"Jetlag." "Dental procedure." "Dizziness from dental procedure." These are the excuses professionals come up with. Think you can do better? Well now's your chance! Come up with the best excuse and maybe Diana will use it in her next non-game.

I'm still sticking with "sprained bun."

I dunno it looked like LJ came back a little too soon or played to much to soon because she looked a little out of sorts. Wink

So I'm going with the fact that when you have your wisdom teeth out and even 1 is impacted it sucks. So she probably wasn't ready to come back.

Wasnt this procedure done a week ago? LJ played 25 minutes while still being bothered by the jetlag because she couldnt sleep the past 2 days.

I had four wisdom teeth removed at once. Two were impacted. I was back at work 3 days later.

She lost her drivers licence for the next month due to another DUI, and had no way to get to work.

Oh I think we've kept our sense of humor, except with the few people who are comparing this issue to murder Rolling Eyes

and the excuse will be plantar fasciitis because ex-GM Seth Sulka loved that excuse so he left them the memo on how to spell it and dammit, they are going to use it!

How could this happen with LifeLock?

How about this for an excuse? LifeLock inadvertently locked her in her home, she missed practice and therefore Gaines couldn't let her play. They wouldn't be as well-oiled a machine with Taurasi missing practice.

Must have been a double date.

Anyway, I hope both are back playing in September when their teams come to Connecticut. I love watching them play (basketball).

You can still give prizes! I was hoping folks would have some fun with it but the same debate seems to have moved over here.

I think she's heartbroken over K. Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson.

The PR guy said that she practiced Wednesday, was expected to play (on the starting lineup sheet that's handed out about an hour before the game), and then felt dizzy during warmups.

No reason, I take from that message, that she will miss any more time unless she's diagnosed with something else stemming from the dizziness.

Again, we'll see ... and we'll see if she's dizzy when she's getting $500,000 in Turkey (or wherever she's playing).

True that! Now back on topic, I say Diana will get an allergic reaction to the meds taken for the dizziness. Things have to flow naturally see.

When Taurasi finally gets out on the court, she probably wants to kick some ass and not actually look bad. So they have to lose just a couple more games to lock this project up. Keep helping them with the excuses. Very Happy

Yep, and the first step is Brittney Griner.

Wait...are we talking about Taurasi or Amber Cox?

Makes no difference. If any player called the shots for her team, it'd be Taurasi.... with maybe Candace Parker coming in second.

I had 4 of them out when I was about 23 years old, all four were impacted and the idiot surgeon didn't prescribe antibiotic, so then they got infected.

I had my tonsils out at 19, at that age, these are not '"procedures". if the tooth was infected for some time before removal, that kind of thing can sap your body of energy and anti-bodies.

For all the complaining about Diana, at least she's making up excuses, instead of just saying she not playing for "personal reasons." I am starting to think there was something in the water in London. Many of the players just don't seem that thrilled to get back to their regular jobs.

Nope. But if I could return to chasing little kids around all day in 3 days after having a rather invasive wisdom tooth removal process, princess Diana should be able to return to a gig, even in a reduced capacity after a week. That's IF a wisdom tooth thing is even what happened. Again we're all speculating here because they won't tell us anything at all.

Apologies, though, that's not what you were looking for.

You can still give prizes! I was hoping folks would have some fun with it but the same debate seems to have moved over here.

I think she's heartbroken over K. Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson.


Kristen Stewart. Worlds most talentless actress.


She's the highest paid hollywood actress to date so, someone thinks she has talent! Wink


I think she's pretty damn good. There are a few off beat movies she did on Netflix and she just has a knack for pouring her heart into a role. So maybe she's a bit one dimensional in that she tends to play the same saucy, dark, vulnerable waif like girl, but she has that act down pat, and she can do the transformation thing too.

She has a substantial body of work. About 28 movies in 13 years. I've seen some of it, and I've seen Twilight. I don't know about the books, are there books? But the screen play of Twilight, which is the only one I saw, and IMO the screen play borrows from Roswell and Buffy the Vampire slayer. Good girl, good vampire, good girl good alien. And I think the role she plays is sort of packaged, so I don't think it's a real awe inspiring thing for her to begin with, albeit it made her rich.

I've seen:
Speak, Welcome To The Rileys, The Yellow Handkerchief, and Adventure Land and The Cake Eaters, these are all above average films IMO and her acting is very solid and credible in all of these roles.

This is typical career path, she was a very good actress, which is how she get's the Twilight role, and the first big payout, and then she gets caught in packaged hyped films with IMO a very average screen play. So she was damn good when she started and the payoff jobs are very average in my opinion.
