Is This Really Fun?

90 to 30?
Howabout 30 to 90?

I know the UConn Women’s basketball program is sainted and beyond anything but the most reverential adoration. But come on.

90 to 30?
105 to 28?
119 to 50?
102 to 45?
105 to 49?
101 to 41?
94 to 37?
97 to 25?

Is that sports? The fawning goes on how well they play and how god-like is the coach. But is that what we want from our squeeky clean sports? Massacres? Scores run up crazily high?

This is getting a little stale.


  1. From what little I know of ordinary basketball games, it sounds to me like they have an average offense and a vastly superior defense.

    If everybody ramped up their defensive game, basketball would turn into a slow-scoring sport like baseball. Maybe that would be less fun.

  2. Imagine putting an eitrne region or country inside of a microwave oven.That is what they are getting at.DARPA has developed portable units for the sake of crowd control. While not free energy, it is a microwave weapon deemed less than lethal. If you are in contact with anything metal- it gets hot within 2 seconds of the device being turned on. Just think what it would do to your eye if you had a metal splinter lodged in it? Amalgum fillings anyone? Artificial joints? Metal eyeglass frames?

What do you think?
