    John McEnroe: Serena Williams would be ranked 'like 700' on ATP tour

    Is there a woman on the planet who could legitimately make an NBA roster? A Division 1 NCAA basketball starting 5? Of course not.

    Is there a woman who could make an MLB roster? An NFL team? Is there any woman who could defeat a professional boxer in the same weightclass? A D-1 wrestler?

    At every relevant distance, American boys high school track records are superior to the womens' world records. The same is true for swimming, where there is no advantage to being bigger.

    And yet, people have the ludicrous belief that Serena Williams would somehow be competitive with top men professional tennis players. Straight up.

    Incredible.

    Oh shove it...






    17-year-old homecoming queen kicks game-winning field goal


    Soon after 17-year old Kaylee Foster was crowned high school homecoming queen in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, she took off her tiara and put on helmet No. 15. In the homecoming game, as place kicker, she scored two field goals.

    But the team needed more. With the game tied in overtime it all depended on Kaylee and one more kick.

    Guess what?

    Women are not as big and strong as men
    Is that a mystery to you?

    Average women have 55% of the upper body strength of the average man.

    Our bodies are different.

    It's why men are better at pole vault and weight lifting and things that require upper body strength.

    But from the waist down, men and women are much closer in strength and endurance. Which is why marathon running, speed skating and other leg centered athletics are much closer in times and percentages.

    Them's the facts.
