    yeah she need to dial the enthusiasm down from 11 - especially when it prevents her from reading the sentences correctly. Millie Clode thinks she reads badly.

    I also love how she pronounces "Tot-ten-ham" just like I like to :)

    But she's still better than Nabil Karim!

    This thread is useless without photos. :p

    What's her name? Are you talking about the petite blonde with the short hair?

    If you were to play the drinking game every time Lara B. mispronounces a name, you would be dead from intoxication before the first commercial break.

    My impression from that clip is that she's trying to do SportsCenter, whereas the rest of the FSR hosts take a more relaxed and slightly formal English style. It doesn't work to have both on one set.

    Terri and Jeremy or Terri and Derek are my favorite team-ups. I'm not that fond of Lara and as I was watching last night I was thinking the same exact thing, dial it down a bit!

    Also Terri is much cuter. This is a fact that can't be disputed.

    Give her some time. The dialing down should come naturally as she gets more experience.

    But who is sexier? That's what matters.

    she reads a teleprompter. has no idea what she's saying. from totten-HAM to pronouncing Milan like it rhymes with can. Totally irritating, don't need eye candy while watching soccer report. Just put somebody on that knows what the hell they're talking about.

    HAHAHAHA. So I was just watching FSC and said to myself, this woman's voice makes me want to stab my ears with an ice pick.

    Sure enough, I come here to make a thread saying so, and lo and behold, there already is one.

    Everytime she is actually on the screen, her lips look like they are trying to over enunciate every single word. Driving me nuts.

    Ice Pick. Stab. Ears.

    Although, I just read that she is an AC Milan fan. So I'll cut her some slack.

    It does.

    Lara has a good voice, but she has a lot to learn when it comes to pronunciation.

    The pronunciations will come with time. I get annoyed with her because it seems she doesn't realize that 95% of us watching the Report already know the results and who scored, we're tuning in to actually see the goals. She treats every highlight, even the repeated ones during the second half of the hour, like she's suprising us. The momentary pauses, followed by over-the-top goal or save break-downs are just annoying.

    Give her time, though, she'll get better.

    an AC Milan fan should know that Brazillians' names are pronounced differently than Italian names. i.e. Lucio and Maicon.
