Any Duke Loss is a good Duke Loss
Wednesday, April 05, 2006
I actually watched women's basketball for the first time last night (or at least the last 5 minutes of regular time and the whole OT). I learned a bunch of things which I'll get to in bullet form in a second.
It's always a good thing to see any Duke player/supporter upset. I already knew this transcended sports (lacrosse, hockey, soccer, etc), but I now know that it also crosses the gender line. I found myself rejoicing in the disappointed looks of the Duke women.
Things I learned:
- Women's basketball is completely unwatchable
- Many women wear mouthguards while playing basketball
- There are people that have an uglier basketball shot than I
- Women's basketball players flop like European soccer players when fouled
