Well, looks like it WAS guys wrote it:

Politically incorrect question:

About that Timex Helix watch manual...
Why don't we think the writer could have been
a woman? (I know that that thought never crossed
my mind.) What is it about that manual that has
a "guy" sound to it, even though there are lots
of women in the various sports that are referenced?

I think it's something in the flavor of the humor
itself, and not necessarily in other aspects of
the writing.
