As we all know, Candace Parker needs a storage unit to house all the awards and honors the Naperville Central graduate has picked up over the years.
I would have linked to her bio on the Los Angeles Sparks team Website, but it is strangely devoid of content.
But she hasn't won an ESPY. Yes, the promotional device has eluded Candace Parker. She must be steamed.
But fear not, Candace will get her chance to set things straight. She was named one of the four candidates for Female Athlete of the Year on Tuesday along with IRL driver Danica Patrick, golfer Lorena Ochoa and skier Lindsey Vonn.
Again, it was a bit surprising to see nothing about the ESPY nomination on the Sparks team Website. There was statistical information -- Candace is averaging 17.2 points and 9.4 rebounds -- and game stories, but nothing about the ESPYs.
It's almost like the award isn't important.
