For the second year in a row, Chicago Bears offensive linesman-turned-broadcaster Tom Thayer has been selected to become the official spokesperson of the city of Joilet, a suburb southwest of Chicago.
The response to the ad campaign has been overwhelmingly positive, according to city officials. Thayer, part of the 1985 Super Bowl Champion team, was a hometown football standout at Joilet Catholic High School (which also produced another hometown Super Bowl winning standout -current Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Alstott.)
It’s a great choice, indeed. But you wonder why they didn’t ask the other hometown celebrity, America’s Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry? She won the first Top Model, then went on to the The Surreal Life, met former Brady Bunch has-been Christopher Knight, fell in love, and got their own reality show in My Fair Brady, in which they married in an now-closed church in Joilet….
Oh. That’s why. (And the fact that Tom Thayer won something much more meaningful.)
So I take it that Tyra Banks hasn’t been the only one ignoring her….
