Sports History to Be Made Sunday 3/3

Don't know how many NFL fans are among my regular readers, but for those who aren't up on it this coming Sunday is set to become something of a historical date-of-note for the sport: Lauren Silberman, an MIT graduate and former soccer player, is set to get an actual, official NFL tryout at the Regional Combine - making her the first woman in NFL history to do so.

Her chances aren't considered to be all that spectacular (but then, Tim Tebow has an NFL career so who can really say anymore?) but if nothing else it's going to be a conversation-piece in the sports world for a bit and a Trivia question in the near future, so... keep an eye on that, I guess.
