Show a Little Leg and They Will Come?
All women have different reasons for playing sports but until recently I was not aware that looking good was one of them. Let’s face it, not all of us look pretty after playing in a game or practice but maybe if we threw on a skirt we would?
Apparently being a competitive, hard-nosed, skilled, athlete isn’t good enough anymore. In order to reel in more fans and money we need to be wearing something for the guys to look at. Women athletes work just as hard as the men, play just as tough, put in the same amount of time and effort in the weight room and on the field, court, pool, or wherever and are definitely just as competitive. So why has being a female athlete turned into a modeling agency? Let us be grass stained and bloody when we are competing. Female athletes should be respected for what they can do in their sport and not for what they show up to play in.
