Jen Floyd Engel No Longer Android

Fort Worth Star-Telegram former sports columnist Jennifer Floyd Engel left the paper earlier this year to become a national sports columnist on the FOX Sports web site. Now every time she writes about the Dallas Cowboys she receives several trillion comments from around the country telling her she’s a terrible writer, a witch, a moron who doesn’t understand the game, a Cowboys homer, etc.

She really rattled the cage today with “It’s cool to be a Romosexual again.”

But there’s something else I noticed. She’s changed her face again.

Last month, I blogged about Engel’s new gig (“Jen Floyd Engel Dodges Balls of Hate“) and noted the profile picture that accompanied her Star-Telegram column was changed to a leaner, meaner, tanner, more android portrait at FOX Sports.

I can only guess that my observations regarding Engel’s profile photo prompted her to make yet another change. She’s gone back to a softer, sweeter photo. Gone is Android Engel. Say hello to Urban Chic Engel.

In her new photo, she mixes the casual (jeans jacket) with the cosmopolitan (a scarf) and recaptures her sweet side with a new hairdo and softer makeup, while still retaining slight overtones of her short stint as an automaton.

The result?

MEET URBAN CHIC ENGEL...PART PROM QUEEN...PART ANDROID.

PART PROM QUEEN RUNNER-UP…PART TOMBOY…PART SOCIAL WORKER…PART STREETWISE GANGBANGER…WITH A HEART OF GOLD AND A PEN OF POISON.

Alas, changing her profile pic didn’t soften her readers’ attitudes. Her latest column, particularly the “Romosexual” phrase, went over like a skidmark on a wedding dress.

“Your headline honestly made me ill,” one reader commented. “If you’re going to write about football, then please do so without agitating unsuspecting people at work that are just looking for an update of the game.”

Another commenter was even more succinct: “Jen, go back to playing with your Barbies!”

    Go back to playing with your Barbies??? What idiot posted that?

    Leave it to some drunk, redneck, misogynistic Cowboys fan with a ‘third grade edumication’ to make all Cowboy male fans look like blithering idiots.

    I thought the Cowboys fan with the Taser at the NYJ game was the biggest dumbass on Earth, but we have a new winner!

    Prom Queen? When and stop trying to compare christanity and Muslim. Are you jealous because Tebow try’s his best to keep his faith? Are you communist or American? Stop trying to be like Kim Kardashian to get attention. Go get your girlfriend to show you attention. People like you and more are the reason our country is falling apart. No wonder sport articles aren’t exciting to read. Get a life. Only two things come out of Tx!
