Continued: C.J.: For Diana Ross fans, ain’t no distance far enough

There was an unsettling sight at the MyTalk107.1FM ice cream giveaway by show hosts Jason Matheson and Alexis Thompson Tuesday on Peavey Plaza.

From afar I observed Matheson talking to a guy whose back was to me. My immediate assessment of the energy level told me this: Jason is flirting with that guy. Not good. Matheson became engaged to Collin Haas in October.

When the guy with whom Matheson was dallying turned around, I probably still had a pained expression on my face. I still didn’t recognize the man as Haas, but it was. The U employee has a new haircut. Very nice.

Whew. When I told them what had gone through my mind, Haas said, “You’ve got my back?” ’Deed, I do.

Another observation from the ice cream giveaway — 55 degrees may not be warm enough for this social because product was not flying off the truck, stocked by Big Bell Ice Cream. Or maybe passersby were suspicious of people standing on the street and giving away ice cream. It’s also possible that Thompson’s being dressed up like a tongue (don’t ask) was scaring people.


C.J. can be reached at and seen on Fox 9’s “Buzz.” E-mailers, please state a subject; “Hello” does not count. Attachments are not opened.
