Thank you, Dave Zirin. Your article is refreshing and spot on. We so rarely hear such talk in the sports realm—much less in a man’s voice. Thank you for supporting womens’ sports while denigrating the sexism that is often close at hand. Yesterday I had go through GoDaddy.com to work out an issue for my website. My stomach turned at the site of a powerful and fearless race car driver who belittled herself into playing the part of a bimbo. She is in a great position to give a strong and positive message, but sadly and predictably (these days) stooped to promulgating the status quo. Your article was a timely read for me!
