Women

I watched the Golden Gophers nearly embarrass themselves on national television today (ESPN 2), almost losing to a crappy Syracuse team.  I need to zip Tim Brewster an e-mail to remind him that an offensive line is required for 11 man football.  The Gophers are as one dimensional as any team can get.  They will be lucky to win two of their three non-conference games.  They will, of course, get their asses kicked when they start their Big Ten schedule, just like they do every year.  I look for them to end the season 2-10; maybe 3-9 if they can beat South Dakota State, but that's far from a given.

Anyway, my favorite commentator, Pam Ward, Member of the High Order of Exhalted She-Males*, did the play by play for the Gophers game.  Because of her, my football acumen is much more savvy.  Thanks Pam, you're the best.


 
Pam Ward, football expert.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind women commentators in football as long as they have some football knowledge (Michelle Tafoya); or are likeable (Pam Oliver); or are just plain hot (Erin Andrews).
  
Erin Andrews: just looking for an excuse to post her picture on my blog!

* In case you're wondering, the President of the High Order of Exhalted She-Males is, of course, Suzy Kolber.

 
Suzy Kolber... um, I think?

Annoying commentators or not, it is great to see real football back on the tube... and we are just five days away from the start of the NFL season, and just six days away from my first fantasy football draft.
How could any human being possibly not love this time of year?

  1. I really liked Pam Ward's comment about the big offensive line of Minnesota. She said, "they average over 300 lbs. And that's per lineman." No shit Pam. Isn't that what an average is. What a fucking dike.

  2. A Funny Good Post. There must be a cosmic force out there regarding the start of football and women since I also have had the same recent inspiration for my blog.

    However, I think I'll stick to the national televised eye candy for watching female sports commentators.
