All The Assholes Live In Texas

Girls high school basketball is an interesting sport. Generally the teams are either very good and function like real basketball teams, or the teams are very bad and function more like a gym class. This leads to great games with good fundamentals and playmaking between the good teams, freaking disasters of games that can barely be called basketball between the bad teams, and then travesties of justice when one of the good teams plays one of the bad teams.

The Covenant School in Dallas is a good team. Dallas Academy is a bad team. In a recent game, the Covenant School beat Dallas Academy by a score of 100-0. Add to this the fact that Dallas Academy is a school for kids with learning disabilities. And the fact that they have only 20 girls in their school.

Did I forget to mention that the Covenant School maintained their full court press and three point shots into the fourth quarter until they scored their hundredth point? After the game the Covenant coach said, "It just happened". Apparently meaning, "It just so happened that we forgot to take off the full court press at half time when the score was 59-0. At least we slowed down in the second half and only scored 41 points."

Incidentally, the term asshole seems way dirtier when written as two words.

Gotta love these "Christians", right? That whole Golden Rule thing has really sunk in.

(And I don't have any word verification. That must either be because I'm a contributor on this blog or that Blogger is my bitch and wouldn't dare question me. I think you know what I think.)

Oh, and this is one of those times where it would be okay to hit a girl, right?

Okay, okay, I suppose the ass hole (that was for you, Chuck) coach is the real villain. Oh well, I hope his children fall down a well.
