"I've Given My Life to Sports....

And In Return, Sports Have Given Me A Life.
A Beautiful Life."

I watched the video below and it could have been me talking.

She reminds me so much of myself (minus the Olympic Gold Medals!)

What she says reminds me so much of MY family.

Me and my three sisters.

Softball tournaments were OUR summer vacations.

We knew that we had to work hard to be the BEST we could at softball.

To go to college for free.

Our parents couldn't pay for four girls to go to college.

We knew this and worked hard everyday from age 8 until 21 playing the game we loved.

My dad played professional baseball and we wanted to follow in his footsteps and be great at whatever we chose to do.

Me and my sisters all went to college for free.

My twin sisters played professionally for the Chicago Bandits with Jennie Finch who is in this video.

(Look who they got to hang out with because they were celebrity softball players! Can you say DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES!)

Our youngest sister Maggie played on the USA Junior Olympic Team and will hopefully play on the USA Olympic team with Jennie Finch (the girl in this video) one day.

I hope you will watch the video and enjoy what kind of life sports can give people and what it gave our family!

(Please scroll down and hit PAUSE on the music so you can hear the video. And it's much better full screen if you want to enlarge it and watch! ENJOY!)
