Kellie Pickler says she does not have a tight end

Kellie Pickler blew me off Tuesday.

I was groping for celebrity picks for our special section and ran into the former “American Idol’’ contestant and current “Tonight Show" correspondent at the Fox Sports news conference.

No dice. Pickler and her producer politely but firmly informed me she does not do picks. Something about not wanting to take sides or, oh, heck, I don’t know.

Pickler sounded a lot like Dolly Parton, and certain other aspects of her presentation reminded me of Ms. Parton.

Anyway, I eavesdropped on her conversation with Fox’s Pam Oliver. She told Pam she doesn’t know much about football.

Pam helpfully handed her a straight line: “Do you know what a tight end is?’’ she said.

Said Kellie: “I ain’t got one of those.’’
