  1. Great links today!

    I've read a bunch of Granderson's columns and I can't remember ever agreeing with one, so today is a first.

    Had no idea about Sugar Roger's background. Amazing story. Gonna be following her now.

    Parker continues to be the W's most positive role model. Impressive. I hope the Sparks come together this year. She needs to get that championship.

    Didn't the acting San Diego State WBB coach quit and go to work as an assistant for Cooper-Dyke at USC? If so are you going to get a chance to sit down with her to get the straight story on Burns leaving? Everyone wants to know what happened there.

  2. Thanks for the feedback, and thanks for reading.

    I agree about Candace.

    I know what happened at SDSU, and I doubt if Coach Woods will speak about it. I am, however, going to interview Cynthia Cooper-Dyke and cover their team next year, which should be really fun.

  3. So the Burns story must be pretty ugly if no one is willing to talk about it even now. Is it a secret or just that bad?
