Everyone's favorite editor (well, except Elliot Wilson, ha) is back like a spinal cord, carrying more cats than a bag lady's pushcart. Somebody call A-Rod and tell him to take lessons.
Last night, I was out getting free drinks at the Pub (tip your bartender! ... or know them ahead of time) and trying to make sense of SportsNet NY with no captions, nearly panicking when a graphic reading, "NEXT: Jose Reyes' reaction," popped up during Willie Randolph's press conference. With no context, that kind of thing SCREAMS injury or ejection. The bartender informed me about the Mets' back-to-back leadoff homers, and with my worries assuaged, I returned to my beer, steadying the residual shakes of thinking-their-season-was-ending nervousness.
I looked up from a long swallow, and immediately exclaimed, "She's hot!" A buddy next to me asked who, and I pointed to the screen. "Her." "Wow. I'd give her another pearl necklace. Who is she?" *Cue convenient identifying graphic*
Donaldson, a former model who was Miss Florida 2001, is a reporter for SNY's "Geico SportsNite." Her bio notes that she graduated from the University of Florida and that prior to SNY, she worked for the Miami Heat's Heat TV and some abortion of a show called "Sports Rap" on her regional FOX Sports Net. Since the only blog references I've found are a throwaway April post at now-defunct Beltran's Mole, a brief February note at The Metropolitans and a pBase photo gallery from 2005, I'm claiming Visionary status. She fine.
Definitely in the mix for your AMS slot. Sleep on it a lil' bit come draft day, because she's on the low for now.
