LOL! Babes, beer and bacon. Sounds like a good time to me. (And I'll bet you thought BBB meant Better Business Bureau.)

You haven’t seen professional women basketball players. Most of them are uglier than moochele.

From a strictly sexist, male standpoint, sexier unis would help considerably. No red-blooded male wants to see women running around in the potato sacks they call shorts.

Beer and bacon paid for by Title IX funding? Just a WAG.

All three promotions prompted some backlash, whether it be for promoting drinking or making a mockery of women's sports. . . . Colorado faced criticism that offering men's tickets at a women's game was selling its own program short.

It amuses me when feminists complain that women's basketball should be considered on the same level as men's basketball. That's a joke. Watching women trying to play basketball is like watching men trying to do the splits or the balance beam. They're just not that good at it. So I can't blame the schools for offering promotions to get people to come to the games. Any average men's intramural team would demolish a women's varsity team, no contest.

” even if it were free, real men couldn’t care less dykeball... specially the fugly ones “

Whoa!!
Guessing you didn’t have any daughters that played or wanted to play on the college level?
Collegiate woman’s basketball has some great programs with some very “normal”; straight, good looking players. My school; Iowa State; gets a large turnout at our woman’s BB games; 13,000 thousand or so at some games.

It’s very much a family atmosphere. No they are not men; but they are still great athletes and top students. The program is a great representative of the university.

nope, she played volleyball, but i get your point

i guess i'm used to only seeing the ugly side of girls B-Ball, but then again, i gave up watching Pro Thug-ball years ago and now watch very little college ball either with all the tatted out thugs in training

Understand!
There are too many of those programs.

We are lucky here and have a very special program. A great coach and great student athletes. I’ve known a handful of them over the years; you couldn’t find better college kids than most of these girls.

You know, many years ago they said much the same thing about women tennis players.

I have taken a look at some of those female basketball players. Is the bacon separate from the “babes”?

“You haven’t seen professional women basketball players. Most of them are uglier than moochele.”

Yup. I dated a member of our NCAA Div 1 volleyball women’s team and another swimmer who won in the same NCAA D1 swim meets. Great bods. The hoops team are not only umm...Moochelle-looking but they’re taller than most dudes so it’s a turn off.

I think UConn women’s BB team had a lot of support.

That’s more like it. Look at the women volleyball players. Not beach volleyball, but just the regular high school and college female unis. That’s the kind of unis female bb players should have. Heavily tattoed women in baggy potato sack unis just won’t attract males.

You’d think they’d use Birkenstocks and Indigo Girls CDs as lures instead.
