JOEL MCHALE IN THE HIZZZZZOUUUSSSSSEEE!!!!


list for going to see joel mchale of "the soup" at the mandalay bay in las vegas:
1. 15 passenger van CHECK.
2. crutches, handicapped parking pass, & scooter for our handi-"capable" friend CHECK.
3.XXXXL "i heart joel" undies CHECK.
4.reservation for dinner at maggiano's for 13 v.i.p. guests CHECK.
5.lots of energy and spazzy, age-inappropriate behavior for a very late night CHECK.

jody helping jared into the "special van".......fyi, yes, he wore the helmet the whole way down.

NOM NOM NOM---dinner at maggiano's at the fashion show mall. good stuff.


you know when they say a picture is worth a thousand words? i'll just let these next three pictures in the elevator tell the story:




after dinner we went to the show--seeing joel mchale was awesome, and i must say, he was really FUNNY!! i was worried that real-life stand-up joel wouldn't be able to live up to tv "the soup" host joel, but i was wrong. he had us laughing so hard at times that there were tears streaming down my face and i couldn't breathe.

we had our ginormous panties that russ threw down on the stage at the end, but joel didn't see them. steve went down to grab them and tried to give them to a stage hand to give to mr. mchale (cuz we knew he would want them. fo real.) and the guy said, "go give them to him yourself--he's outside, signing autographs and posing for pictures.


SHUT UP!
can i just tell you how excited we were? i think you can see it in our faces--the thing that was so cool about our television star bff joel was that he was right there, touching, hugging, not afraid to get right next to us or anyone he was taking photos with. i think there was a special love in his heart for us as he did say while signing our ginormous pair of panties that it was the strangest thing he'd ever autographed. he was totally down to earth and normal and unaffected and it was awesome! (btw: notice how his hand is strategically placed over mine, signifying that he liked me best? just saying......)


okay, can you tell we were just a teensy-tinsy bit star struck? he was signing the big-girl underwear on kristin's back.

i think travis was as star-struck as we ladies were--this is one of the many photos i have with his head in the corner.....


MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! he signed "ryan" for his bff seacrest right in a strategic area--we thought it was pretty much an act of genius.

good times with our favorite peeps--we heart joel!

You are so funny!

I am ashamed to admit that I don't know who he is and I have never even heard of his show. I guess I need to start watching more TV.

Adam and Kristina said...

I am so jealous, I could cry right now. He was in Ogden about 8-9 months ago, and I didn't know! I heard about it a few days later, from some coworkers, and I wanted to punch them in the face. They too got pictures.

They told me some of the jokes he told (maybe not safe for work), and I was laughing so hard. I can only imagine hearing them in person.

P.S. If you don't read The Soup blog, you must start NOW.

Joellen said...

Minda I am so sorry to tell you that he had me to his left and had his arm around me and he touched my shoulder a few times. We are BFF's now for sure.
What a great night, Jared was sure that he was going to be a D-bag but he was sooooo nice. Loved it!

buddens said...

I'm so jealous! JMcH is great! Big panties = Big love for Joel. Nice touch.

And Maggiano's truly is the greatest! Clearly, I'm far out of the loop though because I thought the one in Boston was the only one out there ... turns out they're all over. Their house salad is something I crave every pregnancy.

Jennie Minor said...

you girls know how to have a good time. LOVE the panties. So funny!

Amy said...

I don't know what was more fun... the van ride down? dinnner with the dog look alike and getting sweated on by the scary druggy busboy? the naughty 17 year old opener? Joel McHale? Or the drive home until 2:30 a.m.- It was such a fun time... we need to talk about Denver? Caylor really missed out and I think he was sad. Thanks for the hook-up- I am glad there was a last minute cancelation and I was there and ready to party. SO Much Fun! It makes me miss living in St. George! Peace out!

Mother Goose said...

Me and the hubby have a standing date for The Soup every Friday night. We have tickets to see him here on Jan 16th, WOOHOO! and I am glad to hear his live show is so good.
Fun blog! I will have to bookmark you!
