Is it only my own impression or are readers of newspapers being pressured to pay more attention to women's sports? Every time you open a sports page, the coverage of women's althletics seem completely out of proportion to the actual interest in it. You feel like you should have an interest, even if you don't--that there's an implicit finger being wagged at you.
Well, turns out the coverage does appear to be out of alignment.
It's one thing to watch men sweat and grunt and spit, but another to watch women do it.
