I’m a woman who loves all things related to sports. I’m that person yelling in front of a television, or screaming at the top of my lungs on the bleachers. Depending on which team you’re rooting for, I’m either going to boo you or give you a high-five.
While I may share the same amount of passion for sports as a lot of guys out there (if not more), I still feel like I don’t get the same amount of respect (majority of the time).
I get it. This field is dominated by the male population.
It’s a place that is filled with aggression, competition, testosterone, etc. But you know what? There are women out there, just like me, who actually follow sports with the same load of energy as the rest of the boys.
You don’t know how many times I receive a surprising look whenever I mention a stat, a play, an athlete, or even a game. It’s upsetting. People automatically assume that I don’t know much about sports based on my sex. Which leads me to the main reason why I decided to start this blog in the first place.
I want to be able to reach out & connect with all the other sports fans & to gain equal respect. I’m doing this because it’s my passion. I love writing & I love sports. Why not marry the two?
So here’s a glimpse into the life of a sports fan! Enjoy!!
