The WNBA needs to bring the hammer down on stuff like this. They can't allow a player to target the league's biggest star:

Indiana looked like a bad team last night. Probably why they had #1 pick. Clark had one brilliant rebound to a long fast break pass from what I saw. I didn't see the body check live, but the replay looked like a hit Brad Marchand would have been proud of.

So I see there is a new sheriff on the cricket pitch, or whatever it is they call it...

Right up there with England 1950 (soccer)...And, yes, it is a cricket pitch

My personal favorite cricket story features the first great of English Cricket - W.G.Grace. Playing in a County game, he let a ball go by which just grazed the top of the Wicket and took one of the bails off. Grace stood his ground, looked down the pitch and said 'windy day today, Umpire...' The Umpire replied - 'indeed it is, Dr Grace - mind it doesn't blow your cap off on the way back to the Pavilion...' :hysterical:

Capone sold out tonight for Caitlin Clark. Clark put up 30 in an 85-83 win for Indy.

I wonder what 70 veggie hot dogs does to the alimentary canal?  Probably like eating a bale of hay.

Wheat gluten, oil, spices. Probably sits a lot like pork or beef.

If you fancy combining a trip to Vegas with something interesting...(and it is 'the real deal', not an exhibition).

Thought he might make it to the end of the season, but this Sunday's game (against Brisbane) will be Adam Simpson's last as West Coast head coach - he leaves by 'mutual consent'...
