Erin Andrews Fears Birds, Loves Mitch Albom, Ands Wants Dudes to Stop Ogling Her While She Sleeps on a Plane

There hasn't been too much news around the Erin Andrews Universe of late even though America's favorite sideline princess is still crisscrossing the country covering college football. She did this interview with the Sports Business Daily (sub. req.) which reveals some information about her that is both equally charming and a little odd:

Favorite sports city: Boston, Chicago, any SEC town What are you most afraid of: Birds Dream car: I'd have to say my dream car is the car I currently drive, which is a BMW SUV Favorite Web sites:, An idea you wish you thought of: Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts Favorite airline: Delta Book you are currently reading: "The Five People You Meet In Heaven," by MITCH ALBOM


I don't know which I find more troubling: the fact that she's afraid of birds or she's reading the poofy-haired gnome's book. Come on, Erin. What were they out of "Eat, Pray, Love"? Also, she reveals another setback of being the most lusted after sideline reporter in media today — airplane stalkers:

I've started to learn that falling asleep on a plane, maybe I need to wear a hat. I'll fall asleep on the plane and I'm out before takeoff and I'm comatose — that's my time to sleep, when I'm on the plane traveling from one game to another. You don't know what you look like when you sleep but as soon as I wake up someone says, "So, what game are you going to?" and I'm just like "Oh my gosh, where am I? What city am I in?" I don't know if I'm drooling or I had my mouth wide open or what. You don't feel like people are watching you but they really are.

You know, it's one thing to spend every week traipsing the sidelines trying to do your job while half the crowd in attendance takes cellphone pictures of your ass, but now it's happening on airplanes. Can't wait for the photo of Erin Andrews wearing a giant hat, drooling on a Delta red eye flight back from Thursday night football. Catching up with Erin Andrews [Sports Business Daily]
