Who is behind SportsDivas, Inc.?
A note from Monica Murphy Vargas, Founder of SportsDivas, Inc.
Growing up in a small suburb of Cleveland as the middle daughter of three girls, I was exposed to professional sports in the same way most girls are, by watching games with my dad and picking up other pieces over time. I played softball, golfed, swam competitively, dabbled in basketball, but took the route of cheerleader in a high school of 500 students.
I grew up going to Indians games at Municipal Stadium with my Dad, learned football from watching the Browns, being a cheerleader, and from playing flag football with friends. I followed my folks’ footsteps and headed to The Ohio State University where I bled scarlet and grey and became an obsessed and annoying Ohio State fan.
It wasn’t until I accepted a job with ESPN in 2002 that my deep dive into the sports world began. Elated with my new gig but concerned with my level of sports knowledge, I quickly inundated myself with sports rules, protocol, and news. It was then I realized that there was no quick way to really learn sports; no way to break through all the sports news and clutter targeted to educated fans. I didn’t have hours to spend watching games, listening to play-by-play, and I was embarrassed to ask others questions that I assumed I should already know the answers to.
Thankfully, over the last 10 years of building a career in sports sales and marketing, my knowledge and love of sports has grown exponentially; yet, I am constantly meeting women that are in the same place I was 10 years ago – interested in learning more about sports but unsure of how to begin and where to go. I’ve learned that most women, like me, were never taught the fundamentals of the game as our male counterparts were. We’ve been left to piecemeal our knowledge usually from listening to others, watching games and deciphering headlines. It’s no wonder many women find sports boring, confusing or not worth their time. Like anything else in life, if you don’t understand it, you’re not going to enjoy it.
Sports are the original reality TV. The outcome of the game, the drama that unfolds, the fans’ reactions – all make up the exciting story lines that we’ve come to expect and love from sports. It’s these stories that people buzz about the next day and how people socially connect. Let us help you discover the excitement and find the joy of understanding sports.
