I have started this “first post” nearly 100 times over the last 4 years. I first had the dream for a website dedicated to teaching women about sports in the summer of 2008. I worked sporadically on the idea, always a flurry of creative activity followed by serious drought. Yet, the dream persisted. Why? Because I knew that WOMEN CAN TALK SPORTS!
Many women told me that they don’t want to watch sports because they just don’t understand it. So, my vision was simple: Give women a place to have the world of sports explained in a simple, conversational style.
Many guys told me that they don’t want to include girls in watching sports because of all the stupid questions. So, again my vision was simple: Give women a safe place to have their “silly questions” answered.
The result is WomenCanTalkSports.com
Women Can Talk Sports empowers women to join the sports conversation by providing an environment to ask questions, understand the basics, and gain the confidence to talk sports!
A cultural barrier exists between men and women when it comes to sports. As a result, most women do not feel comfortable conversing about sports with their husbands, boyfriends, sons, co-workers, and even other women.
However, WCTS believes that women SHOULD talk about sports. Sports are so similar to women: competitive, passionate, strategic, and sometimes moody! We have something unique and valuable to add to the sports conversation in our personal and professional lives.
So, WCTS will sift through the overwhelming amount of information and explain the world of sports in simple, basic terms. We will keep you up-to-date with current topical issues in sports news, break down specific sports making it easy and enjoyable to watch a game, and of course, answer YOUR sports questions.
This is YOUR website. Submit your questions, suggestions, and comments. Join our e-mail list to receive updates that will help you talk sports.
Ladies, it’s time to let the world know that Women Can Talk Sports!
