Vaya Con Dios, Houston Comets

This is for the 2 of you that might care: The WNBA has announced that the Houston Comets, the franchise that won the league’s first 4 titles, has folded. The team went through an ownership change, going from Les Alexander, the billionaire owner of the Houston Rockets, to Hilton Koch, the mattress king of Houston. I want to dispel the rumors before they start: There were no mattresses in the locker rooms for the women to, well, do their thing…that we know of.

The franchise was successful in Houston for years, before the newness wore out. Legendary on Houston sports radio are the stories of hatred and rivalry between the team’s early stars of Cynthia Cooper, Tina Thompon, and Sheryl Swoopes. Immediately I think of the tale of a photo shoot where they all needed their own dressing room, lighting, makeup artists, and were not on time. Desperate Housewives these 3 were not. At least Eva Longoria, though extremely overexposed in the media, is attractive.  Speaking of mattresses, attraction, and divas, there was a beautiful love story in all of this: Swoopes came out of the closet a couple of years ago and revealed that her partner was Alisa Scott, former assistant coach of the Comets. Brokeback Comet indeed. Here the two look so happy…and mullet free:

All in all, I wish they would end the WNBA quicker than you can say “Cheddar Burress”. The league would last 1 day at the most if David Stern pulled NBA backing from it. With the economy officially now in a recession, what better way to save money than folding the league??? Just make Isiah Thomas the president of the WNBA, he can fold a league like no one’s business. That is if he doesn’t sexually harass any of the employees or OD on Lunesta. It is just bad basketball with no excitement.

Well, the Comets are no more at least. Cheer up though, in honor of the Comets being “Gonged”, here is Gene Gene the Dancing Machine!!!!!!!

Need more cheering up??? This is the old Jam Cam…

    Ahh, the good ol’ 1970’s and the Gong Show where cocaine was not only readily available for the host and judges, the use of it was mandatory.
