Hate Mail From A Hooker....

Monday, February 04, 2008

Wow. Just wow. I wrote a couple correspondence pieces about the Super Bowl for the Chicago Tribune Red Eye this past weekend. I've received a few emails from people who tracked me down following links from my website or searching the web for my name. All have been nice, simple notes from people saying they'd enjoyed my writing or in a few cases, people wondering where I got the Bears shirt I wore for the articles. One email, however, quickly caught my attention.

I inserted [sic] wherever necessary, so you're aware that the mistakes are hers and not transcription errors.

Sarah...

I came across your page while googling for information regarding football and then also went to your MySpace page. I was rather disgusted by the way you portray women who are avid sports fans and also women that work in the sports industry as myself [sic]. Do you really expect to come off as a serious journalist with the way you poster yourself up on your websites like a wannabe playmate. [sic] It's not cute.

You come of [sic] as a slutty sports groupie who is trying so hard be noticed.

Also your writings are not up to par, that may explain why you haven't really done much with your career. Frankly you are too think [sic] in the mid section [sic] & nowadays every women [sic] has big breasts so you displaying them in every shot is not anything special.

I sincerely think that you went into this business for the wrong reasons. So you know a lot about the Bears...big deal. It's not hard to get information you need online.

I get numerous offers to pose for magazines but I decline because I want to be taken serious [sic] not as some drunk partying wannabe sports groupie.

You set a horrible example to young girls and women in general.

Think about it.

I dealt with a fair amount of backlash during last year's Super Bowl craziness, so I've got a pretty thick skin about this kind of thing. I'm certainly not going to worry about insults to my writing if they're coming from someone who can't write a simple e-mail without misspellings, grammatical errors and punctuation problems. I'm fine with the face that some people are going to dislike anyone who has the confidence to put herself out there and be love or hated by the public. I'm also well aware that some people are offended by my completely natural, but frequently displayed chest. People who don't know me might misread my sense of humor or the pictures on my MySpace. The truth is, I always lead with my brain, not my looks, and, when given the choice, I've always chosen being funny over being sexy. You can't please everyone and, to be honest, I wouldn't want to try.

Sometimes when I get letters like this, I'll take a minute and see if the author is who he/she claims to be and if he/she has a MySpace or a personal website. In this case I wanted to see if this "Lora" woman was actually involved in the sports industry, as she claims. A quick Google and MySpace search of her name provided far too many results, so I thought I'd try her e-mail address. What I discovered was so perfect it was as if the story had been penned by a Hollywood screenwriter (a non-striking one, of course). See below:





Now I understand. Lora, it turns out, is a sports professional--or as the oldtimers call it, a "sporting girl." To read more about Lora and her "sporty" friends, go to FindALay.com or click here:

If you'd like to contact her directly, you'll notice that her phone number and email address (aha!) are listed at the bottom. Perhaps you'd like to take her to a game or--even better--why not take her to a night class for people learning English as a second language. She might be able to get some much-needed help with her writing. Lord knows she'll need it if she wants to succeed in the fast-paced, competitive world of whoring sports.
