    "Holley Mangold lifted 529 pounds in two lifts with a torn tendon in her wrist. The effort didn't bring her a medal -- she finished 10th -- but it highlighted the fact that women can be fierce and endearing without leotards and hair gel.

    In weightlifting, judo and boxing, this Olympics proved women can be athletic even when the soundtrack to "Love Story" isn't playing in the background."

    Well, yeah . . . no shit. Where the hell have you been? Do you even watch soccer/basketball/track and field/field hockey/swimming/softball?

    Oh, maybe she watches soccer, as she goes on to say it's a shame there is no women's professional soccer league.

    These takes on women's sports were brought to you by the 1980s and 1990s.

    got a blowjob once from a girl with a broken arm, and she too did not wear a leotard. Maybe a little hair gel ;)

    What does Jane think of Holley's Mangold's snatch?

    What a stupid column.

    It is unfortunate to think Mia Hamm and Julie Foudy could soon be joined in retirement by Abby Wambach without that barrier being broken. With Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and their golden teammates still vocal and in the prime of their athletic careers, there is time.

    As one door opens for women in sports, another remains stubbornly stuck.

    All of the indignation in the world does not create consumer demand for a product. Sorry, Jane.

    Jane McManus is an athlete herself. Or did y'all not know that?

    This was the state of women's soccer in Los Angeles three years ago. Star power.
