The "Throw Like a Girl" Myth, Busted
In honor of yesterday's first-ever female ski jump, a moment of female athletic emancipation. Mythbusters dedicated an episode to the pervasive theory of the lame-ass female pitching arm. And while they did find some gender differences in stance and body angle the idea that girls throw "worse" is basically bullshit. Training is everything, as proved by the male/female pitch-off finale.
