World Cup

World Cup

Is your local World Cup commentary an all-male panel? Ours isn't! Lately we've had Petra Manner hosting the pre- and post-game analysis. Then yesterday during the Spain-Russia match, there was another woman giving the voice-over commentary on the game (I've tried to find her name but can't. They only list Matti Härkönen but there was for sure a woman speaking as well!).

I find the presence and contributions of these women very welcome since World Cup so easily turns into an all-male space.

This World Cup has been so much fun, though. All these underdog teams upsetting former champions and ruining my bracket! I know this happens every time (Korea-Turkey third-place match in 2002, anyone?), but it's always exciting to see it unfold. This year with female commentary!
