I haven’t seen such a mockery of surfing since Mary Kate and Ashley’s Hawaiian Beach Party. And at least in that video, they actually surfed. A new advertisement for Roxy Pro Biarritz – an all-female world surfing contest – has caused quite stir down under, and rightfully so, because it’s straight-up idiotic. Here’s the play-by-play: Woman rolls around topless in bed and picks up her cell phone, woman puts on sheer white top, ... Read More
"Icons. Rivals. Champions. Sisters." The world knows Venus and Serena Williams as the sister act that forever changed tennis, swatting away stereotypes and smashing their way to the top of the rubber-soled crop. But this documentary gives us an intimate and honest look at these women like you've never seen them before! It features in-depth interviews with Bill Clinton, Chris Rock, Anna Wintour, and more. And as if all that's not compelling enough, Wyclef Jean ... Read More

There’s no doubt about it: Sam is a football star. Oh, yeah. And Sam’s a girl. A video ... Read More
The London Olympics will perhaps always be remembered for its record-breaking feats and for its historically –based opening ceremony (give Britain a break for its industrial revolution skit, it's really hard to be the following act to Beijing).  We saw Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian of all time; we saw Gabby Douglas become the first African-American woman to win Gold in the gymnastics all-around; we saw Usain Bolt grace the world with ...

Yesterday, the infamous Glass Ceiling got a another pretty big crack in it: Shannon Eastin is the first woman ever to referee a National Football League game. Touchdown! Last night, 42-year-old Eastin presided over the game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Diego Chargers. It was pretty great to see a woman in the traditionally masculine black-and-white uniform. Eastin, previously a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference referee crew chief, has over 17 years of ... Read More
