Because we like women almost as much as we like sports. (But we still won’t watch the WNBA)
10. Michelle Tafoya
I’m not sure how hot she is because they normally cut to her right after John Madden, who may or may not have Han Solo bound in carbonite in his basement, and Al Michaels, who looks to be undergoing some kind of mummification process. Either way, it’s a welcome reprieve to see Michelle describe a torn ACL.
[Editor's Note: When bored, try singing "Michelle Tafoya to the tune of Culture Club's "I'll Tumble For Ya. Your coworkers will like you very much.]
9. Bonnie Bernstein
Although she dresses like a stuffed animal you receive at Christmas, there’s no mistaking her hotness. She roams the sidelines bringing us expert insights such as “The Crimson Tide are down seven with thirty seconds left. They’re going to need a touchdown to tie this up.
8. Pam Oliver
She’s cute enough that you forget to laugh when she says stuff like “The Jets players have said they will settle for nothing less than an appearance in the Superbowl. And, if you like lips, there’s none better. Her delivery of “Trainers say Farve may have pulled his groin, spawned letter writing campaigns from conservative activists.
7. Tony Siragusa
What? The man has, by far, the nicest rack on this list.
6. Lisa Guerrero
A pioneer in the field. Some consider her the Michael Jordan of hot sideline reporters. Unfortunately, much like Jordan, she’s gotten older and is now experiencing the “12 points per game for the Washington Wizards portion of her career.
5. Melissa Stark
Her girl next door look makes you think she might actually go out with you. Then you look down and realize your medicine ball-sized gut is covered in pork grease and Cheeto dust. But don’t give up hope, Dan Dierdorf is probably free this weekend.
4. Jill Arrington
We don’t know what this has to do with anything, but she’s Dakota Fanning’s aunt.
3. Erin Andrews
After coming into her own as a college football and basketball analyst, Erin was voted sexiest sportscaster of 2007 by Playboy. We haven’t seen the list, but we’re going to go ahead and assume Tony Siragusa came in second.
2. Maria Sansone
For some reason ESPN and NESN only feel like putting Maria on TV every once in a while, which leaves us with just one question: Why do ESPN and NESN hate our freedom?
1. Lisa Dergan
It’s not often you get a sideline reporter who’s also a Playboy Playmate and a one-time St. Paulie Girl. And maybe that’s a good thing for the sports world. Would you rather watch oozing sexuality on your TV screen, or Bills vs. Lions?
