    the new year in their 1-1 draw with Swansea. Scott Dann cancelled out Gylfi
    Sigurdssons free-kick opener as the Eagles ended a run of five straight Premier
    League defeats.It felt good, we knew we had to get something as we couldnt go
    another game under the pressure (of losing again) so it was a very important
    result for us, Pardew told Sky Sports. It was a tough game, there was a lot of
    energy and commitment from both teams but we just did enough. The start of the
    second half was our best period and that changed the game a little bit. We knew
    we needed to get off that 31 points because it was really starting to strangle
    us! Scott Dann said Palace had to dig in to secure a point in their 1-1 draw
    against Swansea Pardew also reserved special praise for Emmanuel Adebayor, who
    made his first start for the club at the Liberty Stadium.He had a couple of
    moments that were top drawer, said Pardew. He was good and you can see he will
    add something to us.But we need more players back, next week I get Connor
    Wickham and Gayley (Dwight Gayle) back and that will make a big difference to us
    because we look like we still need a bit more going forward at this level.
    Crystal Palace forward Emmanuel Adebayor says he is happy to be playing regular
    football again Palaces goalscorer Dann, meanwhile, said that his side had to dig
    in to secure the point.It was important, especially with the run weve been on of
    late to stop that run - and we did that, the defender told Sky Sports.We had to
    dig in at times, but second half we came out and made more of a game of it, got
    the goal and nearly nicked a second. We started the season really well, but now
    weve had a not so good run it was about making sure we didnt lose. Also See:

    red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a
    season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at
    Rexall Place. ESPN the Magazines Nov. 28 Tall Ball issue, which focuses on the
    varied aspects of height and sport, prompted us to ask around about
    #tallgirlproblems. Not to stereotype, but tall women often have some specific
    challenges that they deal with. But even the most annoying stuff wouldnt make
    any of the women we spoke with want to give up even an inch of their height.Its
    just sometimes ... hey, the next time you see a tall woman, please try to
    refrain from asking horrible corny stuff like Hows the weather up there? All
    tall women thank you in advance.Brianna Turner, 6-foot-3, Notre Dame forwardIts
    mostly things like sleeves not being long enough. Or knee-high boots that are
    not knee-high at all on me. And I always say when we do push-ups its harder if
    you are tall and have longer arms. Or doing pull-ups.Alaina Coates, 6-4, South
    Carolina centerMy top pet peeve is finding jeans long enough. Ill just have to
    roll them up and make them look like theyre supposed to be that way. So when its
    really cold, my ankles will be freezing.You can shop online, but if they dont
    fit right, you have to send them back. And most of the time, Im just like,
    Forget it. Lisa Leslie, 6-5, former Los Angeles Sparks star and Naismith Hall of
    FamerI would say my No. 1 tall girl problem is that people have to ask me every
    day, Do you play basketball? Ive had people make comments about my height every
    day of my life. That can get annoying. Im thankful for it; I used it. You dont
    go around commenting on someones weight or size, so its just really annoying.
    Its the kind of thing that people should just say to themselves: Wow, shes
    really tall. But I dont need to be informed that Im tall. I get it.Tina
    Thompson, 6-2, WNBAs all-time scoring leaderIve been blessed to be able to find
    clothes and shoes; for me that hasnt been that difficult. Probably the most
    annoying are the awkward, lame conversations and the cliché one-liners. Like, Is
    the view better up there? What do you say to stuff like that?Just say hello,
    introduce yourself and lets move on to politics, sports, whatever you want to
    talk about. The lead-in with the tall-girl joke was very unnecessary.Sylvia
    Fowles, 6-6, Minnesota Lynx, 2016 WNBA defensive player of the yearA lot of
    jeans that come in longer lengths have flared legs. I hate flares. I hate wide
    legs. I feel like all tall-girl jeans should be skinny. So when I do find a pair
    I like that fits, I buy them in every color.If someone asks me the basketball
    question, I change it up. I say, Oh, actually I play water polo. And nobody
    really wants to talk to me much about that.Swin Cash, 6-2, just retired from New
    York LibertyAirplanes would be first. My jeans would be another. I get mad all
    the time, because jeans just arent cut properly.Then theres the Tall guys like
    short girls, and vice versa ... that can be a tall girl problem.With the
    standard hotel-room shower, and youre trying to wash your hair, you have to
    maneuver around.You are always going to get asked if you play volleyball or
    basketball. And if you were to say that you didnt play sports, people look at
    you with a kind of disdain, like, You wasted your height! Yourr height just
    makes them think you automatically have to be an athlete.dddddddddddd.Nneka
    Ogwumike, 6-2, Los Angeles Sparks, 2016 WNBA MVPOne of the shortcomings of being
    tall -- ha ha -- is that you can never swing your feet when youre sitting on a
    stool.And you always have to be at the back of a photo. I like being in the
    front. Thats why a lot of times in photos, you see me lying down in front. I
    want to be seen, you know?Pants arent so bad, because nowadays there are a lot
    of different outlets to buy from. I do almost all of my shopping online, and the
    clothes are super trendy, which is awesome. I love it.Another huge issue is
    sitting on airplanes. Actually, though, Im not sure thats just a tall girl
    problem. Thats like a human-rights issue. (Laughs)I also feel like climbing
    stairs is a little more difficult for us, because of the leverage. And I feel
    more tired after stairs, and thats confusing to me because Im athletic.People
    always assume Im a basketball or volleyball player. One guy, though, came up and
    asked me if I was a ballerina. I said, Are you being serious? and he seemed like
    he was.The short guys are always like, I love me a tall girl. And its like,
    Seriously?I love shoes, and people will say, Why are you wearing heels? Youre
    tall already. And I said, That has nothing to do with me wearing heels. So thats
    pretty annoying.On peoples reactions to seeing her with sister Chiney Ogwumike,
    who is 6-3: Its always like, Where are you guys from? and Im like, Is that
    question just because were tall?But overall, I have no issues with it. Its a
    beautiful thing.Jantel Lavender, 6-4, Los Angeles Sparks, 2016 WNBA Sixth Woman
    of the YearThe biggest one is clothes, although its gotten better over the
    years. But you cant just go into a store -- if something comes up -- and find
    pants that fit. Or getting a dress thats long enough for your arms. Or shoes --
    you cant just go get a nice pair of heels to wear to an event.I shop at ASOS.com
    -- they have a tall section that is amazing. I have so many clothes now that Im
    never caught off guard.I would say toilets are pretty low. Its just so far down,
    and then the stall doors arent that high all the time, so your heads sticking
    up. But I think it becomes second-nature for us to adjust.Candace Parker, 6-4,
    Los Angeles Sparks, 2016 WNBA Finals MVPIm against stereotypes, so I hate
    fitting the stereotype. People are like, Oh, you must play basketball. And Im
    like [lowers voice and sounds a bit disgusted], Yes.Has girls embarrassment over
    being tall changed? I hope it has. My daughter is around so many tall women, I
    dont think it registers to her that shes dwarfing her classmates. Shes tall; she
    holds her shoulders back with pride. We tease her about her big feet, and she
    loves them and her long legs.I think its generational. I wasnt always the
    happiest being as tall as I was, but I learned to accept it and then love it.Aja
    Wilson, 6-5, South Carolina forwardOther than clothes sometimes, I dont really
    see any problems with being tall. ' ' '
