Question: Who will write your column while you're mourning USC's loss to Texas in the Rose Bowl?

Answer: Two words for you, Shelby: Reggie Bush. Speaking of the big game on Jan. 4, anyone in AA-land interested in selling me a pair of tickets at cost or a little above? I'll give you a shout-out in AA. Heck, I'll even pose for a picture if you happen to run into me at Whole Foods or something. This offer expires Jan. 3 at midnight, so don't dilly-dally. I may even throw in an Ask Ausiello Ringer Tee, available now for pre-order exclusively at the TV Guide Store. Of course, that's if there are any left. I hear supplies are very limited and demand is through the frakkin' roof.
