The Super Terrific Erin Andrews Expiring ESPN Contract Watch Happy Post, Day 1

With the days winding down until the contract the lovely Miss Erin Andrews has with ESPN expires on July 1st, there is sure to be much discussion on these here internets regarding whether or not the Sideline Princess will remain at the Worldwide Leader in Sports or if she will move on to greener pastures. Consider the Sportress of Blogitude your go-to site for any developments regarding Erin Andrews Contractgate, at least until I grow tired of it and move on to some other mindless pursuit, which could happen pretty much at any time.

Miss Andrews is currently in the fine city of Omaha, Nebraska to do her part for ESPN’s coverage of the College World Series. Unfortunately, Andrews is either unwilling or unable (nor is her agent) to discuss her contract status and its impending expiration. From the USA Today:

“I’m in a situation where I’m not talking to people about that,” Andrews said.

Andrews built her celebrity at ESPN and expanded upon it as a finalist on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” this year. She said she hopes to stay involved in sports but also cross over more into other areas.

“I already have,” she said. “It used to be the guys just wanted to talk to me about sports. Now women know more about me because of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and they want to ask me about ‘Max,'” she said, referring to her dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Ah yes, Maksim Whatshisnameskiy. Whatever, dude.

Alrighty, then. I guess this concludes Day 1 of the Sportress of Blogitude’s coverage of the Super Terrific Erin Andrews Expiring ESPN Contract Watch Happy Post thingamajig.

Jeez, I really thought this had the makings of a much more compelling feature. In fact,  I’m already bored and have grown tired with the whole bit. Then again, it is getting pretty late in the morning and I haven’t taken Nap #2 yet, so I suppose that could be playing into it as well. So, um, how are things with you guys? Doing well? Anything new? Huh.

Stay tuned, I guess.
