Women Talking Sports
Us gals are all used to seeing and hearing the guys out there talking about sports. On the field, off the field, on TV, radio, cable. It’s a man’s world. But women are a large percentage of sports fans and for some reason, they are not represented … until now. Sure, women reporters have been on the scene and allowed in the locker rooms for some time now. However, there are not many websites or blogs out there by women. With the Super Bowl coming up, Hockey, Basketball, Skiing…. there are tons of things to cover let alone the rise in women’s sports. If any of this interests you in the least, here are three websites that you should know about that will help you stay connected from a women’s point of view.
The Sports Brat
TheSportsBrat.com is the girl’s guide to game day.
There is a new generation of women sports fans on the horizon and they are not just covering volley ball.
Meet Jess Ceresino – The Sports Brat.com. Jess writes about sports from a girl’s point of view. For instance, she went to New York to attend and cover the Annual College Football Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel or she’ll talk about game day fashion or even tailgate treats. BUT… most of her site is sports news, interviews and reports on schedules and sporting events which are delivered in a way that women want to read it.
Recommendation: Check her out. You’ll like Jess.. a lot. She speaks our language.
