ESPN’s Nine for IX DVD Collection & $25 Sports Authority G.C #Giveaway #NINEFORIX

Women are strong and amazing human-beings and one way we express our strength is through Sports. There are so many wonderful role models for young ladies today and you can learn their stories with the ESPN’s Nine for IX Dvd. The film contains stories from such athlete’s as Sheryl Swoops known as the Female Micheal Jordon, rivaling his accomplishments with her own. As one of the first high-profile athletes to come out as being gay, she is not the everyday superstar. Mary Decker a famous runner from the 70′s and 80′s was one of the greatest runners of the 1970s and 80s. Decker set many running records but had a crushing experience in the 1984 Olympics. Branded examines the role sex and sex symbols play in the lives of female athletes, including tennis player Anna Kournikova, who is a pioneer for women athletes who understand that sometimes, sex sells.

Funny how life brings about a coincidence that we were talking about this very subject of women and equality in sports. My niece wanted to know why there wasn’t a female professional football team or any females on teams like the Chicago Bears.  My husband proceeded to say that women would just not be able to physically hold up to the amount of training and extensive hits that men take while on the field.
