I’m with Team Coco

Posted on: March 12, 2010

I’m not usually one to jump on celebrity bandwagons. I don’t go buy shirts emblazoned with Team Aniston or Free Winona. However, Team Coco is one wagon I’m running for.

In case you’ve been out of touch with the media, Conan O’Brien was kicked out of his Tonight Show slot so that Jay Leno could reclaim his past fan basis. Oh Jay. My dislike for you has grown even more.

You see, I’ve never been a Leno fan. In high school and college, I only watched The Late Show with David Letterman. Never Leno. Never. Call me weird, but I found Jay to be really annoying, so I refused to watch him.

Sometime in the early 2000’s I became a fan of Conan. Then in 2003, Jonathan and I took a trip to NYC (where we arrived literally hours before the Northeast Blackout of 2003 hit). Thanks to some fancy street talk, Jonathan scored us tickets to see Conan the day we arrived. Conan interviewed Al Roker, Shia LaBeouf and the Dandy Warhols played. It was spectacular. And sealed my love of Conan forever.

So, naturally, when Conan took over for Jay, I was thrilled. So long Jay, hello Conan! Of course, this did pose some competition between Conan and Dave (who we’ve also seen live), but I was okay with it – seeing as we always watch the shows on Hulu anyway.

But once NBC announced it’s plan to put Jay back into his Tonight Show slot, I immediately sided with Conan. Conan is now doing a “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour” starting in May. He’ll be in Chicago right after Mother’s Day. I think I want need to go. After all, what it’s a better Mother’s Day gift? And if I don’t get to go, I at least need this shirt:

That trip to NYC sealed to deal for me and the lovely city. Complete chaos… No subways, No fine dining, No Lights… No lights in Times Square. That was a once in a lifetime opportunity. And I’m glad we got to share it together babe.

I don’t know if we’ll get to see the TeamCoco tour, but I do know that you will look quite ridiculous walking around the house with that t-shirt. But, I still love you honey!

too funny 🙂

I like you and your husband. Maybe I’ve said that before. Anyway, I agree- Jay sucks. Who doesn’t know this??? (answer: NBC)

p.s. Slightly offended my blog is in the obligatory friends/fam category and not favorite. Sigh.

Just for you, I’ll move it. Why? Because I’m just that nice. 😉
