Seems like yesterday, Andrea. You were way ahead of the curve on that issue yourself, and thankfully the team is in a much better place now.

I think the fissures are still there, however, and it remains to be seen how the team will respond to adversity. So far so good, and I think Pia is up to the challenge, but we won't know for sure until August.

With a different group of women that would have been a non-issue. I really felt bad for Solo.

Too bad the article is mostly off-base. He does ask some good questions like why Ryan was hired in the first place.
