Athens, GA (Dec 18, 2007) - The sports sites and blogs are buzzing with the news. Last spring, Philadelphia News Anchor Alycia Lane gets everybody laughing and possibly excited about a possible catfight with ABC Sideline Reporter Suzy Shuster after sending bikini pictures of herself to Rich Eisen. Now she has to go and punch a cop in the wee hours of the morning. There is nothing like a little felony count of assaulting a police officer to get the media buzzing.
The sad thing is that this all shows the human side of everybody, warts and all. And of course the media is jumping all over it. This publication is no exception...with one difference. We are not going to post or link to the original pictures. No, this post will go to show just how many people out there are searching for the photos. We will keep track of our referrer log and let our readers know later on.
There is one good thing about this story. At least she was not driving to see Eisen while wearing a diaper. In the meantime, GameOn, am image consulting company that Shuster works for, might be able to expand their service offerings to help Lane with the image problem she is facing. How would they do this? According to their web site:
Athletes are continually placed in the public eye by the media. Strong and lasting impressions are created every day. Whether those impressions are positive or negative is largely up to the athlete. With the proper guidance and training from professionals, we teach athletes or public figures the communication skills necessary to manage his/her own public image. They do this through Engaging clients rather than lecturing to them. Implementing one-on-one and group exercises that allow the participant to rehearse and polish their communication skills in a simulated yet controlled environment.Shuster should be able to do this well as she has already engaged Lane in such an exercise, as you can see in the email she sent Lane:
“Boy, do you look amazing in a bikini . . . congrats! Whatever you’re doing, (Pilates? yoga?) keep doing it - it’s working for you. Anyway, sorry but those seven e-mails you sent to my husband, Rich, well, oops, they came to the e-mail address we both use from time to time, but no worries, I’ll forward the beach shots as well as the ones of you dancing with your friends on to his main address. Do you have it?”
