From Boxing to NASCAR Women have come a long way when it comes to sports, we are joining in on the “Game” so to speak and I love it. I remember a time when women only played Tennis or softball. The times are changing folks.
We have woman’s fast pitch softball. Not sure why a woman pro baseball league doesn’t exist but it’s a start.
We have women’s Basketball.
Women are playing football now and no, I do not mean soccer. I mean real American football.
Did you know there is a woman’s PRO football league? We even have women in NASCAR.
Yep look out fellas we are coming!
On a more serious note it really is great to see women making this move forward and showing we got it too.
I have always loved sports I got to play baseball and basketball when I was younger but I wanted so much more. I would have given anything to have been able to play on my high school football team, but when I asked the coach he just laughed and said try cheerleading, girls don’t play ball!
Well a cheerleader I was not! Thinking back now I wish I would had fought him about it.
” Girls don’t play football”
Thing is if I would have been given the chance I could have showed some of those boys just what girls could do. I was pretty darn good. I could catch, throw and run! I could even take a pretty hard hit.
There are some high school teams now that have girls on them, and a few peewee type leagues that have girls as well, but they are few and far between. I know there are girls out there that want to play but are either intimidated by playing with boys or how their peers will perceive them.
Personally I think there should be high school all female football teams.
They say there is no rule that says woman can’t play in the NFL but seriously do you think any NFL coach would pick a woman player if she can’t play at a high school or college level to prove herself.
That kind of goes for all sports how are women supposed to show they can do it if not given the opportunity?
Keep on pushin ladies!
