Yes, you heard it right. The woman once billed as the female Michael Jordan has announced her retirement, leaving diehard sports fans in stunned silence. I've spent the last 3 hours trying to find something of equal magnitude to compare it to, but there really is just about nothing that has had an equal effect. The only thing that even comes close as far as the effect on the American sports scene as a whole, is when Bip Roberts decided to hang up his cleats. Take from that what you will.
