So many times in sports, we love to give praise and glory to the male athlete for all his grand contributions to his sport.
However, it needs to be said that we ladies have been able to do many great things as well, and we have done it during times when we were not supported and when it wasn't necessarily in vogue to do so.
These days, with women getting equal pay and, in some cases, equal play, I find it prudent to remember some of the women who paved the way for us.
It would be easy to name some of the modern day ladies of sport: Annika Sorenstam, Danica Patrick, and Billie Jean King, but that's too easy.
We have all heard of them and know their legacies fairly well. No, I want to spotlight a few ladies who may not have gotten much play. Why? Well, Why not?
