About Curve

This issue, we chose basketball champion Sue Bird of the WNBA’s Seattle Storm as our cover girl. This newly out, four-time Olympic gold medal winner is a lesson in strength, persistence, and humility. I hope you enjoy Lucy J. Madison’s excellent interview on page 62. And if Sue Bird isn’t enough to inspire you to support your favorite team or athlete, be sure to go see Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone, when it is released nationally on September 22. Battle of the Sexes is about the famous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. King and Riggs played in the Houston Astrodome, and the match was nationally televised in 1973, long before ESPN and the Tennis Channel
