|ESPN.com: Opinion||[Print without images]|
We were excited to see that the Onion noticed our debut last week. We loved the satirical take on what espnW was working on, but we were sorry that a few upcoming features were overlooked.
• They neglected to point out espnW's "Hot Stove" feature, where we suggest simple but tasty dishes to serve your hungry husband and sons while they watch their favorite basketball teams.
• "There Is Crying In Baseball" where we test waterproof mascaras and recommend the best ones for our female baseball fans upset at their team's performance.
• How about our "Behind the scenes at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoot," which we were forced to cover as a licensing requirement to legally host a sports website.
• We're engaging our audience, and hosting a Jan. 14 meet-up at a local sports bar to burn Ben Roethlisberger jerseys. And our bras.
• The right lingerie for your fantasy draft.
• Plus, any female fan has to know the proper way to bedazzle a professional-quality lycra blend sports jersey. Ray Allen's mom is really good at this.
We're also proud of the way we've tailored some of ESPN's most popular features to fit a female audience ...
• espnW's Power Rankings list NFL players based on five qualities of desirability: looks, loyalty, abs, willingness to watch chick flicks and, most importantly, salary.
• espnW's "Outside The Lines" gives viewers secret passwords to access internet sales on everything from pink jerseys to team-specific potholders and aprons. Never wait inside the lines again!
• Editor's note: If any of these stories ever actually appear on espnW, we'll all eat our little pink hats.
