"Aformer college soccer player tried to kick her way through the glass ceiling at the NFL on Sunday.
28-year-old Lauren Silberman became the first woman to try out for the league."
Lauren Silberman is a fitness fanatic, who played soccer at the University of Wisconsin, but she`s a female, and she had no business trying out for the NFL as a kicker.
Silberman failed miserably, quitting in shame and humiliation after only two kicks, neither of which traveled even 20 yards.
Silberman is so unfamiliar with football that it took her forever just teeing up the football.
She attributed her abject failure to a quadriceps injury she suffered earlier in the week while preparing for the tryouts.
No sweetheart you failed because you are a woman trying to make it in a man`s sport.
Shame on Silberman for taking the place of a qualified male at the NFL combine. Shame on the NFL for going along with this publicity stunt. Shame on the media outlets that portrayed Silberman as a women`s rights pioneer.
