Kremer vs. Kramer

Andrea Kremer, who has been ESPN's Los Angeles-based reporter for the past 17 years, agreed last week to become a sideline reporter for NBC's Sunday Night Football.

A two-time Emmy Award winner, Kremer will join NBC's announcing team of Al Michaels and John Madden.

Kremer is a seasoned reporter — the Los Angeles Times has called her "the best TV interviewer in the business of covering the NFL" — and will do a great job. (Assuming it is possible to do useful sideline reporting, which it probably isn't.)

What? They're not bringing back Dickerson? Why?

Plus, she's hasn't yet transitioned to shamless corporate shill. (Suzy Kolber, I'm looking in your direction.)

I wish I could be a shameless corporate shill. It looks like very easy money.

Here, let me try:

"There's no water filter like a Brita water filter. It's a leader in the industry, and subtley associates itself with the sports that you enjoy watching on the teevee. Also, it's very manly."

How did I do?

God, I miss Dickerson!

What was the LA Times smoking? Its bad enough all the newtorks seem to feel the need to have women as their sideline reporters but damn! At least get someone who doesn't look like your grandmother, and can ask a player a question without getting prompted from her earpiece!
