CONTEXT and COMMON SENSE. You’re acting as though no Harvard-educated Mensa has ever used a made-up trendy word that’s not in Webster’s: I assure you, even these geniuses use non-words like “fantabulous” in light-hearted, non-serious situations (at least the ones who don’t have a stick up their behinds).
Here’s a clue: I think Sterling’s use of “fantabulous” is a result of his not taking himself (or the situation) too seriously – NOT a result of his not knowing any better. Maybe if you were over your envy or ignorance, and/or desperate grasp at some sense of superiority, you could “lower yourself” to use the word.
Here’s a clue for you – lighten up. It was a joke. Go buy a sense of humor and get off your high horse.
Oh, sure – it was a “joke”. Your comment reminded me exactly of those kinds of “jokes” that people make when they really want to be condescending and/or a jerk about something – but opt to “cleverly” disguise their hang-ups in the form of a “joke”.
I know the difference between a real joke, and some snide “joke” imposter crap that’s actually a stealth put-down.
Consciously or not, you are passively-aggressively showing some kind of personal problem toward Sterling Sharpe, and/or toward (ex) athletes in general. I’m tired of journalists and basement-dwelling bloggers like yourself who take these sort of shots at athletes.
Sterling Sharpe, in particular – doesn’t fit the stereotype of the dumbo (ex) jock that people like to perpetuate, and you know it. He’s actually pretty darn intelligent. Maybe that’s what bothers you – so you feel the need to nitpick his use of a word that he CLEARLY used in jest, and “jokingly” perpetuate this false idea that he’s uneducated or “dumb”.
If it was really a “joke”, why didn’t you make the same “joke” about the word “Fandemonium”??? I mean, you can’t find that word in a Webster’s either, right? But you willingly used “fandemonium” without making any disparaging remarks or “jokes”, while getting on your high horse when Sharpe uses the word “fantabulous”. Yeah – this discrepancy exposes you, buddy.
