So this morning I see people have reached this site by searching for “Jenny Dell Fired.” And I thought “this would be a bombshell if that actually happened, the internet LOVES itself some Jenny Dell. Anytime the NESN hostess for Boston Red Sox games does something…it’s news. Believe me, it’s worth posting about.
Not difficult to see why once you’ve seen pics of Jenny Dell, a former UMass cheerleader in action. Well, right now there seems to be zero traction at all to the rumors of Dell being dismissed. Not that I thought there was any truth to those rumors, (here’s why she left the broadcast in midseason, and when she returned) but I found something if not newsworthy, at least amusing:

I know that a high percentage of this site’s readers are sports media professionals; so many of you are aware of the approximately 25:1 guy to girl ratio in the sports media business. Because of this reality, we created an insider term called “press box hot.” I think you can draw a straight line on what that means. Factor in that most sports writers are extremely unattractive and excessively overweight (these three gentlemen are pretty good looking by sportswriter standards, believe me they are), and that an increasing percentage of the women hired in sports media are ex-cheerleaders like Jenny Dell, Amanda Pflugrad or Michelle Besiner. Or former bikini models like Jenn Brown or Melanie Collins, and the “looks gap” between the men and women, and the idea of “press box hot” becomes ever more unintentionally hilarious.
It should be noted that Jenny Dell is not “press box hot.” She’s normal hot, everyday hot, regular situation hot. Jenny Dell would look hot even at a swimsuit pageant even. By the way, here’s video of Jenny Dell chewing out a Red Sox fan, deservedly so for walking into here live shot. Oh, and if you want Jenny Dell to work your fantasy football draft, here’s how. It’ll cost you $1,500.
