One of the most exciting parts of my job is interacting with our fans and the Fever faithful were as excited as I was about the prospect of me cooking them a big southern dinner. Three months and a WNBA Championship later, I was happy to deliver the goods to the two big winners.
At some point in elementary school, I realized something. My peers could say whatever they wanted to about my disability, but if I worked hard enough, I could be better than them at something -- maybe I had an advantage after all.
There is no doubt that in its 15th year, the WNBA continues to represent something more than just another pro basketball league. It also has become a social instrument for how we view women athletes in the professional team sports world.
