She doesnt care who you are, but if you do something good, shell write about you.Mary Garber was a pioneering sports journalist in a time where women were rarely a part of the newspaper business.

Garber was a sportswriter for fifty-six years and was the first woman to receive the Associated Press Sports Editors Red Smith Award, presented for major contributions in sports journalism.
