Fox Sports Girl Of The Week: Bishara
Fox Sports Wisconsin Girl Bishara is remaining optimistic about a rather disappointing season from the Brewers (tied for last in the N.L. Central).
“We have the bats and our bullpen has been great. We just need our starting pitchers to play up to their potential,” she said.
This Wisconsin native with a broadcast journalism degree from Chicago’s Columbia College is a former Milwaukee Bucks dancer who is has some excellent food recommendations if you’re planning to visit Miller Park this summer.
Who is your favorite athlete?
Aaron Rodgers! Besides leading the Packers to win in the Super Bowl XLV, being named Super Bowl MVP, and leading the NFL twice in passer rating, he’s a great role model in the community. I really respect his involvement with the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund. I had the opportunity to meet him for the first time at the Wisconsin Sports Awards this year!
What is your fondest sports memory?
I’m a big sports fan, but unfortunately I wasn’t gifted with the ability to play them very well. I have a lot of training in dance, and eventually wanted to combine my love of basketball with dancing professionally for the NBA. My first year dancing for the Milwaukee Bucks they went to the 1st round of playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks. Sitting on the court, cheering during playoffs, with all the screaming fans is one of my fondest sports memories!
What sport would you play professionally if you could, and why?
I would definitely play basketball professionally if I could. It’s my favorite sport and I love how fast-paced it is. You can be down by ten, then up by 10 in minutes!
What’s the coolest assignment you’ve worked as a Fox Sports Girl?
Traveling to Germany this year to bring “Spring Training to the Troops.” It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. We spent time with troops stationed at U.S Army Garrison Grafenwoehr base. We had an opportunity to experience a day in the life of a solider and their his/her family. We are fortunate to have men and women giving up their todays so that we can have our tomorrows!
I’ve read that you have a broadcast journalism degree. What would be the ultimate job for you to land within the industry?
I want to ultimately land a job as a reporter and personality on a national sports network bringing sports media to fans in a fun unique way! The world of sports is filled with so many stories; stories that go beyond the highlights and stats of the games and players. I want to report on what matters to the fans. We live in a society where social media can give us the hot topics. This allows us to have our finger on the pulse of sports fans unlike ever before.
The Brewers are 15.5 out of first. How does this season get turned around?
Starting pitching! We have the bats and our bullpen has been great. We just need our starting pitchers to play up to their potential. I’m optimistic, because all it takes is another hot streak, like we had earlier this season, and we’re right back in it!
How tired are Brewers fans of Cubs’ fans always complaining about their World Series title drought when the Brewers have never won one?
We’re not tired at all! We’d rather have Cubs’ fans complaining than gloating!
I’ve been on a diet but want to go nuts at Miller Park. What should I eat to obliterate the diet?
It’s a new sandwich known as “The Beast.” It’s grilled bratwurst cut in half and stuffed with a grilled hot dog and then wrapped in bacon served on a pretzel roll with grilled onions and sauerkraut.
We broke the news last year that Ryan Braun is engaged. What did the Fox Sports Wisconsin girls buy for the wedding?
Our invitations to the wedding must have gotten lost in the mail, but we have sent him our best wishes!
What guy on the Brewers should I be following on Twitter?
Jonathan Lucroy (@JLucroy20)! He is very interactive with fans and a lot of his tweets are really funny!
Who is your favorite competitor in the Brewers’ sausage races?
The Italian sausage that wears the white chef’s outfit. He was one of the original three back in from the early 90’s.
