Women in Sports: Playing with the Boys

All eyes this weekend are on the Super Bowl XLVIII.

So, of course here at MAKERS, we decided to take a bit of a different perspective on the event. We're taking a look at women who've played the sports that so many peopleboth men and womentraditionally think are "men's sports" like football, hockey, wrestling, boxing, baseball etc.

Sure, women don't have the professional sporting leagues that men have in these games, but that doesn't mean they can't play.

View the gallery above to learn about the women who never saw their passion for a sport as an obstacle, but as an opportunity.
