|Blog: Viva Women
||Hallo... played basketball today after over a decade! Why? Had an
urge thanks to PBS and This
Is A Game Ladies - a film about the Rutgers Women's Basketball
Team, their Coach, and much more.
I must admit, it was the first time I watched women play college
level basketball. Sadly, I never even attended any basketball games
while at college nor at university. My last exposure was with
friends shooting baskets for fun and prior to that, being on our
high school basketball team. The latter was a serious adventure at
the time, but ended in 11th grade.
Scarlet Knights is made up of a team of college women. The film
follows them through their trials and tribulations on and off the
basketball court. A key figure and major inspiration in the film is
coach C. Vivian Stringer. She definitely has put a positive dent in
women's athletics and changed the outlook for the better!
Oh yes, women are getting into the
professional team sports! We have seen them in tennis, swimming,
golf, squash, and other individual sports, but now it is time to see
them in action and shining as part of a team sport. Viva women in
soccer, baseball, hockey, and basketball!
