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.

In our various talks with ESPN sources, the word most often associated with Nix: “cool.” [Improper Bostonian]
