Colt McCoy, Rick Reilly® writes, "has a girlfriend hotter than shrimp vindaloo, Rachel Glandorf." The first thing you'll notice is that he's analogizing a woman to Indian cuisine. The second: He names her, awkwardly. And now look what he's done...
Yes, as I type this, "rachel glandorf" is the top trend on Google, ahead of "strange cloud hangs over city" (No. 3), "john wooden" (No. 9), "my calorie number" (No. 15), "lillian gish" (No. 21) and "brady quinn house for sale" (No. 22). Behold, the power of a single columnist and his hornball food metaphor. Google now thinks her hotness has exceeded that of any Goan curry; she is, as the search engine reports, "Volcanic."
UPDATE: Rachel wasn't so thrilled about her last brush with Internet fame:
This is Rachel Glandorf and one of my friends sent me a link to the latest picture that was posted with my friend in our bathing suits. I understand the nature of your website and that your job is to find exciting content. I don't care about all the other pictures, but is there any way you could take off the picture in our bathing suits. That picture was taken just to show our matching suits and was never supposed to go on Facebook. Between my school, my team and my boyfriend, I really don't want to misrepresent anyone.
Again, I understand it is your job to find content that no one else has, but I would really appreciate it if you could take that one picture off. Thank you AJ! Hope you're having a great week!
AJ politely declined her request, citing Deadspin policy. To which Rachel replied, even more politely:
Thank you very much for your response, I really do appreciate it. At this point it's not the biggest deal since apparently the picture is on quite a few other sites now. I learned a lesson in all of this so please know that I'm not blaming you at all for the picture...I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask :).
Colt and I don't watch or read anything that is said so I really don't know what else is out there. We know that that kind of stuff doesn't define us so he especially doesn't listen to anything positive or negative that is said. So thank you for the opportunity, but I won't need to go on the record. We just plan to continue living a faith based life and being good examples in everything we do especially since lately there is so much more attention.
Again, thank you AJ for your time and consideration. You didn't have to respond so please know I really appreciate it! Hope you have a great week!
