Anna-Vision Sportscenter

Have video of Anna Kournikova playing at all times during Sportscenter
  (+2, -3)
(+2, -3)
  [vote for,

One of my roommates sometimes watches Sportcenter on ESPN, especially when a major tennis championship is going on, for no other reason than to hopefully catch a glimpse of some footage of Anna Kournikova playing (although she inevitably loses in the early rounds). She is a huge draw for men around the world (and let's not kid each other, it's for her body, not her tennis playing), so why not use that for your advantage?

I think Sportscenter could install a strip at the bottom of the screen, just above the sports-score ticker and maybe twice as thick, showing nothing but Anna Kournikova playing tennis or just lying around. This might not even be enough, however. It would be best if Anna could be given the entire screen, except for the sports-score ticker. Yes, I know, but what about the sports? Well, we don't have to hear Anna, so all the audio would be supplied by the ESPN anchors while we're watching Anna. I know this would turn off women and even some men, but I bet it pulls in plenty more people who are not very interested in sports, but tune in just for the girl. There could even be a 5-minute segment at the end where they actually show a few hightlights for people who like to "see" that sort of thing.

Subsitute Ann Widdecombe for Anna Kournikova on this channel. [Aristotle, Jun 19 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]


       Hmm, sounds like you have re-invented radio from scratch using nothing but a TV and a video feed of a very telegenic tennis player. Using the same argument news programmes could just shows videos of hot female politicians like Anne Widdecombe.

       How can you sugest such a thing - I'm going to vote against this whole idea just for that.
RobertKidney, Jun 19 2001

       You're voting against [smizzou]'s idea because of [Aristotle]'s annotation?
angel, Jun 20 2001

       I'm shocked too - Ann Widdecombe is a fine figure of womanhood and probably the best leader the Conservatives failed to elect. She is perfect for arousing the visual senses of political junkies - Politicos of London constantly sells out of Widdecombe knickers.

       Perhaps video cameras inserted into the court so you can see up Anne's skirt. It seems much of the web is already devoted to such viewing.
benfrost, Jun 20 2001

       Is it wrong that I just read that annotation as "Perhaps video cameras inserted into the court so you can see up Anne's skirt"?   

       Isn't there a digital BBC Parliament channel? Perhaps this could be adapted in the style of [smizzou]'s idea, but to feature Miss Widdecombe instead of Miss Kournikova?

       Not mine, it's really a lame 'idea'. What's with the pubes lately?
thumbwax, Jun 20 2001

       Is Aristotle scaring anyone else? God only knows how Anne Widdecombe got voted at no. 500 in FHM's Sexiest Women poll.   

       This year Anna Kournikova won't be playing at Wimbledon through injury. I doubt that will stop the British tabloids covering the sports section with pictures of her. Still, no complaints from me!
CoolerKing, Jun 20 2001

       Perceptive FHM readers ...
Aristotle, Jun 20 2001

       Yes, [waugs]. It is the current fad for MPs and local councillors to use the word 'surgery' to refer to an occasion when their constituents have the opportunity to speak to them. I hate it, too.
angel, Jun 20 2001

       Stanstead and Heathrow would both be appropriate for people planning to fly in and meet Ann Widdecombe in person during one of her surgeries. As previously indicated she does *not* treat tennis elbow at such sessions ...

       So, if this does happen, then will you put a guy in the other corner for us girls? I mean, what are we supposed to do? Sit there and stare mindlessly at a girl running around on a tennis court? Give us something to look at to. C'mon Matt, be considerate.
