Mommy Scoreboard’s πŸ€ *Star Athlete Sunday*

(Basketball has and continues to be a huge part of my world. It was basically love at first sight and we’ve been inseparable for three decades. This is my first installment of Star Athlete Sunday where I highlight an athlete that’s made an impression on me both on and off the basketball court. The legendary Sheryl Swoopes is the first player on my list.)

Since a young age I’ve been a HUGE basketball fan. I vividly remember watching the 1996 Women’s Olympic basketball team dominate on the court. I recorded all of the games on VHS tapes and subsequently watched it over and over. I was completely mesmerized by Sheryl Swoopes and knew I wanted to be the like her with a smooth offense and tenacious defense‼️ I watched Sheryl Swoopes throughout her WNBA career and was so elated to see her play in person. Such a legend of the game.

Fun Fact: Our sons have the same first name!

Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!
