Another item sent to me by many readers while I was away was the report that Sheryl Swoopes, star WNBA player, has made it official: She’s a lesbian and is endorsing a lesbian cruise line.
Imagine that: Lesbians in the WNBA. No way! You’ve gotta be making this up. I can’t believe it. Really? Lesbians in the WNBA? Who’d have thought such a thing? You’re kidding, right?
Gee, after 30 pants suits and 10 pairs of sensible shoes per player, I’d never have guessed.
Here’s a highlight from this year’s annual anti-WNBA column:
“Look at the 7’2″ Margo Dydek of Connecticut’s WNBA team – if you dare. . . . They aren’t making a scale version of Dydek Barbie anytime soon. Dyslexic young girls might unscramble the letters of her surname and get the right idea of what the WNBA is really about. That’s the image from which the WNBA is desperately trying to get away. But it’s stuck with it like white on rice (apologies to low-carbers).”
