Similar to our “Watch Me Work“ series here on GuysGirl, I love love LOVE to talk with fellow female sports fans and Gat from Sprots Takes is certainly one of them. She has a couple kiddos and still manages a to run a sports website with more than 20 female writers, a freelance marketing gig and a podcast. Whew.

As the weekend SportsCenter anchor, Walsh sits alongside Matt Barrie as the pair frequently travels for weekend shows in different cities around the country. Especially during football season, SportsCenter on the Road allows Walsh and her team experience fanatical sports fans in cities all over the country.This is rare as most people like Walsh work behind a desk but initially get into the business because of their love for sports—ultimately having to choose between covering a sport or experiencing it as a fan. However, SportsCenter on the Road allows Walsh to experience the best of both worlds.

As the owner of The Blonde Side, Jayme has been hustling these Twitter streets since 2009. We kick off the show with Jayme talking about challenges for women on social media that come at the helm by other women. DYK: there’s a private Facebook group for “real women who cover sports” that almost has a mean-girls appeal to it? Kinda BS…but we talk into this plus her career covering sports/travel, if Texans feel the same way about J.J. Watt as males outside of Houston
