There is much to talk about, mainly women’s college basketball. Other than that nothing has happened, has it?
Donald Trump was indicted today.
The Iowa guard Caitland Clark put up the most remarkable performance the other day. No one has ever done what she has done. Not Wilt, not James, not Jordan – a 40 point triple double in college.
Donald Trump, Jr. has pointed the finger at Alan Bragg and said it was George Soros backed with help or outrage from Pol Pot and Mao.
With 3:20 left in the game Louisville guard Hailey Van Lith tried talking smack to Clark. The response? “You’re down 30 points. Shut up.” Whoa.
I don’t know if this is true, but I believe that Dancing With The Stars invite has been turned down by Don Jr. However, Eric Trump said he was available, and turned down by DWTS.
There are many people who like Caitland: Steph, James, Mahomes, and Kevin Durant who first saw her play in an under 17 league. As Steph Curry said that when you can shoot like she does there are no bad shots.
Trump is innocent (currently).
Clark shows little emotion when she’s playing but she does make a few gestures. She did John Cienna “You don’t see me” gesture. She does the Jordan “come on” raised arm thing.
There are possible indictments to follow. Many are mentioned however one has not been mentioned – rape.
Clark can make a 3 pointer from inside the circle at mid-court.
The Republicans are already lining up saying this is political. Personally, I want to be George Soros. I had no idea how powerful he is. Oh yeah there are these papers that spell out something called “a factual basis.” Surely, someone must have alternate facts?
Friday night is the big game at 7pm Friday. Little known Virginia Tech will face off against LSU, which I want to point out the “Pardon the Interruption” guys can’t spell. (Hint: it’s spelled “L”…”S”…”U”.) And those two have never seen Virginia Tech play. Why would they watch a number one seed?
At 9pm will be South Carolina and Iowa. Can Clark beat SC? What will South Carolina do to stop her? Mug her? It will be a heck of a game. What will be interesting to see is the championship game which will feature Virginia Tech (I predict they’ll beat USL – whoops that’s spelled backwards) against either Iowa or South Carolina. The Hokie women will have to have the game of their lives and I hope Coach Kenny will have his players stay under the basket to get a second or third attempt.
BTW Trump has been indicted. In case, you hadn’t heard.
The other interesting thing about Clark is that she currently makes $192,000 from endorsements from six or eight backers. The WNBA pays $72,000 for a top level player. Clark could play for them in front of a crowd of 1,700 or she could stay at Iowa to sold out crowds of 18,000. What would you do?
