Every person who participates in sports won't become a professional athlete. But everyone should have the same opportunities to chase their dreams. I may not have the same basketball gifts as a Kobe Bryant or LeBron James, but like them I was given a chance for equal play.
To watch the UConn women's basketball team break the UCLA men's team long-standing record of 88 consecutive wins has been a thrill. Unfortunately, people only pay attention to women's sports when we are competing in the men's arena.
