That’s the last thing I said before I kicked this kid’s ass.

I was 10 years old, walking home from school with my brothers, Tom and Larry. Some kid — a bully — started jawing at Larry real bad. He wouldn’t stop. Now, Larry is older than me. Having his little sis step in to defend him probably wasn’t the look he wanted. Too bad. I wasn’t having it.

I handed my books (and a hamster cage) to Tom. I was gonna knock this guy out.

I rolled up my sleeves and beat him up so badly that he ran away.

Oh wow. Cool.


This part very briefly jogged my memory
Quote:
That spring, David Stern announced that the NBA was starting the Women’s National Basketball Association — the WNBA. Eight women’s professional teams featuring the best players in the world: Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Dawn Staley … all of the stars from the national team.
When they made the announcement, I was coaching at Indiana State. I couldn’t buy Indiana Fever season tickets fast enough.

... considering the announcement was in 1996, the WNBA commenced play in 1997, but the Fever didn't start until 2000.
(But I get her intent)

Yes! Long and wordy, but right on.
