You know it's bad when...

...your mother starts noticing the disparities in the coverage of women's and men's sports. Well I guess it's not the same for everyone's mother. My mother though is 1) not a huge sports fan and 2) probably would not self-identify as a feminist. I don't mean this in a bad way of course. She is a smart woman and it doesn't take that much to see what is going on. But people come up with numerous excuses and have blindsports when it comes to actually seeing inequality.
But my mother this afternoon, as I was channel surfing looking for coverage of the British Open, noted that it hasn't been on much and has been on at odd times. Today's coverage of the third round was less than two hours on ABC. My mother noted that the men's British Open that was contested a few weeks ago got extensive television time.
I didn't watch the men but I wouldn't be surprised if one day's worth of their coverage was greater than the three day combined (thus far) of the women's tournament.
And of course, looking at the leaderboard, it looked like things were very exciting today with previous leader Juli Inkster (going for the Super Grand Slam) had an off round shooting 2 over and falling three shots behind the leader Steinhauer and tied for second with three others. And Lorena Ochoa with low round of the day at 7 under after mediocre first and second rounds.
Here's hoping final round coverage is a little better.

Thanks for the plug, honeybun. Actually I am a huge sports fan for certain sports--especially when the home teams are in the playoffs--like the Pats and the Red Sox (does sound like a fair weather fan--to which I admit).

I like all the majors in golf, too. And after a long time reading your blogs, I know from whence you come. You are enlightening me along the way.

Love you lots,
Mommia

To add to my comments of yesterday, I just noticed that one of the local stations is covering the British Open for 3 1/2 hours...still not nearly the coverage of the PGA coverage of a few weeks ago....

Unfortunately I knew the results before the coverage even came on. Guess it's not like Wimbledon that at least attempts to go live with the coverage of the final rounds.
