Colleen Bellotti-who may or may not be the First Lady of Oregon football-laid in to the Oregonian's John Canzano at Saturday's game, and she didn't care who was around.

I told her that it played especially poorly to me that she would approach me in the press box, with a strong smell of alcohol on her breath, hissing and spitting mad, talking to me about alcohol abuse.
Then, the nanny, still holding the toddler, unleashed a foul-mouthed tirade.
