I couldn't believe it. No local girl is on the team, no real rivalry between Baylor and a Miami team....just a chance for the dutiful media to let us know what their hero is doing today.
Made me want to gag.
To the degree that I follow the sport, I root for the UConn Lady Huskies in college women’s basketball. UConn has had the most dominant women’s basketball program over the last couple of decades under coach Auriemma.
That said, the Baylor team this year was phenomenally great, breaking all sorts of records. I think it is possible to think of the team being honored (if you think of an invite by Obama as an honor due to the office) as being newsworthy even outside of Texas.
This was not just the 2012 champion team; this was one of the great teams of all time.
Certainly it will help his election as most of the Lady Bears bear a certain resemblance to Obama.
The link goes to CBSDFW ... that’s Dallas. Just curious .... where does Florida fit in?
But they didn’t do it- someone else did.
