Now that my "Bring Back Hud" post was so hugely successful (not...), I had another brilliant idea I'd like to share with you all and get your feedback to see if it's worth pursuing. I think we need to start a new tradition as part of our Angels "Tradition" motif this year, and that is to a select and hire an appropriate female icon to represent our team as the Halo Angel. (though you might prefer Halo Hottie). She will be our "poster girl," our muse, our home game and international ambassador of good will, and will represent the kinds of attributes we value as Angels fans: sportsmanship, being a champion, athleticism, courage, friendliness, intelligence, and of course, beauty. I hereby nominate Lindsay Vonn for this year's Halo Angel. She is friendly, articulate, fun and funny, courageous (skiing frequently with nagging injuries), a champion many times over--including one Gold Medal in the 2010 Olympics already in a totally dominating performance though injured, extremely athletic (she works out harder than anyone on the circuit they say), intelligent, and I think you'll agree, fairly attractive. The following link illustrates some of her finer qualities: Lindsay Vonn.
I know she is not involved in the sport of baseball, but, that's, ok. She certainly would look fine hanging out at the stadium in faded blue jeans and one of those retro white Angels jerseys so many of our fine female Angels fans wear to the games with the red lettering. I think this outfit --Lindsay Vonn--would also look good, but perhaps with "A's" embroidered throughout.
Her activities as Halo Angel might include hanging with the broadcast boys from time to time, appearing in Rally Monkey videos, greeting season ticket holders and Halo Heaven contributors on occasion, and perhaps shooting out t-shirts to the fans with one of those little airguns. Traveling like she does all over the world, she can bring all that is Halo-ness to the good people in foreign countries, casting a brilliant Halo spell internationally. I could even see that with the right financial incentive, a new attractive downhill outfit could be devised featuring a stark red ski suit emblazoned with Godzilla on her lovely backside. Maybe even something like this--Lindsay again--but with a little more red to it. I don't know, I'm not a big fashion person--our editorial staff appears to be more knowledgeable about such things.
Finally, and I hope all of this isn't viewed as yet another "waste of pixels" (like most of my work here), but I think we should give her an Honorary Membership in Halo Heaven and bring her into the warm embrace of our collective bosom. Thank you for your time and patience, but I feel rather strongly in many ways about this issue.
