… and there is JILL WAGNER

***

In the 120+ years of North Carolina State University, there is an on-going list of Notable Notables – Jimmy V … “Roman” … BobKennel(?) … “Skywalker” … Everett Case … “The Acidophilus Guy” … PR … BobKennel(??) … Russell … now “Trea” … … … and there is JILL WAGNER!

Your list is “your list” including / excluding (Kennel?) whoever and in whatever order you wish.  If “your list” includes “Hawkeye” and “Spud” and “T.A.” … it’s Your List.  But Yours Must include JILL WAGNER.

.

NOTE:  UNCCH, Duke and ECU each have “porn stars” on their lists.  NCSU has JILL WAGNER on its list.  Score One for the Land Grant School in West Raleigh!

.

Last week I strolled into Blondie’s office as she was multi-tasking between (1) “forestalling the inevitable collapse of Western Civilization” and… (2) “watching a Hallmark Christmas Movie”.  Blondie’s Inner Sanctum has more screens than a Best Buy showroom.

As I do thru-out the day, I inquired “… is everything working OK?” Then, I noticed the Hallmark Christmas Movie she was watching… “OMG!  That’s JILL WAGNER” I exclaimed.  “Yes, I really like her” Blondie replied  “she is one of my favorite Hallmark actresses…”

“OH MY”… I blurted “she’s from Winston-Salem… she was “The Mercury Girl” (from 2005-2011)… and she is THE Most Famous NC State coed – ‘2001 – EVER… EVER… EVER!”

.

.

From Winston-Salem .. > … NC State .. > .. “Mercury Girl” .. > .. Zombie movies w/ “Aquaman” .. > .. that goofy Wipe-Out obstacle course show .. > .. some more straight-to-video- movies .. > .. And NowA Bona-fide STAR on Hallmark Christmas Movies… AND as murder-solving “Professor Amy Winslow” on Hallmark Mystery Channel and a bunch of other Hallmark movies.

What Else has JILL WAGNER done since “Mercury”…

Interview w/ JILL WAGNER… 2009

JILL WAGNER and Hallmark

From 2005-2011 JILL WAGNER was for Mercury what Betty Furness was for Westinghouse Appliances in the 50s … what Vanna White has been for Wheel Of Fortune since forever.

JILL WAGNER … in her trademark capri pants and knit sweater… 6″ stilletos… and “a melt-your-heart smile and charm” … posed beside Mercurys for six years.  Truthfully, she coulda been shilling for used porta-johns or “Free El Chapo” and it wouldna mattered…. but JILL WAGNER would never do such things.

From everything I read for this column… which was A LOT … JILL WAGNER is even more down-to-earth, wholesome, gosh-darn nice than you’ve always hoped she would be. 

I will go so far as to compare JILL WAGNER to KATHY IRELAND in the even more gosh-darn nice than you hoped she would be. … JILL – and Carrie Underwood (another “gosh darn nice mega-hottie”) – are both happily married to hockey players.

WARNING: To all NC Staters… If you “know somebody who knew somebody” at NC State during The JILL WAGNER Years – late 90’s-early 00’s – who sorta kinda knew JILL WAGNER and claims “she was “*************” … and that “*****….” is not 100% Incredibly Nice … I don’t wanna hear it and…

I WILL BLOCK any/all such sacrilegious comments.

Brooke Baldwin

NOTE:  But if… any UNCers have sordid stories about CNN’s insufferable Brooke Baldwin during that same period over in Chapel Hill , please pass THOSE along… with uncut video if available.

Sort of a Critical Event this Saturday at The NOT Dixie Classic Fairgrounds over in Winston-Salem.  Can / Will Wuff’s DD ever beat Deacon Dave again?  Based on past two years… it’s ?????

Would rank/file Wuff Fans... trade a “W” over Wake – this year – instead of a 3rd W in a row over UNC?  I suspect NOT… since you don’t have as many Deacon loyalists in your social orbit to make your life “A Living Hell”.

BUT… Would you trade “Ls” – this year – to both WFU and UNC for a “W” over Dabo ?  Now THAT is an intriguing “What If”.

In a serious chat with a lunch table full o’ long-time Tru-Blues on Thursday… it was A CONSENSUS that, eight games into Season One of Mack2.0, the HoF Coach appears to be “showing his age”.  No, NOT to the OMG level of his final two years in Austin, but decidedly not as spry and bright-eyed as he was at his I’M BACK presser last December.   Maybe Sallie needs to get Mack some Super Geritol?

