    Am I bigoted sexist monster for feeling that some sports are for girls and some sports are for boys?
    Eh.

    Holley Mangold says hi.

    And men's field hockey is played around the globe. (You would have got your ass kicked by the girls too.)

    She leaves a trail of 8 year old egos in her wake. Fantastic.

    She's probably got another 2 years before the physical disparity really becomes too much to overcome.

    Actually, you know that some 8 year old boy was berated by his dad for letting a girl run all over him. That's not so fantastic.

    Thats not on her, thats on the jackass dad in your scenario.

    Good for her, shes having fun and playing sports. I have no problem with boys and girls on the same team at that age.

    Saw her on TV this AM. She says her favorite sport is soccer, so Im sure that will be her route once the boys get bigger and stronger.

    Very quick feet and outrunning boys her age...she has a bright future in track if she pursued it.

    I saw men's field hockey for the first time at the Olympics this year. Never knew it existed.

    The reason I reference field hockey is b.c I saw a story a few months back about a boy who joined the girl's field hockey team at his school.

    Can you believe that some sc\/nbag music agency has blocked this on youtube because of the music in the background. Everyone should let these a$$holes know that watching a phenomenal kid is not stealing from their profits!

    Update bump:

    They had her in studio on NFLN

    Kind of undecided on this one. Was kind of funny, but then again, was kind of not something I'd expect to see on NFLN ?

    I thought this thread was going to be about David Clowney.
