    HWTP Sports Talk: Live Wed May 13 - Special Guest Author Jennifer Ring

    in Sports

    Jennifer Ring is a professor of political science at the University of Nevada, Reno. She is the author of Stolen Bases: Why American Girls Don’t Play Baseball. "This revealing book, which makes an important contribution to sports and women's history, will interest anyone curious about an overlooked segment of amateur athletics."—Craig Clark, Booklist


    In 2010 twenty American women were selected to represent Team USA in the fourth Women’s Baseball World Cup in Caracas, Venezuela; most Americans, however, had no idea such a team even existed.


    A Game of Their Own chronicles the largely invisible history of women in baseball and offers an account of the 2010 Women’s World Cup tournament. Jennifer Ring includes oral histories of eleven members of the U.S. Women’s National Team, from the moment each player picked up a bat and ball as a young girl to her selection for Team USA. Each story is unique, but they share common themes that will resonate with young female players and fans alike: facing skepticism and taunts from players and parents when taking the batter’s box or the pitcher’s mound, self-doubt, the unceasing pressure to switch to softball, and eventual acceptance by their baseball teammates as they prove themselves as ballplayers. These racially, culturally, and economically diverse players from across the country have ignored the message that their love of the national pastime is “wrong.” Their stories come alive as they recount their battles and most memorable moments playing baseball—the joys of exceeding expectations and the pleasure of honing baseball skills and talent despite the lack of support.

    Roy Tuscany Starts the High Fives Foundation After Life-Altering Injury

    in Finance

    On April 26, 2006 at 9:05 a.m., everything shifted for Roy Tuscany. He was at Mammoth Mountain for his 2nd Coaches Retreat. On his first run of the day, he hit a jump he'd hit a 100 times before except -- this time -- he overshot it. The people who did the accident investigation told him he traveled over 130 feet and flew more than 30 feet in the air. It was not a good crash.

    Roy suffered a burst fracture of his T-12 vertebrae and severed the artery in his right thumb. HeI was life-flighted to Reno and told he was an incomplete paraplegic. Someone said that being an incomplete is a lot like purgatory -- you're stuck somewhere in the middle between a wheelchair and moving easily on two feet.


    Roy knew from the beginning he wanted to walk and ski again. He had health insurance, but just a few weeks before the accident, Roy turned down a chance for disability insurance. There were a lot of things that health insurance didn't attend to -- alternative medicine treatments, gym memberships, acupuncture, rent, food, adaptive sports equipment and the insurance deductible. 

    Roy decided in the hosptial he would start a fund to protect other risk-taking winter athletes who wound up on the wrong side of crashes. The name for the fund -- the High Fives Foundation -- came from his early hospital experience. Doctors and therapists would come into his room and hide behind their clipboards. It was as if they didn't want to interact with him. So, he made them give him a high five. Hand to hand, skin to skin, forced them to connect. It also made them friends from the get-go.

    If there were one way to sum up how Roy lives his my life and what the foundation is doing, it would be this. He's breaking the boundaries of purgatory.

    SC EP: 97 The Chicken Man

    in Science

    In the late 1960`s  a creature simply known as the “Abominable Chicken Man” had been reported on a farm west of Oklahoma City near El Reno. According to the Oklahoma Journal, a farmer found the door to his chicken coop ripped off and lying on the ground. On the surface of the door and inside the coop itself were strange hand prints about seven inches long and five inches wide. When he saw that several of his chickens had disappeared with out a trace, he called the local state game ranger. The door was shipped to zoologist Lawrence Curtis, director of the Oklahoma City Zoo. After a study that included comparisons with the hand and paw prints of human beings, apes, monkeys, bears and other animals, Curtis confessed his bafflement. “I don’t know what this is,” he said. “It resembles a gorilla but it’s more like a man.” According to Curtis the creature’s thumb crooks inward as if deformed or injured.


    Tonight I will be speaking with a law enforcement officer who has had his own run in’s with Sasquatch. He says in several parts of Oklahoma the locals still call this creature the chicken man because of the incident that took place back in the 1960’s. It is interesting how around the U.S. everyone calls this creature Bigfoot or Sasquatch but in the Midwest and in the South the locals who have been seeing these creatures for a long time give them names based on what they observe them doing like “Corn Man”, “Chicken Man”, “Night Stalker” and “Wild Man”. The list goes on and on with local names. The chicken man incident that took place in the 60’s is an interesting case because so much physical evidence was left behind and was examined. Locals in the area would report seeing a large upright orangutan like creature harassing and killing their livestock.
