Wendi Nix: The ESPN anchor is on the cover of Improper Bostonian this month, and in a wide-ranging Q&A, said she isn’t insulted when referred to as a “sideline hottie,” is a Bud Light kind of girl, “loves to hate” Rex Ryan, thinks Tom Brady’s hair is at the ponytail stage, and is a fan of the Oregon Duck mascot. Not mentioned: The fact that she’s divorced (or in the process of getting divorced) from Boston Red Sox Vice President of Player Personnel Ben Cherington. In our various talks with ESPN sources, the word most often associated with Nix: “cool.” [Improper Bostonian]
