Jennie and the Billies

Here's a good blog post about Jennie Finch and her appearance at the Billies:

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had the privilege of attending the Billies with my daughter Abby. The Billies are an awards event named after Billie Jean King recognizing the positive portrayal of women in sports. The highlight was Abby acting as SunValleyOnline’s cub reporter and interviewing an array of sports figures ranging from Billie Jean King herself to Jimmy Connors to Jennie Finch. The athletes were incredibly nice to her asking her as many questions as she was asking them.

A private concert by Elton John afterwards as well? Pretty cool.
