Bye, Tyra!

I'm not really into the whole fashion/modeling world, but this news caught my eye -- Tyra Banks, who recently underwent a sonogram to prove that her breasts are real, has just retired from modeling at age 32. Man, to have the luxury to retire from something at the age of 32... I'm 32, I want to retire too!

Anyway, Tyra will keep busy with America's Next Top Model and her own talk show. Most likely, I will never watch either. Still, I want to take a moment to remember my favorite Tyra Banks moment. Without question, it has to be Tyra's appearances with Lil Penny in the 90s Nike commercials. Yes, she looks fabulous in her outfit from her final runway appearance at the Victoria's Secret show, but that's nothing when compared to being the love interest of foot tall, basketball-playing puppet.

Good luck Tyra! We'll miss you on the runway (well I won't really notice, but someone will!). Of course, now this means that there's room for my gurl Paulie to be America's Next Top Model!
