*WARNING: THIS POST WILL MOST LIKELY UPSET WOMEN. AND I’M SORRY.
So I’m not gonna lie, I probably watch more Sportscenter than I should. And the thing about it, is that i don’t even mind watching it again and again. I don’t mind watching the “Top 10” twice or even three times a night before I fall asleep.
But about a year ago I started to notice something. It began one Sunday while I was watching a football game and they threw it down to the woman announcer on the sideline. Then all of sudden Hannah Storm (pictured above) is hosting Sportscenter in the morning as one of the lead anchors. And just this past weekend I turn on another sports show that I watch, Nascar Now (yes I watch Nascar) and who was the host?? Nicole Briscoe.
I’m sorry ESPN. I love you. I really do, but there are just certain things that woman aren’t meant to do. And in my mind, one of them is being a sportscaster. It’s not that they aren’t capable to broadcast sports, because I know they are, it’s just that when I’m watching sports, I would rather see men talking about it.
And the interesting part on the Nascar show, is that there were never any female Nascar drivers until this year, and what do you know. First woman Nascar driver, followed by first woman Nascar sportscaster.
I just think we need to put a stop to this before Sportscenter is filled up with all female sportscasters. No more Kenny Mane, John Anderson, Scott Van Pelt, or Stuart Scott.
And the question becomes…will I still watch Sportscenter more than once? Sadly, probably not.
