I was glad to see that the WNBA finally got a headline story on ESPN. Of course, it was the game that won the championship. In most areas, I would say better late than never, but I must say that I wish that the WNBA got more coverage. Women's basketball is a slightly different game stylistically than men's basketball, but I also know that it is the same game. Sure, fewer women can pull off a highlight dunk, but I know that I have seen some pretty amazing plays in all of the women's basketball I have watched over the years. Dunking is not the only play that is worthy of a highlight, but I feel like it is too often emphasized as the most exciting play during gameplay. Honestly, you never hear about the WNBA, but these women are extremely talented. The WNBA has been around for over a decade now, and I feel like it's finally time that they get some respect not only for their extraordinarily talented women but also for being able to survive as a viable organization. My congratulations go out to the newly crowned champion, and hopefully the league will be able to continue operating and elevating the game for women who want to play after college.

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
