WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO KNEEL FOR?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware that the President of the United States and the National Football League are engaged in a war of words and demonstrations. This civil war of sorts has its roots in the non-violent protest of NFL free-agent Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Last year Kaepernick began protesting the […]

Amber Balcaen: The Underdog of NASCAR

Amber Balcaen: The Underdog of NASCAR

I’m an underdog. I don’t come from money. I come from dirt racing. I’m Canadian. I’m a woman. There’s a lot that doesn’t add up to me being a typical NASCAR driver.

GLADIATHER® LAW: DEVOS & WOMEN IN SPORTS

If the numbers of women and men who participated in Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington in DC and around the world prove anything it’s that there is massive global support for equality and justice for women.

LaChina Robinson: Fighting to Make You Love Women’s Basketball

I want people to be excited to cover the game, to fall in love with the players and coaches at the collegiate and professional levels the way I have; to want to close the gap in coverage between women’s and men’s sports.

MY MONTH AS HOPE SOLO’S PR MANAGER

MY MONTH AS HOPE SOLO’S PR MANAGER

Sigh. Hope Solo. Instead of talking about what a great goalie and representative of women’s sports she is, we’ve spent the majority of August talking about what a poor sport she is. She’s seriously been a public relations nightmare and I can only imagine that her management team is in full-on crisis management mode right now. […]

AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW, NOW YA KNOW…

The Olympics have come and gone.  I must say, aside from Ryan Lochte’s full-on frat bro display of stupidity and utter disrespect, I enjoyed what I saw.  I was unquestionably entertained and inspired.  I actually think that it’s the inspiration piece that really makes the Olympics so great.  Not only are athletes providing entertainment and […]
