It's the voice. My guess is, everyone who complains about Cammi Granato stumbling over facts and face-offs is really complaining about something else. It's the voice. We aren't used to the voice. Listening to Cammi Granato announcing hockey for the first time is like listening to your little sister tell a dirty joke. It's not believable. You don't get it. You want it to stop.

What: Women sportscasters There was a time when there were no women sportscasters. Women weren't even allowed in press boxes, which were male sanctums.

ABC hired Cheryl Tiegs because she was a supermodel. These days, women sportscasters are everywhere, and for the most part are hired for the right reasons--talent and work ethic.
