Yesterday was the 37th anniversary of Title IX … 37 years. I like that the milestone coincides with the 10th anniversary of the 1999 Women’s World Cup. Alice (thanks!) sent me a link to “License to Thrive” – a documentary chronicling the passage and impact of Title IX. We’re hoping it’ll come to Red River … or be available via the Ironweed DVD Club. It’s for sale at the “License to Thrive” site, too … in case anyone wants to send JordanCornblog a copy. ;>)
What else? The Phillies appear to have emerged from their funk .. defeating the Rays handily. (Sorry, Mo!)
The Breakers are gearing up for a trouncing of the Freedom tonight … in which they will also secure a spot in second place in the WPS standings. That will be nice to see! (Sorry, Beulah!)
The Athletica play LA tonight, too – in a match-up that could mightily challenge the Sol. (Let’s hope so[lo]!)
And what’s up with Mark Sanford? Hiking the Appalachian Trail? Boarding a plan? Apparently he’s supposed to be back today … but you have to admit it’s kind of odd behavior. I did some Googling and found his Wikipedia profile. He’s a GOPer with a penchant for evading his handlers and disappearing. Touted as a possible GOP candidate for 2012, I’m thinking he’s gotta get himself under better control.
