  1. WWE Studios Is Doing a Cheesy, Feel-Good Movie About Female Wrestlers Called Queens of the Ring

    Not sure if want.

    WWE Studios and Karé Productions' Queens the Ring actually looks... surprisingly not that bad. Better than I was expecting, certainly, though still schmaltzy in a vaguely made-for-TV-movie kind of way, but it could be good. What do you think?

  2. 12-Year-Old Girl Calls Dick’s Sporting Goods Out On Lack Of Representation; Dick’s C.E.O Responds Like A Champ

    Nothing but net. Internet.

    When 12-year-old basketball player McKenna Peterson realized that the recent Dick's Sporting Goods catalog didn't have any representation of female athletes, she took matters into her own capable hands and sent the company an amazingly sassy letter.

  3. The Mary Sue Interview: Medieval Full-Contact Steel Fighter Sandra Lagnese

    BRING THE BOHURTS!

    As I wandered through the hotel maze of Dragon Con a few weekends ago in Atlanta, Georgia, I found myself in the basement of the Hyatt looking at a sign that said "The Armory." While there I met Sandra Lagnese, who participates in full-contact medieval steel fighting—aka bohurts—and was one of the first women to join the Armored Combat League USA Knights team. Yeah, I was impressed too.

  4. No, You’re Crying Over Gisele Bündchen’s Under Armour Ad Campaign

    It's insPITational. (Phew, had to get that out of my system. )

    I am a total sucker for Under Armour's recent ads. The company has recently emphasized the power of women not typically considered "athletes" (their last commercial showed underdog ballerina Misty Copeland sticking it to her critics), and now Gisele Bündchen has literally entered the ring in a video which shows her kickboxing underneath projections of actual comments made about her online.

  5. Kacy Catanzaro’s Historic Run On American Ninja Warrior Is At An End

    Damn you, jumping spider!

    ...at least until she comes back next year to kick that jumping spider's ass good and proper, I assume. Only one woman has ever successfully gotten past that particular obstacle: fellow finalist Meagan Martin, who has four inches on the the five-foot-tall Catanzaro. She didn't make it through to the second stage, but her run was still really impressive. You can check it out under the jump.

  6. Today In Awesome, Mo’ne Davis Signed Autographs For Players on the L.A. Dodgers

    Heroes get remembered, but LEGENDS NEVER DIE.

    One day, I want Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig to treasure that signed baseball so much that his kid will endure unspeakable horrors at the hands (paws?) of a terrifying English Mastiff dog and a blind James Earl Jones to get to back. Also, Mo'ne should appear to that child in no less than two or three fever dreams. Basically I want her in a Sandlot reboot, is what I think I'm asking for. Make it happen, Hollywood.

  7. 13-Year-Old Baseball Pitcher Mo’Ne Davis Will Be On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated!

    The 13-year-old girl who made headlines last week for her 70 mph fastball and her historic Little League shutouts (yes, plural) is getting some much deserved recognition from one of the biggest names in sports journalism.

  8. 13-Year-Old Mo’Ne Davis Makes World History by Pitching Shutout Against All-Male Competitors

    Or, in non-sports terms, by being the BAMFiest BAMF that ever did BAMF.

    She's 5'4'' and just 13 years old. Competitors fear her, pro ball players praise her, teammates idolizes her. Her walk-up song is Beyoncé's "Run the World" and she's got more dragons than Daenerys, but that's not enough for star Little League pitcher Mo'Ne Davis.

  9. Kacy Catanzaro Talks About Her Historic Run on American Ninja Warrior, Also Runs Away With Our Hearts

    Which is ironic because she doesn't seem to like running that much.

    You might know Ninja Warrior as "the super-intense competition program that used to be better when it directly imported from Japan to G4" (No? Just me?). But this week the American adaptation of the show making headlines because for the first time ever, a woman made it to the finals—and she was incredible at it.

  10. Olympics Update: Meredith Vieira Becomes the First Female Host of NBC’s Olympics Coverage

    Firsts

    And it only took an eye infection so bad that an anchor became temporarily blind. Bob Costas, NBC's long time host of their prime time Olympics coverage, has unfortunately come down with a pretty extreme eye infection just in time for the beginning of this year's games. As long as he could still read notes and sit in a bright room, he was game to continue the job, but for the past three days, Matt Lauer has filled in. The Olympics and The Today Show make a pretty demanding schedule for Lauer, so starting tonight, NBC anchor Meredith Vieira will be filling in until Costas can make it back from sick leave. This will make her the first woman to ever host NBC's primetime Olympics coverage solo. But that's not the only thing that's happened since our last Olympics update:
