The famous "Summitt Stare" in action during a game. This look means Pat is not happy and you had better change your ways immediately.

We had the pleasure of having her speak once at a Tennessee Association of Realtor's convention. About 5 minutes after she started talking I knew immediately why her teams were so good.

This lady has what is known as PRESENCE in bold and all caps! She can command attention by just walking into a room and standing there.

The famous "Summitt Stare" is her trademark look she gives often and it usually always gets the results she's after.

One of my fellow Realtors, Lynn Canan (Collins), played for the Lady Vols in the early to mid 80s. Apparently Lynn is a bit camera shy, I couldn't find a photo of her anywhere.

Congratulation Coach Summitt, not only on win number 1,000 for for all you've contributed to the University and your players through the years.
