Oh, and it posted higher ratings than LeBron James and Steph Curry could muster for the NBA Finals.
We saw not one but two female coaches hired to coach in men's professional sports. Becky Hammon guided the San Antonio Spurs to the championship in the NBA Summer league.
The following week, Jenn Welter was tapped as the inside linebackers coach intern for the Arizona Cardinals..
Serena Williams mowed down the competition on the manicured lawns of Wimbledon on her way to her 21st Grand Slam title, entrenching herself in the discussion of the best-ever female tennis player.
There is no discussion that Rhonda Rousey is the best-ever female MMA fighter. What can be debated is whether she is the best MMA fighter male or female after her dismantling of Bethe Correia.
Not only are women showing up, the are showing up in ways and fashion that no one would have predicted. This splash down in July demonstrates to all that women not only want to compete, they want to win. They want not only to be acknowledge, they want to make people stand up and take notice.
The quality and performance is there. The product on the court, on the pitch, in the Octagon, in the pool and on the sideline is the best version of itself. These women are tough, determined, intelligent and are not going anywhere.
The dramatic rise in attendance for NWSL games post World Cup is off the charts. Sell outs are happening every where. But let us not forget the groundswell of support after the last time the US captured the Cup. And the two women's soccer leagues that folded since then as well.
To continue to support these women and their sports is the only way the momentum can be sustained, the only way to secure sponsors, turn on the bright lights of TV. These women and their leagues need the fans after the embers of the victory bonfires have died down, when the novelty wanes.
Go support women's sports at all levels so we all can win.
