Tina Thompson Breaks The Least Important Record In Sports

August 9, 2010 – 1:07 am by Ryan Phillips

Tina Thompson of the Los Angeles Sparks put an end to our long national nightmare last night by finally becoming the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer. Until last night’s game against the San Antonio Silver Stars, we were so on edge during Thompson’s assault on Lisa Leslie’s record – which we dubbed “The Chase” – we couldn’t bring ourselves to even watch WNBA games.

The 35-year-old Thompson, a 6’2″ forward, took 14 long years to break Leslie’s mark, and we give her serious credit for her perseverance. Hell, one WNBA game is excruciating, we can’t imagine someone lasting through 14 years of them. It must have felt like she was on a life-long episode of Fear Factor. Actually, more like a life-long episode of something really boring, like whatever it is they show on CNBC.

So did Thompson – who looks like David Allen Grier in a wig – break the least important record in sports? Yes, yes she did. At least we’ll make the assumption she didn’t use steroids in the process, though, so we are going to give her props for that.

Does anyone care? I’m sure someone cares, I just don’t know who they are or what planet they live on. In fact, I doubt I’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t think Tina Thompson was an original cast member of In Living Color.

It seems safe to say that 50 years days from now Tina Thompson’s name will be about as well-remembered to history as Roger Connor’s. You know, the guy who had the career home run record before Babe Ruth.

  5. Wow Branden, that’s your idea of the “funniest observation ever?” You must be as mindless as the blogger. Can’t stop laughing, huh? Put the mirror away, tends to help folks like you when those kinds of spells come on. Couple of real shallow morons, peas in the proverbial pod.

  6. I only watch the WNBA when no other sports are on, but my mom raised me right enough to not denigrate women for no reason. Tina Thompson has carried herself with grace and class, and does not deserve to have her accomplishments belittled by a ‘journalist’ that no one will remember once they click off this blog. If I were to ever meet Mr. (and I use that address loosely) Phillips in person, I would buss him in his fuckbox just on general principle…bastard…PEACE.

  7. I’m so glad to see so many responding to this mean spirited..jsut lown down classless artice. You are disgusting. This woman has worked hard at her craft and has done it with integrity. I’m sad I’m wasting time witing about it, but you are a piece of trash writer who is not a factor in any part of her life. Speaking of Life…get one. Loser
