I just got done watching the finals of the Cuetec Cues tournament on ESPN
and was very disappointed in not the play, but the attire that Karen Corr
was wearing.  I'm not saying that she should dress like Jeanette Lee, but
she looks like she is straight out of the early 70s in that not fashionable
retro kind of way either.  I just feel as though she should represent the
game in atleast a stylish manner.  All the other women players seem to dress
nicely, I just feel as though she should conduct herself in the same manner.

Actually, not all of them quite fit the Jeanette Lee image.  Watching
Jeanette at the BCA Trade Show, and comparing her to Gerda, Allison, and the
others, she is a marketing machine!  I'm not saying Gerda and Allison don't
represent their respective sponsors well, but Jeanette is truly unique in
her style and interaction with the fans.

Karen has changed her attire, and at the Trade Show was wearing a stylish
black suit, but I'm sure she takes the jacket off to shoot.  Both the jacket
and the blouse have the Falcon logo on them.   Karen seems rather shy in
person, but she's working on it, and spends more time interacting with the
fans than she seemed to before.  While she has a ways to go, she made Jim
Rempe, Mike Sigel, Nick Varner, and most of the other men look like they
didn't want to be bothered!  Actually, now that I think about it, they
really DIDN'T want to be bothered!

I wouldn't dress like her (though many men would), but she's always looked very
presentable when I've seen her.  I think she's more fashion challenged than bad
mannered.

Yes, well I suppose it is important that a woman not only play well, but has
a responsibility to the fans to look as good as possible, too.  That is what
the WPBA is about after all.

I wish I had gotten the chance to chat with her while she was at Hard Times.
She was there for a Sunday tournament a few months ago and she seemed to be
all business.  She was there to play and I sorta felt like I'd be disturbing
her.  She hardly talked to anyone and didn't sit in the stands between
matches.  She'd look around for an empty table and continue playing in
between matches.  That kind of focus and drive is what I think has taken her
to number one in the WPBA.

Yes, I guess I was a bit harsh, I just feel as though the horribled attire
she had on last night made her look like she shopped at good will.

I resent that.  Just last week I purchased a brand new pair of Bally
loafers at Goodwill.  Karen Corr is a walking, stroking, Glamour
"don't".  I expect her to exchange her glasses for a black rectangle.
I'm sure she's a terrific person, and a heck of a shot, blah blah blah,
but man, she looks like she got run over by Paula Poundstone's tailor.

Wow, does this mean we should require that all WPBA players look like
Jeanette or Ewa?  Well, Hell, that'll cut the size of the field down a bit!
They can move the entire WPBA road show around in a station wagon.

And, where are the women on this topic?  Think maybe we should require all
NBA players look and talk like Rick Fox?  Mutombo would be in real trouble
here!

I think Karen will be a fine spokesperson for anyone she signs on with.  She
won't embarrass her sponsor, much like Terrell Davis just did to Campbell
Soup's wholesome image.  (BTW, I don't believe Terrell did anything wrong,
but can understand Campbell's action).  I think we place entirely too much
importance on the physical attractiveness of our heroes, (not to say that
Karen isn't an attractive individual)!

Perhaps she's just waiting for some clothing sponsors.  I noticed that
her old website, kcbilliards.com, has shut down.  Her new website,
http://www.karencorr.net has buttons that aren't labeled yet, perhaps
for a future online store.  I went there hoping that she was selling
autographed merchandise like Allison Fisher does on her site but, for
now, her web page is just that:  one page.

I think Karen Corr is a modest and understated women. I get the impression
that she wears what is comfortable and innocuous, given her endowments.

I think she would be perfect for one of those before and after
makeovers.  She's not gorgeous, but she could look a whole lot better
with the right clothes, glasses and hair do.  I think anyone playing on
ESPN for the world to watch should look their best.  Reyes looked bad
when I saw him once on ESPN as well.  He was wearing a plain white shirt
that looked like he just threw it on at the last minute.  You would
think anyone going before the camera's would look sharp as possible.
Karen needs some work, and she looks like she is trying to look plain
and drab.  Normally, I could care less, but for TV and a national
audience, a little more effort seems appropriate to me.  If you look
close, with an open mind, you can see she could look a whole lot better
than she does.  She should take some of her winnings to a Hollywood make
up team and tell them to do something, quick.  She would get the money
back in spades with endor***ts I think.
