Geno’s Next Move

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

On Tuesday night, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma complained that his team's fans have grown spoiled after the Huskies' home arena was only half-full for the final home game in the career of superstar Maya Moore. I see Geno's point. UConn fans have gotten too used to winning, and winning ...

Women’s Basketball Sucks

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

In an effort to cheer up my Charger-loving friends, I have tried to think of something that sucks more than Nate Kaeding in the playoffs. Besides Norv Turner in the playoffs. The answer: women's college basketball. Now before you get your underpants in a bunch and claim this is just a sexist ...

The WNBA: It’s (paid off) Faaaannntastic

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Now into its second decade of existence, the WNBA constantly begs the question, "How in the goddamn hell is the WNBA into the second decade of its existence?" The once-marquee franchise of the league, the Houston Comets, no longer exists. Not because they moved or anything. They just flat-out folded. Because no ...

Remember the good 'ol days, when USA basketball went ahead and blew everybody out, leaving little doubt as to which country had the best basketball team in the world? Eh, neither do we. In fact, many of us were prepubescent or close to it when the original Dream Team trounced people ...

Define Degenerate…

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

It was a sad day for the WNBA. It was even sadder for myself. You know what's worse than a WNBA catfight? Actually watching it live. Now, I can explain. The game ran longer than the expected broadcast schedule, so I thought I was tuning in to something else. But I did keep ...

Well Then It Can’t Be All Bad. Right?

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

In case you weren't aware, that venerable institution known as the WNBA is now into it's 12th season. And throughout the NBA playoffs we've been treated to commercials featuring the league's "stars" sarcastically claiming the Fem-BA sucks. They also imply that since it has lasted this long, the WNBA has ...

Finally…A Reason to Watch Women’s Basketball…Maybe

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

Every once in a great while I'll swallow my pride and watch a marquee women's basketball game like Tennessee against Connecticut or something. And I will, without a doubt, cover women's basketball as a writer because, well, any job is a good job at this point.But it's pretty rare that ...

General Speculation

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Last week, I was complaining about how there was nothing interesting going on in the world of sports. My, how quickly things change. Now I have too many things to stuff into one post. But we'll start with the most important item.Bob Knight will never coach at Indiana again. Ever.Almost ...
