Spark of Hope
I don't really follow women's basketball, but I have to agree with John Cole. Candace Parker of the LA Sparks has had one hellacious year:|
In one year, Candace Parker was a senior at University of Tennessee and won a national championship, graduated from college, won a gold medal on the basketball team at Beijing, was the number one draft pick in the WNBA, won Rookie of the Year, and now is being named the league MVP.By any standard, that's a pretty amazing and, in fact, all of these achievements actually occurred over a seven-month period -- from the NCAA championship in March to winning the MVP this week.
