The Jets not only lost last night, but they are also being investigated for harassment.
Now the question is going to come up about beautiful reporters and the uncomfortable issue of how athletes act around them.
However, there is a reason networks put good-looking people on TV: because folks like looking at good-looking people.
So here is a list of some of the most distractingly hot sideline reporting ladies ever.
She has been a mainstay at ESPN for quite a while. The younger viewers might see her as a possible cougar, but she was and remains a hottie.
While juggling her sideline reporting duties, she was also one of the Fox girls who had to serve her time on that Best Damn Awful Please Kill Me Sports Show.
I always get in trouble when using the words all-time and ever because folks say that the list then has to include old-school folks and international ladies.
So here is my nod to the folks who used to watch CBS football with Brent Musburger and Jimmy the Greek.
Jayne Kennedy was one of the pioneers of hot chicks in sports. Look her up if you don't believe me.
She was an All-Star in the WNBA before turning to broadcasting. That means she could probably take you one on one.
Yes, they have All-Stars in the WNBA.
Now you can catch her on the sideline with the mic in her hand.
Jill is another one who peaked too early. Not much has been seen of her lately, but she definitely was must-see back in her day.
Melissa has been on ESPN and NBC for years. Smart, professional, and one of the best of either gender.
And cute as a button.
She used to be Nicole Manske, but now some guy with the last name Briscoe is one of the luckiest guys around.
I like this pic of her doing the NASCAR thing. Not sure why, though.
Maybe it's the slightly disheveled look.
She also looked real cute in her racing outfit doing sideline duties.
Another name changer. We used to know her as Jillian Barberie, the kind of crazy sports reporter.
Wonder if marriage tamed her.
Lisa was a sideline reporter for Monday Night Football but left after one year under mysterious circumstances.
No mystery why she is on the list.
Heidi works for the Red Sox as a sideline reporter. There were rumors that she and catcher Jason Varitek dated, so I blame her for the Sox being in rebuilding mode.
Alex Flanagan has been getting the sideline stories for NBC for years. Even though she asks the tough questions, the coaches always stop to talk.
Another Fox young lady and BDSP alumna. Luckily she doesn't look worse for wear.
What can you say about Scott Podsednik? Pro ballplayer with a hot Playboy Playmate wife who loves sports and did sideline reporting.
I think if we're keeping score, he wins.
What? She actually works in sports! Trust me. Read her shirt.
Ms. Soto has been doing sideline for USC and Fox for a while and is one of my favorites.
We got to know Sara during the World Cup because she was dating one of the players.
You think she's biting on her finger deliberately, just to look sexy?
What else can be said? She is a legend in her own time.
Some say she is coming for EA's crown. Hmm.
Can they compete for it in a pageant or something? Just asking.
I could be biased here because I saw her in person.
She might have felt me staring at her from across the room. Not stalkerish, just as an admiring fan. Luckily she didn't have any pepper spray with her.
She has moved on from sideline work to more hosting.
I saw her in a recent interview, and she seems nice enough.
You think she's the reason the Jets lost last night?
That would be the definition of distraction.
I got complaints that this shot was missing...
