Women in Sports: Athletes or Accessories?

Watching a win? Or ogling some skin?
My column in this week's dead tree version of The Sportatorium (better known as the Dallas Observer) delves into chicks in sports.

Specifically, the Dallas Desire of the Lingerie Football League. Generally, why do we watch?

Is it because Maria Sharapova is really good at tennis? Danica Parick a superb driver? Michelle Wie an excellent putter? Or is it because - duh - they're women.

President Barack Obama played golf with a woman this week, so maybe this whole Title IX jazz isn't a fad after all. My question remains ...

If you find yourself watching women's sports, is it because of :

A) The sport.

B) The women.
