OPEN THREAD: Ask me anything

Hello, friends.

First of all, let me start with: Thank you. Two days ago, after four months of working full-time on Power Plays, I launched paid subscriptions. Your support so far has blown me away. (If you missed the announcement, you can read more about it in Monday’s newsletter. The first post for paid subscribers only will be a week for today, on Wednesday, March 4.)

I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind you that this is the last day that you can get 30% off your Power Plays subscription. I am never going to offer this much of a discount again, so don’t miss it.

Okay, now that the business side of things are out of the way, I thought today we’d open things up for a group discussion, because honestly, the community we’re building here at Power Plays has been one of my favorite parts of this entire experience.

So, today, ask me anything. Be it about Power Plays, paid subscriptions, my career, my dog (PLEASE ask about my dog), my thoughts on Maria Sharapova’s retirement, my favorite trash television shows, it’s all fair game. Right after I take Mo (the aforementioned dog) out for a short walk, ’ll be around all morning — through 12:00 pm ET — and then in and out for the rest of the day.


If you don’t have any questions, I’d love just to hear from you anyways. Tell me what you want to see at Power Plays going forward, what woman or nonbinary person in sports has inspired you lately, how you’re doing on your resolutions. It’s been a very nerve-wracking few days, I’m excited just to chat.

Again: Thank. You.


(This will be the last time an open thread will be open to subscribers who are only on the free email list; going forward, threads will be for paid subscribers only.)

I searched for the oldest photos of Maria Sharapova on Getty Images, and found this. The official caption reads: “Maria Sharapova, March 25, 2001 at the Ericsson Open with russian wooden doll.” I am glad this photo exists. (Photo by Art SEITZ/Gamma-Rapho)
