Mary Osborne, Ambassador!

Apr 21 2008 / Monday

A little note from Mary...

"Thirty five years ago this year, Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs at the Houston Astrodome in the notorious Battle of the Sexes. Families, teammates and friends gathered around televisions in record numbers to watch history in the making. With an audience of 50 million, the tennis match is still the most-watched in history. The widespread media coverage had a profound cultural impact, as it allowed people across the world to see what was literally thought impossible a woman defeating a man.

On the anniversary of the Battle of the Sexes, there is perhaps no greater example of how media coverage shapes our perceptions. The Billie Awards, held on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills, Calif., recognizes the positive power the media possess. Actress Sharon Osbourne, Desperate Housewives star Doug Savant and Rapper Master P were just a few of the celebrities who joined Nancy Lieberman, Tracy Austin, Michelle Kwan and 40 of the world's most phenomenal female athletes in the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel."

Words cannot even begin to describe the feelings of emotion running throughout my body on this warm Tuesday evening. Never knowing what to expect on a "Hollywood" based evening like this, I had chills running throughout my body, tears of proud emotions filling my eyes and a smile of joy that could be seen all the way back to my hometown in little old Ventura. It is a huge honor for me to be attending the Billies as a Ambassador for the sport of surfing among some of sports' most respected female athletes from different generations and sporting backgrounds. I hope that one year you all can share this memorable night with me by my side! Enjoy the pictures... MARY

  4. Some times Limo service is cheaper than taxis for airport rides. So if you are planning to fly for vacation or pleasure call few limousine services and you will be surprised to know that the rates are not that high as compaired to Taxi, most of the time its a few dollars more than a taxi and some times even less than a cab. Some of the limo service providers offer shares rides and they are deffinetly cheaper than cab.
    Try it next time and see it yourself!!
