Flag Football Gets Girly

This is a tribute to Carly, the only female in a Florida flag football league. The year was 1991. Not only did this nine-year-old have the courage to tackle a widely held stereotype ("But girls can't play football!"), she had the talent to kick a little schoolboy tail on the field. One small touchdown for Carly, one giant leap for womankind...over and over and over again. You go, girl! (I'm such a sap for underdog success stories like this.)
