Pat Summitt is my hero. Everything about this woman is amazing. She is everything ive ever wanted to be. She's tough and she doesn't take shit from anybody. Everything that comes out of her mouth inspires me to be a better person and to work harder.

This reminds me so much of my daughter. That girls lives basketball, works hard and puts in so much extra time and effort she amazes me.
