STOKKE STILL SHUNS ATTENTION WITH ESPN APPEARANCE: Allison Stokke, who has ridden a wave of internet popularity (which was started by WITH LEATHER and a certain SoCal sports blog), showed just how media shy she was Wednesday afternoon, as she guested in-studio with Steve Mason and John Ireland on KSPN-AM in Los Angeles.
The only mildly interesting part of the visit came when Stokke told Ireland that she’d been offered an acting part thanks to clamor created by her web-based fame. Stokke: “I don’t know what’s going to come of it. I highly doubt I can act.”
That’s more than we can say for Mason and Ireland, who somehow were able to convince Stokke that they were actually interested in her pole vaulting career for 30 minutes of airtime. But based on her body shots from the KSPN website, I guess a half-hour of disbelief suspension wasn’t so tough after all.
