In her wrap-up, she'll probably quote John Downdike.

DATELINE, halftime: Leave it to NBC's sideline bimbette, Alex Flanaganwho, in her pregame commentary, quoted "F. Scotts Fitzgerald"*to chronicle the first "momentum shift" of Super Bowl XLIII.

* I played it back and listened very carefully. She clearly said Scotts.

I read two articles in the N.Y. Times and Washington Post, respectively, that said that women have hit the glass ceiling in sports broadcasting. There are no female play-by-play broadcasters in male pro sports. Most are still sideline reporters. Oh...well.

Ms. Flanagan is on the NFL Network as a rotating host. And I notice her work schedule tends to pick up there during the off-season.
