Once in a while we'll still get to a game. But we mostly watch our college sports on TV these days. Saturday afternoons in the fall are filled with college football. And then it's college basketball. It's almost always on in the background as we do our Saturday chores. It's comforting. Until, that is, I hear the sound of a woman's voice commentating. I don't know why. I myself am a woman. I'm all for equal rights, equal pay, respect, and all that stuff. Just not where sports commentating is concerned. It just seems wrong. It grates on my nerves and kind of diminishes the happiness I get from watching college sports. It's just one of those things I'm really not able to rationally explain. Don't get me wrong. I like Erin Andrews. I think most women sideline reporters are fine. Just don't do play by play or color commentating. Please.
And I guarantee you that if a man just said what I wrote, I'd be really mad. Go figure.
