A Post About the Unfortunate and Sadly Unpreventable Sexism that Exists in Mexican Sports, Which Just Happens to Be Illustrated With a Photo of Inés Sainz in Really Tight Jeans

The sports editor recently sent us a heated memo demanding to know why we're covering up the Inés Sainz story. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Sainz is from Querétaro, and we've been dying for an excuse to run the photo of her, at left, working the field our local stadium. We have to admit, we always thought she was some kind of cheerleader or promo girl, and really had no idea she was a sportscaster. Anyway, the Mexican press has been up in arms about the indignities she's suffered for the mere crime of Working While Hot. In fact, our local Plaza de Armas newspaper ran a story a few days ago titled, "In the 21st Century, Women Continue Being Discriminated Against in Sports." The outraged subhed points out that Mexican female athletes "still suffer because of macho and discriminatory attitudes."


Of course, this ran just a couple pages away from the sports section's daily "Chica del Día" photo spread - this one featuring Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros, whose sporting talents, if she indeed has any, go unmentioned in the caption.

Check out Sainz's tit's in her professional attire for her interview on American television.

Best line "it's my size", jejejeje

Where is DorisMar when we need some professional broadcasters.

Interesting:

"This video contains content from FOX News Network, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

Fox News apparently hates Mexicans.

You CANNOT make this stuff up.

she has a weird shaped butt, or else she stone washes just the butt part of her jeans, which is a weird thing to do.

Terrible what those NY Jets did to Miss Sainz. Shame on them.

Hey Burro Hall, if you have a chance take a look at the piece I'm doing on Fulano/Arrowhead/Foncho in the paranoid thread on Baja Nomad. I'm also writing about Bob where I got a little information off this blog. How accurate is your information? Did you capture his ISP number or something like that? I think your information is right on, and I wanted to know if you had any other information .

Joe, Just Joe

I use to post on the "FF" files but I was banned, after he claimed he would never ban or censor anybody.

Anyway I enjoy your blog

Thanks, Triple-J. The info seems solid to me, insofar as once I posted it our none-too-bright hillbilly amigo suddenly went very quiet. ISP = 66.191.52
