NEW MISS SPRINT CUP A ‘BACHELOR’ CONTESTANT

Holy burying the lead, Batman. The new Miss Sprint Cup was on this latest season of “The Bachelor.”

So my boss sends me a news release about the 2011 Miss Sprint Cups. Breathe easy folks, Paige and Monica are back. And each of those links takes you to a gallery. And you’re welcome. And I like fruit baskets.

The release then gives a brief bio on the new Miss Sprint Cup. Her name is Kim Coon. She’s the blonde on the right. Here’s some release copy verbatim.

Coon was pulled from the world of corporate marketing to join the Miss Sprint Cup lineup. Born and raised in Orlando, Fla., Coon received her undergraduate degree from the University of Miami and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama. Always on the go, she’s balanced a career in marketing and PR with her role as an NFL cheerleader and a volunteer with the Susan G. Komen For the Cure campaign.

Upon looking for some pictures on Al Gore’s favorite invention, I stumble across this picture.

Looks awfully similar to the picture in this link, which comes from this season’s “Bachelor.” Kimberly from the show is in marketing, just like Kim from the release. Kimberly was born in Orlando, just like Kim. Kimberly was an NFL cheerleader. Kim was too.

Turns out Kimberly failed to get a rose, which according to my wife is a victory because this year’s bachelor is “Cute, but dumb and occasionally a word that rhymes with boosh.” She watches this show more closely than Ron Jaworski watches NFL game film; so, I trust her judgment. Plus, this article suggests
Kimberly didn’t seemed to bummed to leave.

Turns out Kimberly from the show is Kim from the show we watch on weekends involving a bunch of dudes turning left. What a golden opportunity for NASCAR to expand its fan base. My wife already pledged to watch the finish at Daytona. If Team France can get Tony Stewart on “Dancing With The Stars” and Jeff Gordon to replace Regis Philbin, NASCAR’s ratings problems are a thing of the past.

Here are some other photos of team members past and present. You’re welcome.
