Default RCI seeks nominations for Godmother for Freedom of the Seas

In this article http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9085102/ Royal Caribbean is doing a nationwide search for nominations for the Godmother of Freedom opf the Seas. There is a form to fill out to submit your nomination. The 5 finalists will be chosen by Royal Caribbean and on TV she will be chosen. Let's have our own informal nominations here.

I respectfully submit Brittney Spears for the new Godmother of the Freedom of the Seas. 8)

Really? Britney Spears? You are nuts. I believe they are looking for everyday people as nominations. Not celebrities. That is the point of this contest. And by the way...I watched Richard Fain on Today this morning, and it was very dissapointing. Nothing new on the ship. That had a huge model of the Freedom behind him, and only showed the Flowrider and H20 zone. I wish they would show us the rest already.

Well, I think she is hot and that is why. All I have seen is the drawings so far too but the animation is pretty good on the website. I will get on her someday, (Freedom not Brittney) but for now I am packing for Enchantment for the Seas next week!!

I think the selection should be by drawing of all the women who regularly post on CM

sorry Dave the wave...you cannot enter your girl because you cannot be objective about her qualifications (BG)

Since it doesn't say that the "Godmother" has to be a woman (it says "person"!), I nominate Jim Bragg! He's about as much a an "everyday" person as anyone I've ever known!

Yes, Godmother is a woman, as in Brittney Spears. They don't call it Godfather.

Since nobody has any better ideas, it looks like Brittney will be the Godmother of Freedom of the Seas. Such wholesome looks and great smile and such a great role model, she is perfect for it! 8)

Thanks, Venice. How about the webcam in Galveston? Pretty cool. As soon as Brittney ditches this Federline dud, I will give her a call again. She will make a great Godmother. If Whoopey Goldberg can be a Godmother of a ship, then so can Brittney Spears!

Dave--why no recent pictures of Britney. The photos you posted are from when she was wholesome. While I will agree that she is a very pretty girl, she seems to be a bit more "trashy" nowadays. I also do not find her to be a role model to "good girls." If my daughter were younger, Britney Spears is NOT the person I would want her to have as a role model.

But if the choice for Godmother were Britney and let's say Kathie Lee Gifford, I would definitely pick Britney.

Cheryl, Don't tell anyone (but everything I write on here is tongue in cheek).

Yes, there are more trashy photos of her but that is just an act. She is down to earth and very wholesome It's that loser boyfriend she needs to dump. I read today he is trying to record some rap.

All I know is one week from tomorrow, I will be waking up in Jamaica!!

Dave the Wave..Good News..I ran into Brittany at the FEMA office today where she was applying for a FEMA trailer to place in her back yard so you and the boys can come stay with her..She indicated that she is honored that you have nominated her for Godmother of the Freedom, but indicated she read the small print of the rules and it indicated that the nominee must be of high moral character and withstand a background check that should not reveal anything embarrassing for either herself or the person (in this case you) who nominated her..she wanted to spare you the embarrassment of making public your CIA file (VBG)

Yes, the webcam experience was really cool, but I'm upset because after watching it minute by minute for over an hour with no moment, I went to the bathroom and stop to check the last minute of the Saints-Bears game and came back and the Conquest was gone and it was dark

I actually nominated Rosa Parks to be Godmother for the Freedom and since she just recently passed suggested that a young girl from Montgomery Alabama be chosen to represent Ms Parks. When you think of Freedom in this country, one thinks of Ms Parks..Of course knowing Royal Caribbean, they will opt for the "safe" bet and select Martha Stewart since she has a greater appreciation of Freedom (VBG)

Since you are going on a cruise in a short while, perhaps as a way of meeting your fellow (hint-female) passengers, you can hold your own auditions for Godmother..we must continue to work with you to overcome your Brittany obession on this board as our friend Jim Bragg has suggested more then once

That is a good idea Venice. I can hold interviews in my cabin. I don't think felons are eligible, so Martha is out even though she is not bad for an older broad. Can I nominate more than one person?

I have to continue packing with only five days left, I jhave to go to the liquor store. I have two more sessions in the tanning bed to even up my tan lines for the new speedo. I need to get one of my kids to use my hair trimmer on my back and get some more music on my i-pod. I have to practice for kareoke and have been working on my belly flop form.

Dave---I agree she needs to DUMP that thing she married. Don't know what makes him think he is a recording artist. Oh, well, another way to waste Britney's money. I do wish her luck with the new baby. I'm sure she'll make a great mom.

Hope your personal interviews go well. Can't wait to see the photos of the new speedo.

Anyway, have a great time on your cruise (have a feeling you will). Try and be good . I know that will be hard for you. Be safe. Wouldn't want anything to happen to Britney's number 1 fan.

Dave the Wave..I suggest you hold Godmother auditions in the ship's chapel.it's safer that way..Perhaps in honor of your multiple voyages on the SOS, they will make you honorary Godfather, in exchange for keeping your speedo's at home
