I've paid my dues

Oh, these people are good. Just as the interminably perky Katie Couric (can't bring myself to link her) steps down over at the Today show, Good Morning America makes its move. They pulled off a masterful one-two stroke this week as they announced Sam Champion as their weather guy, just a day after naming Chris Cuomo the GMA news guy. There is simply no better way to get the internet chatter going than HIRING TWO HOT GUYS.Especially if one of them is a big homo. Seriously. Just watch the flurry over the next few days. Funny thing. If you google Sam Champion, the kindly search engine suggests you might also try the following: "Sam Champion gay" and "Is Sam Champion married?". The Today show is not taking all this lying down.Who knew Lauer had such a slab?

Wow, I watched Sam Champion for years growing up in NJ. Good for him.

With these 2 guys moving into GMA, it will be tempting to switch from my Today Show.

WHO KNEW that Matt had that under those suits? HEL-LO Matt! I've never thought of him as sexy before, but that picture is nice.

Matt and the slab - yeah i believe, you can tell by the way a suit sits on a person whats happening beneath. Not being one to check out the guys i didn't think about it long enough to consider if he was tanned though... mhmm

Maddie, and that Lauer shot comes out yesterday? Hmmm, methinks it's the morning show equivalent of raising the Threat Level. And if Sam Champion really is with Mike Piazza? Well, that is just beyond the ken. But I'll work on it and before long, it'll be within the ken. I need it to be.

Q, I think the last time I wore a suit the words "have you just gone through chemo?" were uttered. I'll never have the slab that Matt has (color me endomorphic), but I DO have his hair!

Maddie, I've been watching Sam for years, too. Good for him!

I remember being out one night about five years ago, having a martini and the news came on and this girl turned to me and said, "Sam Champion is gay and he dates my cousin and he keeps him in an apartment so no one will find out."

I wonder if that was true. And if he's dating Mike Piazza, I would be delighted. I don't know exactly why, but two NY institutions together? FABULOUS.

Michael said...

"Institutions" has never been sexier for me than it is right now.

Michael said...

Straight or gay macht nichts since I ain't gettin' him either way. He's hot, though. Now I'm wishing I could see these shows, but I'm long at work by the time they come on. I do enjoy the NBC Early Today for like 15 minutes. Kristine Johnston and that weather dude with the highlights (I always miss his name) are both FOO-INE.

Q - 60's girl said...

Ah so you are a hairy bear Michael :) and hey we are okay with the chemo look, you will live longer you fit thing...

BTW how did the bloods go?

Michael said...

Yeah, but not quite so hairy as Matt. I meant hairline. ::sigh::

The bloodwork? Mostly good. My white blood cell count/total lymphocytes were slightly low, but not really abnormal. The ranges they used were very tight. Everything else was FAB, actually. My total cholesterol at 180 or so doesn't seem great until you see that HDLs are 77 which is crazy good. And you didn't ask, but the Cubans are just fine, even though Esteban has been a little tender lately (hence my concern). Oh and my bunghole is pristine! Good mornin'!
((Thanks for inquiring, Q.

The Other Andrew said...

::blink::

Congrats on the bunghole! How nice for you.

BTW, I don't know who these boys are (ok, Lauer I have some idea) but they are crazy cute.

Katie Couric's false 'concern' over EVERY story finally got me to switch the TODAY show off. We watched it regularly here for a good 10 years; then one day--shut it off. I've always thought Matt was sweet; those abs though...yowsah! However, I must confess: 20/20's JOHN STOSSEL has me stoked for the long haul.
