Title IX

This past weekend on ESPN, they dedicated a lot of time and programming to the 40th anniversary of Title IX.  I loved the piece on the 1999 Women’s World Cup Champions, and there were other great stories, interviews, and games.   I had such mixed emotions while watching it.

She’s a Holleman Baby

not sure if this is Wendy or a brother

Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, one may or may not think Hope looks like a Holleman baby.  I believe she does.  I should post a picture of Wendy also, so you can form an opinion if Wendy looks like her mom, Jan.  I have spent hours trying to post these pictures in certain locations and add pictures, then I accidentally lose pictures or move pictures.  I have no control of where the picture pops up, so this is what you get.  I believe Wendy looks like her mother.

For those that don’t know the story… Wendy’s mom, Jan, died in 1987 after a 8-9 year battle with breast cancer.  Hope Janice is named after Wendy’s mom.  NOT Hope Solo.  Since the World Cup, we get asked that question a lot.
