5. Chesty chess
Cleavage has been put in checkmate. The European Chess Union
recently implemented a rule for women and their barely there tops at the
European Women's Championship. No more than two buttons can be undone, and
skirts cannot be more that 3.9 inches above the knees.
4. Pearly (fake)
In last week's "Off Base" I mentioned there were bound to be
unforgettable March Madness moments. I was referring to the grit-your-teeth intense play on
the court. Didn't think the talk of the
tournament would be about the "March Madness Dentures Guy."
3. Superstar airballs
Blake Griffin jumps over cars and really, really tall people.
Blake Griffin is arguably the best athlete in the NBA. Blake Griffin didn't even
hit the rim on back-to-back free throws. Oh, the humanity.
2. Thoughts and prayers
At times we're reminded that sports is not life and death. A
23-year-old professional footballer suddenly collapsed mid-match last Saturday.
Fabrice Muamba was taken to the
hospital and the latest update is that he's in critical condition.
1. Superfan swipes cell
Ashley Judd is an
accomplished actress and Kentucky Wildcats' basketball fanatic. With her
celebrity status, she's able to gain post-game access to the locker room.
Usually her visits involve high-fives and smiles. This visit was involved thievery
of 6'9" sophomore Terrence Jone's cell phone. Judd accidentally picked up the
player's phone and left town. She felt so bad about it she immediately returned
it along with a handwritten note.
