Some male viewers are struggling to cope with TWO women on SSN at the SAME time
Women! On telly! Two of them!!
Sky Sports News is something of a staple in most of our lives. In fact it's often hard to escape it. Whether at home, at the gym, or frequenting a public house, it's there, always on in the background.
As with anything so omnipresent, there are certain aspects of it that we take for granted. The yellow bar with breaking news (that often isn't very breaking); Jim White's cheesy patter; Dharmesh Sheth with the transfer news.
But there's one rather unspectacular thing that has happened on the channel that seems to have taken some male viewers somewhat aback. In fact it is such a revelation to them that they're finding all a bit overwhelming.
It's because they've noticed that instead of just one woman in a presenting partnership, sat beside a male colleague, the channel is pairing TWO WOMEN together! Yes you read that right - TWO WHOLE WOMEN!
We'll let give you a moment to take in such staggering news.
In particular the recent combo of established SSN presenters Kate Abdo and Anna Woolhouse has got some blokes in a bit of a tizzy. In fact, it is the breaking news.
Whatever next - a female Prime Minister?!

(...funnily enough, there isn't the same reaction when it's two men presenting together. Strange that.)
