No Saving Grace
Well, my bracket is busted, before the tournament even got started. I thought for sure Alexis would make it into the Top 5 at the least, possibly all the way to the end, but America has torched my Fantasy Idol picks. Bummer.
I think Alexis deserved to stay longer than she did, but whatever. It will be an odd touring group with 7 guys and only 3 girls. Odd indeed.
Here are the Fantasy Idol Standings through 2 weeks:
Addie’s Auntie Jen 12 Kat 12 Kelsey 12 Lisa Criste 12 Phyllis 12 Tracy Bramwell 12 Zach Attack 12 Caroline Criste 11 Jaime 11 Kathy 11 Kristina Beras 11 Mark Bramwell 11 Suzer Steege 11 Jason Christ 10
Other highlights of the evening:
- We taped the show and watched it back in only 30 minutes. No commercials and no Brad Paisley for us.
- When I fast forward on my ancient VCR, I hit stop and then fast forward because it’s faster than watching the fast forward. Most commercial breaks are about 3 minutes. Idol commercials tend towards 4 minutes though. So I turned on the display timer, fast forwarded and hit play like I did for every other commercial break this evening. Only to discover that the last last commercial break is only 3 minutes, so it came on with Ryan and Alexis on stage. So much for the drama of the moment.
- My picks really needed Alexis to get saved. If they didn’t use it here, I’m not sure they will. What were they thinking?
