Like everyone else in the world, I’m caught up in the Olympics. Women’s basketball is especially meaningful right now, as they play for the Gold. I have Annie Meyers Drysdale to thank for that because her fabulous book, YOU LET SOME GIRL BEAT YOU? gave me a front row seat to a woman’s dream of achieving the near-impossible – not for anything other than love of the game. It’s one of the things I love about Annie – her purity. Her single-minded focus never let anything get in her way of reaching her goals. Annie’s book isn’t just a great story about a woman who broke the glass ceiling of women’s basketball, but it’s a great example of how to live life.
I just received a postcard from Annie yesterday, from London, where she’s doing the announcing for women’s basketball for the Olympics, and I know she’s a bundle of nerves for our women athletes. So go celebrate the fabulosity of our athletes by picking up a copy of Annie’s book because you’ll also find that you’re celebrating your life.
