Lisa Guerrero now blogging for L.A. Times

Lisa GuerreroRemember Lisa Guerrero? (See the photo to the right if you need a refresher.)

Well apparently the former Playboy pin-up and Monday Night Football sideline reporter is now blogging for the L.A. Times according to

Inspired by one part T.J. Simers & one part Barack Obama (no, really), the former sideline strutter and Playboy pin-up has decided to lend her talents to the blogosphere. And in the first entry in her new column, modestly entitled THE FABULOUS FORUM, Lisa talks about her presumably favorite subject – herself.

Here’s a small sampling of Lisa’s literary skills:

When I told a friend that I’d be writing for the L.A. Times, she told her husband. His response was,

“Really? Did she get fat?”

Now I know from experience that the camera adds 15 pounds, but I had no idea that picking up a pen and pad would give me a big butt. (Ed: I like big butts, and I cannot lie.) However, one glance at the sportswriters in the Dodgers press box would confirm that theory.

When you’re hidden behind a laptop instead of preening in front of a camera, there’s a natural tendency to inhale a few more Dodger Dogs and let those pounds add up.

Guerrero promises that future columns will be “fueled by a strong cup of joe – but most strong opinions.” So, all you fat sportswriters better watch out – Lisa’s coming after you, and she’s not pulling any punches!

The over/under on how long she makes it: 90 days. The Scores Report is now taking all wagers.
