Thanksgiving Tribute to These Working Women in Sports

DCC

Day 26: I'm thankful for these hot Rant Sports chicks.

Yes, that time of year is here to cheer. Both the football and basketball seasons are in full swing without baseball after the MLB season wrapped up, with the NFL and NCAAF approaching the end zone and the NBA and NCAAB having passed almost a month since tipoff. And let's not forget that the NHL season also started faceoff almost two months ago.

This week, our great U.S. of A will celebrate Thanksgiving, and most parts of the world will celebrate certain holidays and other cultural traditions. My gift to you for this holiday season kickoff is my thanks for the most wonderful women who work in the sports world.

These most fabulous females in the sports industry range from athletes-turned broadcasters to broadcaster-turned athlete wife to entertainer-turned sporting goods designer.

Some of these hotties have had their own share of performance prowess in their respective sports, some share the news on sports and one makes sports look good. Overall, these sports ladies all look good, but most of all, they give sports a good name.

The perfect combination of a working girl whose career revolves around sports involves her knowledge about sports – at the very least, the ones that she is paid to cover – and her own athletic practice. What I mean by this is that she takes care of her body. Even if she does not compete in a professional league, she indeed is seen when she is exposed to sporting events, as they come with the territory. Therefore, she must maintain a pretty fit physique.

Both brains and beauty embody all of these babes, so enjoy this eye candy and your holidays. I'm also thankful for you Rant readers and supporters for making my ranting rewarding and writing worthwhile.

This Dallas Cowboys representative does double-duty for the "Boys" as the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader who has racked up the most years (six) and the only female co-host of Talkin' Cowboys. She topped my Top 15 America's Sweethearts list. An athlete, check. An attractive athlete, double-check. An attractive athlete who knows her football, triple-check.

This ESPN’s First Take female co-host got her first break as a Tennis Channel sideline reporter. She is the moderator between Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless, so she scores extra points in my book to put up with their rants for about a year already.

With a last name like Champion, this UCLA English degree-graduate, who played basketball and ran track growing up, already was born a winner.

This FOX Sports broadcaster who covers football not only has her share of appearances reporting on camera, but I'm sure that she has made constant cameos in her fans' fantasies, especially when some perv filmed a peephole video of her. Creepy crazies aside, this former ESPN reporter and Florida Gators dancer who also appeared on Dancing with the Stars has gone far in her sports career.

Even when it’s cold outside, this FOX-y lady still warms… Or dare I say, heats up the field. Recently, Self recently released Andrews' Physique 57-inspired workout that keeps her in tiptop shape to soar through the sidelines. She also shared with Shape that she studies more in her sports journalism career than she did in college.

This former FOX Sports now-ESPN reporter already is a showstopper in her own right with her charm and by leading a sports-oriented career. Formerly known as Samantha Steele, this Liberty University alum now is also married into a pro league.

When she tied the knot with Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder almost one year ago, she became even more appealing (who knew that could be possible) – not necessarily because she is off the market, but because how laid-back, low-maintenance and low-profile she let her wedding day be. Far from being a Bridezilla, she dined with her new hubby at Arby's, of all places, after they got hitched in Hudson, Wis.

As if their marriage kickoff meal at the "good mood food" joint weren't enough, the new Mr. and Mrs. Ponder hit the hubby's offensive line's Ugly Sweater party afterwards. Romance and roast beef, anyone?

This actress has been added to many hot girl lists, and she is special in this Rant Girls slideshow for her love of sports. Not only is she a shining starlet through her silver and big screen performances, but also for her entrepreneurial nature as the founder and designer of Touch by Alyssa Milano, a company that targets female sports fanatics with MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL apparel and accessories. As a loyal Los Angeles Dodgers fan, she also has been fortunate to play in the most recent MLB All-Star Legends and Celebrity softball game, so watch her in action…