###

Alas.  No “Real Bowl” for Appy State... sigh.  One “L” and now they are doomed to a Whozit Bowl versus a “Where is that school located?” opponent.

Have you and your buddies compared Duke’s “Uh Oh” choice of a final goal line play to Seattle’s OMG in their SB loss to Patriots?  Many are doing so …

###

I did not have a “My Team” in The WS so no emotional repercussions over the outcome.  A ring for Trea of course.  Russell,  Bill Cowher, and likely other Wuff alums have SB rings.  Did Chucky Brown (or Thurl Bailey) get an NBA Champ ring?  Any Wuffs have NBA rings?

… PLUS some cool stuff going on at The Favorite Books page.  … not to mention 6-8 Kick-Butt new columns this past week over at SaidWHAT? … for those interested in the Fate of America As We Know It.

In the Ongoing Adventures of ReRe and YaYa in Madison WI… there are only Two seasons up in Wisconsin – Winter and July.  It ain’t July any more.  Blondie heads up there in 10-day for a week of GrandNanny duty.  She’s stocking me up with jars of Brunswick Stew.

A few years ago I bought a nice used commercial mower from Mr Wagner. It was outside his tire store in WS. When I went in to talk to him about it, he invited me into his unassuming office. I asked him about the picture of the pretty girl He told me it was his daughter and she was doing Mercury ads. He was proud of her but not overbearingly so. I would rate him pretty high. She exudes elegance and class.

Will Jill Wagner be replacing Lori “Aunt Becky” Laughlin in some of the roles that were designated for her before she became a major college donor? State should be patient with DD. One bad hire and they could end up like FSU where Taggert has just been let go. WFU likely to head to a New Years Day bowl if Clemson wins out. How they accomplished this without getting involved in the arms race is amazing!

Checked with the daughter and son-in-law last night who were at NC State 1996-2000. Never heard of her while in Raleigh but he did remember her from the car commercials. Headed to cousin Sue/ Jimmy’s this morning for a pig picking. I will report back on Jimmy’s secret sauce. This invite keeps from from heading to WS for who knows whatever but probably not good . I did get my free taco courtesy of Trea.

I would have liked to go to Late Night With Roy this year but Brooke Baldwin was one of the hosts. I could not stand to see her live.
.
Have been to Mack brown Live twice this season. I really like what he has to say about coaching students. It would be interesting to hear what the players really think.

Ms. Wagner grew up and went to Ledford High School just up the road in the part of Davidson county with Winston-Salem addresses. Suburban/rural area. I’ve still got 3 herds of cows I work within a mile of where her Dad lived. Granted, now there’s also a Hale Irwin designed golf course surrounded by $500K houses within a mile. Dad ran a successful tire business in WS

I had 3 Mercury Grand Marquis company cars in a row if that counts. The date up top on this masterpiece says November 4, 2019. Did I blackout for 3 days? I only had one beer. Just checking.

Yikes ! I may be in one of Prince Albert’s leagues because I didn’t even know Jill Wagner was a State alum. Furthermore never watched anything she was famous for. Don’t doubt her being very nice as well as beautiful. . Spent much of a day last week with a UNC-CH graduate singer and song-writer Tift Merritt. She is good looking and a truly nice person. Doing some important historical work toward Duke which I’ll share when further along. . As for desired football outcomes, I’ll take a win at WF, wins at home over Clemson and UNC-CH, and hope… Read more »

I watched the game last night. GaSo showed up to play. App did not tackle. Zac was not accurate. A season’s worth of dropped passes. We got beat. Time to look to the USC game in 8 days.

Pick up, dust off, Charlie Mike.
We still have the coolest named Lineman, Baer Hunter.

The website design is great. I can’t believe I have never heard of Jill Wagner. Never even seen her before now. I don’t know who takes the photos of State’s women’s basketball team, but they make them all look beautiful – like Glamor Shots. And yes I would take wins over UNC and Wake. I saw part of the App State game. Drink must have taken some of that NC State s**t with him to Boone. I turn 66 tomorrow so I can start collecting my government check now. Hope you are doing well.

Yes BobLee, Chuck Nevitt was on the 1985 Lakers team that won the NBA title. I don’t believe he was the MVP however.😁
