I saw this video linked on facebook and actually took the time to watch it. It’s cued up to the important bit.
Before watching I thought the whole ice bucket thing was pretty stupid.
I still think it’s kind of stupid, but now I understand how much it means to people living with ALS that their disease is getting the most public recognition since Lou Gehrig was diagnosed so many years ago.
So, watch the video. See what this disease does to people.
the problem with “don’t trust the (mainstream) media” isn’t that the mainstream media is always 100% trustworthy because that’s the opposite of true. the issue is that nontraditional media, which isn’t subject to standards of quality control, gets elevated to the status of fact and misinformation can spread easily. basically don’t trust.
I’m going to try wearing real honest to goodness grown up shoes more often. These are very comfortable but are slightly too wide meaning I have to wear a thick sock underneath my dressier sock to take up the space.
Thirteen year old Mo’ne Davis pitched a shutout game this weekend, lifting her Pennsylvania Little League team to the Little League World Series. Just to be clear, she doesn’t play on a softball or girls baseball Little League team. Mo’ne Davis gave up just three hits to the boys on the opposing team and didn’t allow any runs to score. But you won’t find her profile on ESPN. Click over to ESPNW to learn more about this very cool and super talented young pitcher. She dreams of playing in the WNBA, but personally I would love to see her pitching in the good ole MLB.
This year, for the first time, two girls will play in the Little League World Series.

I’m really excited about this story. I’ve also decided I need yet another place on the Internet to run my mouth—in this instance, The Broad Cast, a blog for talking about women and sports, covering women playing sports, women writing and reporting on sports, and misogyny in sports and sports reporting.
Tamara, that’s an awesome blog idea and I dare say: you really ‘hit it out of the park’ with the title.
