Mike Wise at the Washington Post tries to create a controversy where none has existed.
A question to WNBA fans out there: does anyone really miss the KissCam? Did anyone even want the KissCam? Seriously? Hell, I never even noticed its absense! A quote:
A rite of spring in the NBA -- where couples of mixed creeds, ethnicities and ages are suckered by peer pressure into puckering -- is somehow taboo in the WNBA.
"Rite of spring"? You gotta be kidding me. It's a frigging promotion used to kill time, nothing more. This isn't a hate article, but it has to be the dumbest article ever written about the WNBA that I've read about in my two years of following the league. I mean, you actually have to click on the link for not just its stupidity, but its offensiveness as well. This article manages to offend both straights and lesbians, which is a rare two-fer.
Come to think of it, I would like to thank Ron Terwilliger, Bill Bolen, and the rest of the Atlanta Dream organization for not using a ball cannon like the Liberty uses. Following Mr. Wise's logic, I'm sure that the reason we don't use it is to avoid offending any sufferers of testicular cancer.
