Lolo Jones is a little bit…well, whoever nicknamed her “Coco Loco” is kind of a genius. The hurdler/sprinter and America’s second most famous virgin (Tim Tebow is #1) is constantly making headlines for saying and doing controversial things. So even though Coco Loco sounds like a drink you order on a cruise ship off the coast of St. Thomas, and it indeed is that as well, it’s also perfect to describe newfound bobsledder Lolo Jones.
Hey, at least Lolo Jones is keeping herself relevant in a non-olympics year.
The Bear Trap Entertainment All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party take places tomorrow night at the Playboy Mansion. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Artists and Athletes Alliance. I know what you’re thinking, Lolo Jones is going to a party to kick off what exactly??
This is the WORST week in the calendar for all of sports! What Lolo Jones is kicking off at the playboy party is “sports awards show week,” which is just code for the ESPYs. ESPN wisely has their self-referential, self-gratifying “awards show” this week, traditionally the worst week in all sports news.
Celebrities expected to attend the Playboy Mansion party include:
Will Smith, Warren Moon, Rob Kardashian, Lolo Jones, Chris Tucker, DeSean Jackson, Carmen Electra, Bode Miller, Ryan Sheckler, Kenny Lofton, Rick Fox, Clay Matthews, Greg Jennings, Cristina Milian, Anquan Boldin, Jacoby Jones, Jermichael Finley, Chevy Chase, Hanley Ramirez, Scottie Pippen, Nelly and more.
