NBC SportsTalk: Assessing the Kevin Youkilis trade

4 Comments

I was on NBC SportsTalk last night to talk about the Kevin Youkilis trade.

It’s not on this video, but the segment before mine had Amani Toomer on it. Toomer is as bald as a cueball, and just before we went on the air, I noted that a nice lady was applying powder to his head as he prepared. I usually think that having my studio in my basement is an advantage, but I gotta tell ya, having a nice lady apply powder to my bald head is a perk that may be worth travelling to Connecticut for future spots on the show.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
