8 NCAA Women's Division I championships. 84.33% winning percentage. Focus on the one thing that is most important. In 2000 Pat Summitt was inducted to the basketball Hall of Fame. Not the women's. The Hall of Fame. Transcending gender. That's respect. At the University of Tennessee she is god. There is no male/female reference. Just top of the food chain in the Volunteers athletic department.

Don't look now... The Chicago Bulls are tied for the top spot in the Eastern Conference of the NBA. Tied with the Boston Celtics. Ahead of the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks. One year ago, no one would have thought this to be possible. Improved? Sure... This good? No way.

As a baby, growing up in America you quickly realize a few things as religion. Depending on where you grew up it could either be the steel factories in Pittsburgh, or cheese in Wisconsin. It could be the waves of the ocean or the cold blizzard conditions of New England. But no matter where you grew up, if you are an American male you almost certainly grew up knowing the major holidays... Your birthday, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, the week of the NBA Finals, the World Series & the Super Bowl. And despite some Americans lack of affection towards the NBA or MLB, a vast majority grew up knowing one thing... When the Super Bowl is on everyone watches!

McGwire and Sosa, jointly wiped all memories of the 1994 work stoppage away. Their magical chase of Roger Maris' 61 home runs became not only the talk of their respective cities, St Louis and Chicago, but around the country and even around the world! ESPN would cut away from any and everything every time McGwire or Sosa came up to bat. Major news networks were tuned in. EVERYONE WATCHED! And like that, they saved baseball.
