Women in Sports vs. Workplace
While she's a talented woman, I have a problem with women sports reporters, journalists, etc. and for sure "cheerleaders" because guys I know use sports as an escape from the "outside world."
Picture this scene: You're a guy in a law firm or bank and you work 40-50 hours a week maybe more with women on projects, cases, deals, etc. You want to chill with the guys after work (7 -1030 pm) and then you see a Mara Liasson lookalike on your TV screen reporting from the Cell or Wrigley Field. Doesn't exactly sound or look like an escape to me.
Women have their "escapes" and very few men wish to join in those activities (make-up, clothes, shopping). Let us have our escape (as long as it isn't criminal).
