From what I can tell, blonde sports reporter Julie Donaldson went from covering the Heats in Miami to covering the Mets in New York to covering the Sox in Boston, where a reader noticed her and sent in her name for consideration. And my oh my does she deserve some consideration! Blonde sideline reporters are always a little hotter than their brunette counterparts if you ask me, and Julie Donaldson certainly confirms that totally irrational and idiotic stereotype.
