Melissa Stark was Erin Andrews long before EA or Charissa Thompson hit the ESPN radar. Stark joined ESPN in 1996 after graduating from UVA….more on UVA in a moment. Stark did reports for SportsCenter and Sunday NFL Countdown. Melissa Stark was the first “hot chick” sideline reporter on Monday Night Football from 2000 to 2003…..then poof she was gone.

Curiously, Stark seemed to disappear just as her celebrity was hitting all time highs. I read it was because she wanted to have a family, I think it was for another reason.

Any random Google search of Melissa Stark provides these insane rumors of her being the whore to end all whores at UVA. Like anything else, probably about 25% of this is fact. The core story that seems to follow her around is pretty gross. It goes something like this…..she had to be rushed to the hospital after having anal sex with Mike Groh (son of UVA coach Al Groh) for what is known as “pink sock”… sock is the result of excessive anal plundering; the intestines actually exit through the anus, forming a dangling mass, resembling a pink sock.

Anyway, now she is back on the NFL Network and looking sexier than ever! Get ready for the new NFL season checking out the latest Super Bowl Odds.
