    "Cox's hiring by ESPN means the job requirements of a football and basketball reporter for the finest sports media organization in the world are now two years of community college in rural North Carolina and achieving American Idol also-ran status. Just to be safe, you might also throw in obsessive overuse of Crest White Strips and bolt-on breasts."

    Am I missing something? Hasn't Heather Cox been on ESPN for some time now?

    Is she going to write for Page 2?

    Let's go down now to our sideline reporter Heather Cox, who has an interesting story about Mike Hunt, as well as what the fans think.

    I find it somewhat hypocritical that the "sportsbyBrooks" website, which features "over 6,000 photos of the sportsbyBrooks girls," is bitching about ESPN hiring this girl.

    Sometimes you wish Ron Burgandy's prediction that ESPN would be a cultural and financial disaster came through. Those times include right now. Just dump the fucking position if it's such a bullshit addition to your broadcast. But don't patronize me and suggest I'll watch UAB vs. Dicksmack State University because I've got some T&A every half hour on the sideline mispronouncing names and telling me the third string running back came back from a stubbed toe and, wow, what a story it would be if he had to go into the game.

    According to ESPN's web site, Heather Cox has been employed there since 1994. She also has red hair in her picture.

    So this one is wrong.

    If you go to the site, which is NSFW, a lot of kittens could get killed.

    Norby Williamson, ESPN's executive vice president for production says "The sideline reporter is our beat reporter. Sideline reporters are responsible for everything that takes place on the field beyond the telecast of the game."

    Now a real ass would say that puts this bimbo on par with all the hacks that have put in their dues to get on a D-1 or pro beat. Of course, I think this guy just has no idea what goes into beat reporting.
