Picabo Street As an Olympic Skier

 Picabo Street----  as an Olympic skier who won a gold medal.
She's become both an Alabama resident and an Alabama fan since {marrying|getting hitched with} an Alabama man and moving here. So it was no surprise that, when Fowler {asked|demanded} her to get the Alabama Arkansas game, she said, I am going with Bama. Roll Tide.
She also picked {South|Southern} Carolina to beat Auburn.  Georgia Tech over N.C. State.. Stanford over Notre Dame.. Oregon over Arizona State.. Cal over Arizona; LSU over West Virginia.. Mississippi State over Georgia; and Boise State over Oregon State.

Why did ESPN choose a famous skier as its guest picker from Boise? Because Street is an Idaho native and her brother Roland -- everybody knows him as "Baba," she told me by phone after the show -played football at Boise State.

"I may be drinking a bit of the crimson Kool-Aid down there (in Alabama)," she said on the show, "but I still bleed blue."

Street earned a distinction as the "GameDay" guest. As Fowler said on the show, she was "the first guest picker picking for two." She told the world that she's pregnant with her fourth son.

But her friends and neighbors already knew that.
