Pimpin’ Your Daughter   3 comments

I’m a fan of college football. I know what it’s like to have an extra ticket.

I’m a dad. Love my daughter, known here as Little Girl.

That stated, I’m not going to use football tickets to pimp for my daughter. Like this guy did.

Pimp - Family

Gary Yates is a lifelong Tennessee Volunteers fan, who played the Florida Gators in football on Saturday. His stepdaughter is named Jessica Flanagan. Gary bought 4 tickets for the game so he could go with Jessica, Jessica’s date and his wife, Jessica’s mother.

And then Jessica’s date flaked on her, leaving Gary with an extra ticket … so he actually ran this ad on Craigslist:

Pimp - Craigslist adGary ran this ad with his daughter’s permission. And her mother’s permission. But he’s still an idiot.

The ad got response … big response. Jessica said there were 300+ respondents for this real life episode of The Bachelorette. She went through the email flood … and finally selected this guy:

Pimp - Joe ColellaJoe Colella is not a Tennessee Volunteers fan. Quite the opposite: he’s a graduate of Florida, who Tennessee is playing.

Oh, and he’s also using this as a promotional event. He’s a radio personality in West Palm Beach for the ESPN afflilate.

Oh, and he already has a girlfriend.

But don’t worry: his girlfriend is cool with him going on this date. Aren’t you glad?

Here's Jessica, in a photo that Joe tweeted from the game.

Here’s Jessica, with her game face on. Joe tweeted this photo from the game.

Oh, and the game?

It was as ugly as this dating situation. The first half was horrid; the 2nd half was just sad. Tennessee combined with # 19 ranked Florida to have no fewer than 7 turnovers. Tennessee lost, 31-17.

Jessica lost, again.

  1. Excellent post. I was wondering how you think the Gators will do this weekend against Louisiana State University?

    Can the the Gators offense score enough points against the LSU Tigers defense to win the game?
