Tank Master, what must I do to get more lottery balls?

Grasshopper, you must lose as many games as possible.

But Tank Master, there is a team that is lower than whale shit. How can we challenge that?

Grasshopper do not worry about that. Just make sure that every time you reach for the sky, always reach up and touch bottom.

I don't think "Oh - my wisdom tooth girl" will break the scoring record tonight. I know my Merc fan friends will be doing their darndest to make it happen at home.

Taurasi is 29 points away from the scoring record


Inside The W with Michelle Smith: Ever-Compelling Taurasi On Her Historic Career and Beyond
Quote:
If you weren’t a basketball player, what would you be doing right now?
Well, I went through a phase where I wanted to be a dentist and then I wanted to be an architect and right now I want to be a wine connoisseur. Maybe when I’m done playing I can fit all three things in. Actually, I think I’m on my way to being one of those things right now. I might have a Masters in one of them. Guess which one.

I would guess Architect. I don't think you get a Masters in Dentistry or wine tasting.

I'm not sure about the tech call either (I thought it should be a delay of game warning), but yes Cappie did touch the ball.

If you can stay sober through the entire program. But perhaps she is doing an independent study program.

Is George hurt or did Phoenix just finally realise that she can't guard your average brick without fouling it?

"Foot race between Taurasi and Pondexter". I hope Taurasi wasn't trying there as that wasn't close.

It was a delay of game. It was Chicago's 2nd, thus the tech was called. Ended up giving Cappie an early night.

Thanks - I didn't realize it was Chicago's 2nd. Maybe the announcers would have explained that if they hadn't been so busy denying that Cappie touched the ball. I think it went down as a team technical. Taurasi shot 2 technical free throws for Cappie's ejection, so she apparently drew two back-to-back.

Solid loss. Good end to this road trip! Love the way our "veteran" "leader" got herself tossed just as the game was getting close to seal the defeat. Clutch ejection for sure.

2-8, hard to argue with the results so far! The tank rolls on!

Been in a crappy mood today so was genuinely glad to run into something that made me literally laugh out loud.

The snark is strong in this one... Wink

That female ref was horrible.She called a travel when it was a jump all. Then she called a foul on Cappie when Cappie didn't even touch DT. I do agree that Cappie should have kept her cool but her teammates should have tried to keep her away from the female ref. What is up with Stocks?All I seen her do is scream at the players all night and call out plays like she was coaching a high school team. When the refs made bad calls, she didn't even try and fight for her players by talking to the refs.

What really done Chicago in were the unforced turnovers when they were closing the gap. Hope that Chicago is not tanking. But looking at this coach and the way the team plays, makes me wonder.

Despite the 3-12, understandable vs BG, I thought Boyette looked pretty good. Generally speaking, I think they have to figure out how to put her in better positions to succeed. There's no reason with her size and athleticism not to be able to get her enough touches close to the rim so that she can shoot 50+% from the field.

And if you determine she doesn't fit your system or whatever, then trade her for something that fits better.

In a twelve team league it is very difficult to acquire top level talent with trades. Teams that have good to great players are not going to trade them away. A GM will jump on a trade only if you make them an offer that they can't refuse. Wink
