Finally, here we are at the Elite 8. This first game of the round is between two ladies that were not known by everybody coming into the tournament, but are sure to be household names very soon. It's unfortunate that one of them will have to go home after this game, but one of them will secure a spot in the coveted Thighnal Four. Who's dream is going to come true?
Megan FoxMegan's probably been the most impressive performer in this tournament thus far, with two absolutely dominating performances, one of which was our only shutout of the tournament against Joumana Kidd. Most recently, she sent #2 seed Anna Kournikova back to Russia in the Sweet 16. People thought she might go down to a veteran in Halle Berry, but she proved that she's ready for the pressure involved on the treacherous journey that is the "Road To The Thighnal Four".
Her run certainly isn't a surprise to me though. I mean, look at those eyes. She has the best eyes I've ever seen. At 21, she's skyrocketing up hot ladies charts everywhere after her role as Mikaela Barnes in the blockbuster film Transformers. Maxim ranked her #18 on their "Hot 100" list of 2007, one spot behind the Thigh Goddess. You can see she has a tattoo in the top picture: "I have five. Anytime I have a feeling about anything, I get tattooed. I have a poem I wrote on my ribcage and a symbol for strength on my neck, and my boyfriend Brian’s name tattooed next to my pie." Whoa. The Brian she is referring to is one Brian Austin Green, and they are engaged. Yep, David Silver from Beverly Hills 90210. That son of a bitch. Hopefully for him, he doesn't run that situation into the ground like he did when in charge of the Peach Pit.
Shannon JamesShannon took down the sexy tennis star Ana Ivanovic in the first round, the "Queen of Porn" Jenna Jameson in the second round, and Aida Yespica, the Venezuelan with an ass to die for in the Sweet 16. She's also shown that she has no problem putting a wiener in her mouth. That's my kinda girl.
Poorly Acquitted had this to say about Shannon in the Sweet 16, and it pretty much sums up everything I've already said and more: "I have to admit that I had no idea who Shannon James was when we started the Road to the Thighnal Four. Needless to say I'm a huge fan. Sorority girl. Playmate. Hooters model. Loves hot dogs. She apparently wants to be a host on E! news. That will be my new favorite channel if she ever makes it. She beat Ana Ivanovic in the first round, at least one contributor to the Thigh thought Ana had the talent to make a deep run in the tournament. That tells you an awful lot about Shannon. She also kicked Jenna Jameson to the curb in the second round. James train rolling through."
