We take a short break from discussing college football expansion, the NBA playoffs, and the Alex Smith/Cam Newton feud to discuss a more local story. For several weeks members of the Mac Attack crew and listeners have been working to solve a mystery involving one of their own. I now have confirmation and breaking news that exposes the truth and confirms some rumors.
It was first reported weeks ago that Jim Celania had a female companion at his home in Cotswald when he missed several shows. Immediately Chris ‘Mac’ McClain, Travis ‘T-Bone’ Hancock, and Colin Hoggard went to work on the case. T-Bone began using the internet to help as he searched the Old Man’s 5,000 friends on Facebook. Mac believed T-Bone may have solved the case when he pin-pointed the search to a red-headed woman from the west coast, however there was no physical proof other than speculation.
The Mac Attack duo enlisted the help of the WFNZ Flash Girl Brittney Cason. She took to Twitter using her investigative skills to crack the case. Hashtags #operationfigureoutwhoJimsgfis and #specialagentflashgirl have been floating around. A further look into Twitter shows the Old Man himself admitted he “strained a lip working out in my off-show conditioning program” on May 3rd adding fuel to the fire.
Even Brett Jensen, who has contacts all over Charlotte and the sports world, could not assist in the search to find out who the mystery woman is. More recently a listener (who goes by the name ‘Terrapin Wes’) put down his race and sports book odds to report on Celania’s Cotswald neighbors complaining of “loud and sensual” music blaring from Blue’s garage on Thursday afternoon, another day that Jimmy missed the show.
After receiving numerous texts, emails, and tweets, we can confirm through our sources at Superior Car Service, the woman not only exists, but there could be MORE THAN ONE! Different drivers for the transportation company, that has provided services for Jim Celania for many years, have acknowledged driving at least TWO different women from the airport to and from his house in Charlotte. Speaking anonymously three drivers familiar with the Old Man confirmed two red-headed women, one dark red hair and one light red hair, being taken to and from his house in the last several weeks. One went so far as to say “My guess is he doesn’t want this public to ruin the situation he has with multiple women.”
I stopped by Jim’s house and saw him pulling “Greyboy” up the driveway and when asked about the women visiting his house Celania had this to say: “It’s none of your business who I have or don’t have at my house.”
Please listen to the Mac Attack every weekday morning for more breaking news on Jim’s love life.
