OK, I'm just sitting here and waiting for some conservative feminist group to start their whining about this. Commence eye-rolling now.
I, myself, don't particularly have a problem with it because (A) I don't pay attention to the WNBA, (2) I don't find her particularly attractive (although the action pic may just be a bad shot of her), and (D) she posed in an Aussie magazine that I don't get anyway. So I've got no problem with it, but I can already hear the future objections of media members.
That actually makes the paper on page 32 here, so not such a big deal. As they say in the article, it's the 3rd book/magazine they've done with the Olympic team. The first one, before Atlanta, caused a bit of a stir. The pic in todays paper has (part?) of Jacksons shot in it and it definitely looks better than the action shot on si.
Now only if we can convince the hot blonde Brittany Jackson from UTenn to do the same, I will be a happy man
Sue Bird wouldn't be bad either
Ralph Wiley: Sorry, we had a chat room accident. It was like Freaky Friday. In fact, like Lindsay Lohan, I just inexplicably grew a pair of 36D's. --quote actually during an ESPN chat when Bill Simmons accidentally was put under Ralph Wiley's name
I really can't stand it. When writers try to make themselves sound important. By writing only in one or two-sentence paragraphs. It sucks. Also, I think Scoop is taking things a little out of proportion here.
