Wing king Robert Brooks earned his wings at the age of 69 yesterday as the CEO of Hooters kicked the bucket (note: we make the Hooters bucket reference with reverance here). While his latest venture Hooters Air never really took off Mr. Brooks can rest assured that many a beer will be raised to the sky in his honor by sportsbar frequenters everywhere this week. Whether he is currently being waited on by buxom winged cherubs sporting tight orange shorts remains to be seen but one thing for sure is that Robert Brooks certainly leaves a legacy.
So in honor of Mr. Brooks theWadeblogs looks at a half-dozen, hot and spicy Hooters girls who have gone on to bigger and better things themselves (interestingly enough all of them share a sports connections).
Jessica Canseco - Learn how the former Playboy bunny was actually picked up by her ex-hubby Jose on just her second day on the job as a Hooters girl in our exclusive VIDEO interview with Jessica. (Picture at left is from Jess's latest movie "Gettin' It" email me if you want to see more... too hot to post.)
Leeann Tweeden - Before her days spent serving it up with Tom Arnold and John Sally on Fox's Best Damn Sports Show Period, Leeann was infact a Hooters girl. (click on thumb to enlarge)
Lynne Austin (aka the former Mrs. Darren Daulton) - Before her husband went batty Lynne was hit on as Hooters girl. Playboy's Ms. July 1986 is recently known for 86'ing her UFO fearing ex-husband on her Florida radio talk show Sportschix. (click on the thumbnail at left to enlarge)
Amy Adams - Before almost winning Oscar gold for her role in Junebug this redhead wore Hooters orange. Adams will get your engines started again as can be seen in next month's Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Christy Hemme - Unbeknownest to the guys slamming beers around this young Hooters waitress, was that Christy would one day go on to slam opponents in the WWE.
If you are looking for some words to live by read this interview piece done by Clemson Co-Ed magazine last year complete with mammary jokes and quotes like “I work hard to get out of work. I don’t get up until late in the morning. I have long lunches, though most of the time they’re working lunches. I don’t look at it as work; I’m having a good time. During a physical, the doctor asked how I felt. At 68, I said my concern is I feel too good.” Right on Robert Brooks... right on.
For those who want to give a hoot or a holla feel free to share your condolences, thoughts, and thanks to the late, great Robert Brooks below. Also if you know of anymore famous Hooters girls... send us their info and we'll add them to our list.
