Many of you received the email today from The National about HGTV looking for "messy" sports collectors. They want to find people whose collections are unorganized and a bit crazy and help them make it oh-so-pretty.
Wonderful. Sounds like fun and I am sure there are several collectors out there who would benefit from this type of makeover, including our very own Marie-bay.
However, the email starts with this:
The HGTV Network is looking to power up with some strong "male" dominance by picking a sports super home to do a fabulous TV "Make Over". Do your sports collectibles grow like weeds instead of flowers? Is it one mess from the doorway to doorway? Then you might be the lucky person who becomes a hero to your wife and family, as HGTV comes in and gives you the ultimate home makeover.
Yeah, so I'm a bit annoyed because I have a collection of sports memorabilia and cards. But, guess what HGTV? I HAVE BOOBS!!!!!!
You don't have to be a guy to be into sports and collect. I get that the majority of collectors are men, but what about The Hamiltonian, Kimaloo and the women of Dinged Corners.
Don't we count for something?
I have boobs. I like sports. I collect baseball cards and am damn proud of it!
