One of the greatest landmarks in the history of sports is Title IX, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary on this day. In a nutshell, Title IX stated “it’s anyone’s game”, and since ’72, a number of prominent athletes (who just so happened to be women) emblazoned their names in the permanent record of sports legends – names like lisa Leslie, Joan Benoit Samuelson, Marlen Esparza, and Diana Taurasi.
