Am experiencing degrees of difficulty

August 20, 2008

Can anyone figure out the accent of NBC’s female diving commentator (or, clearly, her name)? You think South, but then there’s a Plains-y element that sneaks in there. The ultimate effect is Nancy Grace-ian. Wikipedia has Grace hailing from Macon, Ga. But do we really think that’s our answer? I’d put likelihoods at:

1-Northern Arkansas
2-Tulsa, Ok.
3-Kentucky (though actually, I’ve met some more Kentuckians recently and have been surprised by the smoothness of their drawls. Bourbon-esque, you might say… (Or would you rather say… Bourbon-ic? (Na.)))
