Erin Andrews spoke with Sports Business Daily today, and the sideline reporter talked about blogs, the relevance of sideline reporters and even her favorite websites. It's mostly the same standard responses you've heard from the Internet's most popular and boring interview subject, but she did have one reply that was different.
When asked about ESPN's a potential move to the entertainment side of things, she had this to say....
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?I can't say that I'm surprised. I mean when your two favorite sites are People.com and TMZ.com, AND you're an attractive female, your path is basically laid out in front of you. I could honestly see EA with Kevin Frazier on Entertainment Tonight within the next two years.
Andrews: I’m enjoying right now where I am on the sidelines. I like being part of the action. A lot of people bring up to me maybe entertainment, maybe studio and I’m never going to turn up my nose at any of that stuff but I think the one thing for me is I love being a part of the drama. Whether it’s on the field, court, if it’s a big injury that we have to follow and I’m at Ohio State’s hotel at 5am the day of the USC game, I love that stuff. I like the rush of it all. I love following stories and getting to know the players and them telling you the inside scoop. It’s really a good time for me. I love being a snoop, seeing what the coaches are saying or watching the trainers try to hide stuff from me that they’re bringing out for an injured player. It’s just really fun.
