ESPN Body Issue 2012

11 Jul

The ESPN body issue is always a little conflicting for us here at National Skirt Day. Obviously everyone enjoys a fit girl. If she’s so jacked that she could clearly kick the shit out of you, then you’re in trouble. This dilemma is one that is common when playing hot or not with the girls of the ESPN Body Issue. Check out the pics below and see for yourself.

Hump Day Links of the Week

Former Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk posed for MeinmyPlace a couple weeks ago. If you haven’t heard of the website Me in My Place, you need to go there immediately.  If you stay on it for less than 3 hours you should be punched in the face.  The site takes random girls (not famous) and shoots them in their apartments, in varying degrees of undress (but no full nudity).  Esquire picked up on them and did a full story, and now they also feature models doing the same thing.  What an idea.  MeinmyPlace

ESPN scribe Bill Simmon’s launched his website Grantland today, a mix of sports and pop culture.  Simmons’ first article is a classic. Grantland

Turd Ferguson Blog apparently has something called “Titty Tuesday.”  I just fired three writers from NSD for not thinking of this first. Turd Ferguson Blog

A hot girl doing handstands for a minute and  a half.  I realize this sounds stupid, but…it’s not.  I just watched this three times in a row.  iBlackedOut

As you might have heard Lenny Dykstra was just busted for trying to steal a car.  Here’s a long but interesting article from ESPN a couple years back profiling Lenny, from his great baseball career, his initial success as a “stock picker,” and then his inevitable collapse.  Dykstra sounds like Charlie Sheen without the porn stars.  ESPN

The Girls of ESPN

17 May

Growing up, there was only one kind of reporter on ESPN: the loud and witty male personality (see Chris Berman, Keith Olbermann, Rich Eisen, Stuart Scott).  Sure, some women have always had roles on ESPN, but they were strictly regulated to women’s sports and at the most, WAC college football games.  Since its launch in 1972, ESPN has grown from a tiny cable network into the worldwide leader for sports broadcasting.  One channel has given way to ESPN2, ESPNClassic, ESPNews, ESPNU, ESPN 360, ESPNtheOcho, and I’m sure many others I don’t even know exist.  From one studio in Bristol, Connecticut, the network now broadcasts from LA, Miami, New York, and Charlotte.  But the biggest change in ESPN?  The women.  A few years back WNBA announcers gave way to the best invention since that flavored popcorn powder they get you at the movie theater: the sideline reporter.  Stuck watching a Redskins-Bengals Monday Night Football game with the score 3-0 in the 3rd quarter, quick let’s cut to….Erin Andrews on the sideline!  What a breath of fresh air.  And now it’s not just sideline reporters. Women host SportsCenter, report on the NFL labor negotiations, and host their own shows.  While I am with the rest of the American male population there’s nothing worse than hearing Pam Ward commentating a game, I fully support these hot and smart women infiltrating ESPN’s male dominated culture.  As next week marks the release of Those Guys Have All the Fun, the behind-the-scenes, tell-all novel of the sports network’s humble beginnings all the way to the behomoth it is today, we here at NSD thought it was the perfect time to look at all the of the women working for ESPN today.

We’ll start with Erin Andrews, easily the hottest woman sports reporter of all time. Continue reading
