Is the basketball player below a man or a woman? Too bad that dumb multi-colored basketball gave it away. Other than that, it’s hard to tell.
Yes, it’s that Weird Nuisance Brought on America–the WNBA–Lesbian Basketball, Season 10. The season started 1.5 weeks ago, but no-one noticed. Confucius say: What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree fell in the forest, and no-one was there to hear it, did it still make a noise?
Last night was the tenth anniversary of the founding of the WNBA, the “Women’s” National Basketball Association. Every season, I write a column making fun of this phony league of amateurs. They tried to market this as a low-cost family source of entertainment, but hard to take little Susie to a game, where the audience is full of butch women making out with each other (ditto for many of the players after the game finishes and they hit the locker room).
Hard to justify the 10th anniversary of something no-one watches (lower TV ratings than the XFL in its one and only season) and if you are an NBA (ie., REAL pro basketball) fan or sponsor, you are heavily subsidizing this silly league. Since I’ve said all you can say about the WNBA, this season I’m sticking to giving you the links to some of my past anti-WNBA produce: here, here, here, here, and here. All of them still apply today, and I think you’ll appreciate the humor.
And I’d be remiss to forget the F-U e-mail from a WNBA Coach (real b-ball coach Lute Olson’s Granddaughter) and the op-ed piece against me by a WNBA player.
