Coach K

Let’s start getting pumped up for the Super Bowl with some build-up coverage (that will be wildly biased in favor of the 49ers!): “Without a football team to join in college, Sowers played basketball at Goshen College in Indiana, and was met with a giant hurdle when she hoped to enter the coaching ranks after graduating: the school didn’t want an LGBTQ person coaching. Sowers was turned down for an unpaid coaching position.” How Katie Sowers became the first woman and openly gay coach in Super Bowl history.

+ “A day after 24-time grand slam champion Court was honored at the tournament on the 50th anniversary of her calendar Grand Slam, McEnroe and Navratilova unfurled a banner calling for the Margaret Court Arena to be renamed in honor of fellow Australian Evonne Goolagong.” John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova join forces at Australian Open to hold on-court protest.
