Michelle Lissel Has New Job 

I couldn't figure out why my Michelle Lissel searches had suddenly spiked. Then I saw this post at Soccer Golazo:

[I]t is with no small amount of sadness I am reporting that one of our favorites is moving on to bigger and better things.

Michelle has joined the Media and PR department of the new MLS franchise, Toronto FC.

Her last show on the FSW Report will be Friday 22 September 2006.

Of course, more people probably read the blog report of one Bobby McMahon:

Michelle's last week with the FSWR...it is true.
Sep 17, 2006 | 6:31PM | report this

Michelle will be doing her final Fox Sports World Report show this coming Friday. After five years she is off to Toronto to join the Media and PR department of Toronto FC who will be making their MLS debut in 2007. We will all miss her but it is a fantastic opportunity for her and she will do a wonderful job for the newest member of the MLS family.

As I write this, Jeremy St. Louis hasn't updated his blog since August. And the only news story that mentions Lissel is dated:

But why dwell on such unpleasantness when there was so much sweetness and light in the Prem this weekend? You could see it in the way that Fox Soccer's Michelle Lissel became increasingly frisky in her banter, not to mention in her on-air attire-- a rainbow of colorful pastels, like that canary yellow number with just a hint of a lacy blouse showing through that only further underlines her evolution from Molly Shannon to the Suzy Kolber of soccer weenies. How long do you think it will be before she tosses those librarian-like specs in favor of contact lenses and has Jeremy St. Louis barking like a dog? Oh wait, he already does.

Not that Lissel doesn't still have the occasional lapse -- like when she referred to Carlos Tevez as a Brazilian the other night -- but she's trying so damn hard to overcome her Saskatoon, Saskatchewan roots, I, for one, forgive her everything except her weird fascination with Diego Forlan. And besides, Tevez did play for a Brazilian club before he alighted at West Ham along with his amigo Javier Mascherano in the shadiest, sorry, shrewdest, coup of transfer deadline day. Don't get me wrong: I have a special affinity for West Ham (the Hebrew Hammer, Yossi Benayoun, is a proud member of my fantasy team, Missing Foerskins United)....

So you see that I am not the only one who strays off topic.

So Lissel leaves Winnipeg and heads to the big city. Time flies.
