Let's Play The Feud: The WNBA Edition

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Man, there are fights and then there are fiiiiights. This one is pure gold on so many levels that I can't even explain what's going on. I know what we can do! Let's have a scavenger hunt!!! Please look for the following items and check them off your list as we go along....

Everybody's All-American, Candace Parker getting tangled up with a Detroit Shock player Plenette Pierson.
2. Parker taking down said player with a Cobra Kai like leg sweep.
3. The benches clearing.
4. Coaches Michael Cooper and Bill Laimbeer trying to break the pile up.
5. None other than Rick Mahorn tossing WNBA star Lisa Leslie to the floor.
6. Another Sparks player sticking up for Leslie by punching Mahorn.
7. Shock player, Cheryl Ford blowing out her knee as she attempts to restrain Pierson.
8. All of the Pam Ward replay goodness.


Good lord that was crazy. Did you catch them all? Go back and watch the beginning again and check out Rick Mahorn just chuck Leslie across the floor. Unbelievable. It looked like he was just trying to play peacekeeper, but I have a feeling people are going to be recalling his Bad Boy days in the fallout to follow.


Welcome to Tuesday Night (Dyke)Fights!

1. the fact Pammy had the call is epic
2. I'd advise Ron Artest not to watch TV Wednesday

If a fight happens and no one was watching, or if those watching didn't care or know who was fighting, did it happen?

David Stern might see dollar signs, but the fact an ACL went cabloooey during the melee is hysterical.

I wish I were influential enough to call an ACL rupture a Title IX.

I was watching the third rain delay showing of 'In My Own Words' with Nate Robertson when this was going on? Damn. Whose mic was that around the :18-:30 area? If that was Mahorn saying 'I got Ya,' he certainly did.

Definably not what the league needed. I've been debating checking out the WNBA, but I guess stuff like this is why I don't watch the NBA in the first place.

What is it about Detroit sports riots and national announcers saying "inexcusable behavor"? By the way, this MIGHT have been a publicity move.

Not positive, but I think it's Laimbeer. You can also hear him saying "go to the bench!"

Who would have thought a Bill Laimbeer team would be full of punks and cheap-shot artists - even if they are chicks. By the way - was the "lady" on the far right actually one of the Wayans brothers researching White Chicks 2?

If the WNBA doesn't have a "no leaving the bench" rule, they probably will after that.

I love how both ladies calling the game have absolutley NO EMOTION in their voices during the whole fight. Now THAT takes some skill.

He should have decked her. It looks like she was slapping him on the back, in a chick punch way.

LOL. It's Rick Mahorn, for christ's sake.

I wonder if David Stern is gonna go let Candace Parker work on her Rap album now.

And shouldn't Cheryl Ford have gotten the Eight Belles treatment?

With Candace a Chicago native, this looked like Bulls-Pistons ca. 1989 all over again.

I half expected Doug Collins to be thrown across the scorer's table.

I was actually watching this when it happened.

Consider me embarrassed to say so, but I was watching the Malice at the Palace live and whatever this thing was live.

I turned the channel to ESPN 2 to see what was going on in the Dunk Contest/3 point contest, and the game was running long so I watched. The look on Mahorn's face when the one girl hits him on the back is hysterical. I didn't know what was going to happen. The WNBA.....Where Assault Happens!

Hilarious, but no different than any other fight....
To use a ridiculous quote from the million ESPN replays of Malice at the Palace.

"This will be the day that the WNBA changed forever."

Give me a break....fights are overated....They should stop saying "inexcusable" or "a fight marred the game"...

I love how Pam Ward yells "HERE WE GO!" as the fight begins and later joins in with the Doris Burke "inexcusable" act. I think Pam was ready to throw.

AA rips some poor retarded DJ in Minnesota for comments like that but they are ok here?

I don't care, I'm not a dyke. Just be consistant.
