In all honesty, I planned a richly-detailed analysis of the upcoming Sox-Orioles series and what it means to both teams. But then I found myself distracted by that goddam photo of Heidi Watney that I posted a couple days ago and before you know it, I was lost in fantasyland.

So in the interest of sparking some positive vibes, I figured I’d post a few more photos of the much-loved and long-gone former ladies of NESN. The ones who balanced out the Don Orsillo eye candy factor by giving us guys something to look at.

Hazel Mae
‘Nuf said.


Krisily Kennedy
Krisily was only at NESN for what seemed a blip on the radar in 2004 (as immortalized in the shitty screencap I am presenting below). But then she showed up on TV’s The Bachelor and some other shows. We caught up with her for an interview a couple years ago.



Amalie Benjamin
Technically a Globe writer but her appearances during Red Sox pre-games make her part of this exclusive club. Wore glasses, melted hearts. Was very likely terrified of me, thanks to posts like this.


Tina Cervasio
If memory serves me, Tina came in after Hazel and we were instantly smitten. Luckily, our poker face is a lot better than Jonathan Papelbon, who couldn’t keep his eyes of Tina’s arse during a taped segment.



Heidi Watney
With all due respect to the other ladies here, and to Jenny Dell, I classify all the NESN talent in two ways: “Heidi Watney” and “Not Heidi Watney.” The only NESN female to willingly participate in a Surviving Grady podcast, and we will forever love her for that. Also, for not telling the authorities about that time she found us in her pantry.





Now if that doesn’t inspire the boys to a win, nothing will. ATTACK!
