Bob McCown is a horny old man

Not wanting to have anything to do with hockey for a while because we don't want to lose our Air Canada sponsorship, why don't we have fun with the FAN 950's Bob McCown? The inside sunglasses-wearing radio host isn't just an avid sports nut with the ability to take the contrarian position, it appears he is also a fan of the finer bits of women's sport:
"The sole motivation for any man to watch women’s sport is: are they half naked? Are they good looking? Other than that, it don’t matter."
"Women’s curling as I have said on many, many occasions is dramatically inferior to men’s curling… That they don’t have a complete grasp of strategy is puzzling to me. But there must be something in the genes with that too. But I’ll watch women’s curling if there’s a good looking curler out there. Its as simple as that."
"I have never seen a women’s volleyball player that I would consider to be attractive. I’m not saying they’re all dogs… but it’s just not overwhelming, you know what I mean?"
His tirade only lasted for a couple of minutes, but he's good.

(h/t to Josh, the Canadian Sports Fan, for transcribing the statements.)

There is really nothing to add here, other than I do find Madeleine DuPont very pleasing to look at, although I will probably watch and cheer on Canada at the World Women's Curling Championships even though her Danish rink didn't make the draw. Also, he's wrong on two counts in regards to volleyball. Women's volleyball players are stunning and flexible, but, despite this, they don't make watching volleyball any less of a chore. (No disrespect to friend of the Factor and volleyball geek Andrew Bucholtz, who also chimed in on McCown.)

Also, McCown said these things on International Women's Day. What a champion.
