    Wow, that was a bad story.
  3. Second that emotion.
  4. Actually, the lede was the only readable part of that story.

    She seems like a really nice person, though.

    Shakespeare, it's not, but I don't think I'd call it bad. Exceedingly average, maybe. It is what it is - a quickie fluff filler on a famous local resident to fill space through the holidays.

    Um, no. But it is the first thing most people think when they see Erin Andrews, so you might as well get it out there in the first graf.
  8. She is.

    And I disagree about it being a bad story. It was horrendous.

    Yeah. Talked to her on the phone and she was very gracious. Didn't try to big time me at all. Lots of male TV guys try to do that. Especially the ones who aren't big.

    This is a major-metro approach to a story? The assigning editor let the reporter down here.

    I didn't think the lead was bad at all. Although, I can see how people might view it as too cutesy or whatever. It was a fun, goofy lede to a fluff story. Plus, like all good ledes, it summed up the whole story and it addressed what everyone was thinking about when they saw a story about Erin Andrews.

    Also, maybe I'm naive, but I thought one of the most shocking parts was when she said that married hockey players kept asking her out.

    The fact that pro athletes cheat on their wives surprises you?
