Another view on ESPN's Erin Andrews

With the Brewers battling for a playoff berth and the Packers sorting out their quarterbacks situation, local interest in ESPN's presentation of the Yankees-Rangers game Wednesday night may not be that intense.

Then again...

A few people may tune in to see what ESPN's Erin Andrews is wearing. Andrews, whose outfit created a stir last week at Miller Park, is scheduled to work the game.

Channel 4 sports reporter / anchor Jessie Garcia initially was unaware of Mike Nadel's column and the firestorm it created, but shared her thoughts on the situation in an e-mail to OnMilwaukee.com.

"After reading up on it, my take is that it was simply a poor choice of outfit," Garcia wrote. "Should she have known better? Yes. Any female journalist should want to be taken seriously for her journalistic knowledge and not her clothing.

"I don't know Erin at all, but I have admired some of her work. I would hope that she would want people to remember her words, her interviews and her quick mind much more so than her hemline. I know I do."

Channel 12's Stephanie Sutton said in an e-mail:

"I think the Chicago sports writer (Nadel) is a little jealous that (Andrews) can bring things out of the players that he can't. Maybe he's upset that he can't have that same working relationship with Lou Piniella.

"Do I think her dress that day was totally inappropriate? No. Do I think it was a bit much for a ballgame? Yes.

"For the most part, Erin dresses pretty conservatively considering she's a beautiful woman with a slamming body.

"It's just interesting to me that the big story that day was her ... and not the Cubs and Brewers. Like Trenni (Kusnierek) said in her remarks ... that's something every female sports reporter should avoid."

Andrews addressed the situation in an interview with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and here with Michael Hiestand of USA today.

Drew, when I heard you on B&B I'm imagining Sharon Stone's outfit from Basic Instinct. Seeing the picture now, I gotta say it's much ado about nothing. Though, someone's comment about being careful walking up and down the dugout stops was true.

Drew- You seem obsessed with this story. Let it go. I'm sure there has to be something more interesting to write about.
