A Beauty Queen Can’t be Called Pretty? Love Your Opinion

posted by Linda Mintle

Sportscaster, Brean Musburger, apologized for his comments about a football player’s girlfriend. During the Alabama/Notre Dame BCS National Championship Game, the camera found Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of the Alabama quarterback.

Upon seeing her on camera, Musburger commented,  ” Wow, you quarterbacks get all the good looking women, what a beautiful woman, whoa! If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops.”

So my question to you is this: Is this inappropriate to comment on the beauty of a woman? 

Could we do a little survey here? YES or NO and give me a brief reason why you think this was OK or out of line. 

I find this so weird as football promotes barely clad women to “cheer” for their teams and then makes a big deal about Musburger’s comment. Seems a little hypocritical to me. Maybe we should have the Dallas Cowboy organization apologize for objectifying their cheerleaders and putting them on calendars.

Personally, I find this to be the height of political correctness. The woman won a beauty contest! Yes, she is beautiful and that doesn’t mean pointing it out makes you someone who objectifies women.

I had more of an issue with his comment about young boys throwing footballs to get girls. That seems a bit shallow.

Just my opinions, love to hear yours.
