I was asked to do the celebrity coin toss before the final game of the FC Gold Pride in its inaugural year of the WPS (Women's Professional Soccer) league. I was honored to be chosen for the final game. I must admit, my coin tossing skills are not too good! I flipped the half-dollar coin and it went straight up and straight down! We had to do a second toss — apparently a first! :)
Tonya Antonucci (above), the Commissioner of the WPS, has done an outstanding job getting the league up and running, especially during such a tough economy.
The WNBA (now in its 12th season) has paved the way for women’s professional sports and it is great to see the expanse of possibility for women athletes.
