I will be honest the sports media as whole (myself included) tend to focus too much on the negative figures in the sports world and not enough on the positive role models out there like Candace Parker.
ESPN the Magazine is doing something that I think is both innovative and groundbreaking. By putting a very beautiful and very pregnant Candace Parker on their latest issue they have become the first men's sports magazine to do such a thing. I commend them for thinking outside of the box and doing something a lot of men's magazine would see as taboo.
For millions of young women out there it shows them that their potential is limitless and that they really can be anything that they want to be.
As far as Mrs. Parker you couldn't ask for a better role model for not just young women, but everyone. Intelligent, talented, determined and absolutely glowing from her pregnancy if my young daughter grew up anything like Candace Parker I would have known I did a great job.
