Sherman's no sexist; that announcer's 'terrible'

This is a reply to Erin Morehouse's letter regarding women football announcers that was published in the Nov. 27 Leader.

I love football, especially the Oxford Wildcats.

I have been watching football every Saturday and Sunday for more years than I care to count.

I know the female announcer that Jim Sherman, Sr. was referring to in his column. She is on ESPN.

As a play-by-play announcer, she is terrible! I'm not sure she knows a lot about football. She has called many plays wrong.

I have had to shut the sound off sometimes or change the channel because I can't stand to listen to her. Many, many people that I've talked to agree.

There are many women working at football games, interviewing players and coaches. They are very good.

But I agree with Jim Sherman this one is terrible.

Also, Jim Sherman is not one to belittle women. He has always had great respect for women in the professional and business world. He's always encouraged women to excel.
