Christina Graf Became Fist Female To Commentate A Bundesliga Game On Live TV

German football fans "heard an unfamiliar voice Sunday when a woman gave a running commentary on a men's football game on national TV for the first time," according to the AP. Christina Graf "became the country's first female commentator at a men's professional football game when she covered Hertha Berlin's 5-1 win at Jahn Regensburg in the second division." Graf beat out around 1,200 applicants to win a casting show for her new job with broadcaster Sky. Graf said, "It's a huge opportunity. But I'm not the very extroverted type and won't go ballistic" (AP, 2/3).
