Field hockey sisterhood
I confess I'm completely absorbed by the royal wedding. In an effort to forge a connection with the event, I am looking to the playing fields, to that celebrated tradition in sisterhood: Field hockey.
Kate Middleton will soon be a princess, but she once could be counted among chicks with sticks. Indeed, she was captain of her high school field hockey team — just like the Sapphist Gazetteer! Here, you can see Kate showing good form in the middle of the action, and, at left, the Sapphist Gazetteer is apparently catching her breath... But never mind that. I think it's charming that we both favored the jaunty headband.
