I appreciate your comments about Suzy Kolber. Truly I do. Running the risk of sounding totally spineless, I’ll go ahead and concede that Suzy knows her stuff. She is clearly passionate about what she does and works very hard, indefatigably even. I know that it can’t be easy being a woman in the field of sports broadcasting. My comments about Suzy were more about personality, kind of like saying you prefer golden retrievers to cocker spaniels. Not saying cocker spaniels aren’t good dogs, I just prefer a joyous, lumbering 100 pound dog to a frisky, lap sized, wavy haired licker. Perhaps I was too harsh on Suzy. I don’t want to be seen as having anything in common with the imbecilic vitriol of Andy Rooney.
I know that there are plenty of people who prefer dainty, mild mannered girls. I am nearly 6 feet of straight talking tomboy. I have plenty of detractors. Plenty. I agree with and appreciate your sentiment that we are all entitled to our opinions. Or am I opening up another can of worms? For the record I think Melissa Stark and Robin Roberts are great. Along with a number of other female sportscasters. Would you agree that Jeanne Zelasko is annoying?
Let’s do this, Greenbay is playing Minnesota tonight. I’m a huge Favre fan, you’re a Kolber fan. We can combine the two and both be happy.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post and respond. I really do appreciate it!
