Last week, Business Week wrote a whole long feature on how the WNBA is “Not Just a Punch Line Anymore.” Uh, yes, it is.
Clownball, Season 13
For years, we here at DebbieSchlussel.com have brought you a bursting pinata full of WNBA mockery, including here and here, among many others. Yet another of its teams just folded in December. And that Weird Nuisance Brought on America–that Waste of National Broadcast Airtime–is still a joke. Because. It’s. Not. Real. Basketball. It really should be called the NLLNBC–the Non-Lipstick Lesbian National Basketball Coven.
And, in case you forgot about what a joke this fake “pro” sports league is, these abnormally tall man-chicks reminded you over the weekend, when all of the players of both teams stopped guarding a player during the WNBA All-Star Game (what do you call an “All Star” game with no stars in it?) and walked out of the way, so that she could make a dunk in the closing minutes of this sideshow game. Skip their BS and start watching at 34 seconds in for this monumental sports moment of our time:
Well, gee, that was such an achievement. Almost as much of an achievement as when one WNBA player got married . . . to a man. And another had a baby . . . through natural intercourse . . . with a man (at least we’re told that’s how it was conceived). Both of those events got a ton of press-releasing and PR-ing from this fake sports league that no-one watches.
To remind you, Jimmy Kimmel said it best, last year, when a WNBA player achieved a dunk–the first in six years. Apparently the commercial he made got to them and they decided to speed of their timeline of one forced, faked dunk every six years.
