minor league basketball wackiness
ashley mcelhiney, the first woman ever to coach a men's professional sports team, got canned yesterday. what makes this story really wheels off is that the owner actually tried to fire her during the game when she played a player that the owner didn't want played that night. anyways, sure we could talk about the "would this have ever happened to a male coach", but honestly, i'm much more interested in the spectacle of an owner trying to get on the court and firing the coach midway through the game. i mean what if a coach decided to hold out for contract negotiations during the middle of a game?
