Duuuhhh....

I hope she knows about Fark so she can read this headline.

Nice one subby.
 
2007-04-19 01:01:38 PM  
I'm stunned.

Nothing like turning 15 seconds of radio foolishness into a giant wad of cash.

Exploitation, it's our way.

In reality, C. Vivian Stringer has had an amazing (and somewhat tragic) life. She's a legend here in Iowa, and we can only hope the book is a bio, and not just a re-hashing of the Imus crap.

The woman could barely string together a sentence for the cameras.

She'll probably use a ghostwriter, but then again, she may consider that racist.

Amen to that. Vivian Stringer is a great coach and an she's the ONLY coach to lead three teams from four different schools to a final four.

It's too bad the rest of the nation only pays attention to her laurels when called out by an undead ghoul-clown in a ten-gallon hat.

Nobody gives a shiat about women's college basketball, period. She's no exception.

who would buy and read this crap anyway?

Nappy headed ho's...

Can't be said enough.

Okay, three teams from four different schools? Is that 3*4=12 Final Fours?

Well, yeah. A writer wearing a white sheet would be pretty racist.
 
2007-04-19 02:09:36 PM  
Okay tough guy. But we're still on for the Liberty game right? It's your turn to get the nachos.
 
2007-04-19 02:09:43 PM  
Is that horse dead yet, smitty?

Better hit it again to make sure.

/Imus is still fired

Score another victory for the Justice Brothers
 
2007-04-19 02:11:11 PM  
Is it just me, or is she trying to get the spotlight back on her and her team because VA Tech and Cho took away all the media attention
Esp since Imus is fired
 
2007-04-19 02:11:11 PM  
I bet she's actually gonna write it too.

While fundamentally I agree with you I must reopen the debate. It can't be "ho's"- it's not possessive. It must be 'hos (contraction of whore).

Hopefully she recruited a violent drug using lesbian to rutgers after being kicked out of two other colleges who subsequently kidnapped and tortured another female student. It illustrates what a GREAT personshe is, how she never compromises her principles and how she cares about women deeply.

Sharpton is going to demand a piece of the action. Just watch.

NikolaiFarkoff: The woman could barely string together a sentence for the cameras.

We must have seen different interviews. I saw a serious, devoted, intelligent and articulate interviewee and coach.
 
2007-04-19 02:13:12 PM  
Are you farking kidding me?

Step 1: Have someone make fun of someone you coach for being ugly.
Step 2: Cry about it for days on live television.
Step 3: Write book about how this moment changed your life and how no one gave a crap about you before.
Step 4: Profit?
 
2007-04-19 02:13:22 PM  
Is it published by Amazon?
 
2007-04-19 02:13:28 PM  
She's had a story worth reading for a long time, it's just that nobody would have known who she was before Imus.

So she had better pony up some dough for the free advertising
 
2007-04-19 02:14:02 PM  
STYMIE! Long time no see!
 
2007-04-19 02:14:43 PM  
Al Sharpton has taught her well.
 
2007-04-19 02:15:39 PM  
Ah, America. Where we make the government honor freedom of speech, so none of the rest of us have to. Because we don't really believe in it.

Now if slavery never happened and this woman was living in Africa with a bone through her nose, she'd be blissfully unaware of the evils of mildly racist comments made over the radio. Because she wouldn't know what a radio was.
 
2007-04-19 02:17:48 PM  
I like all the talk about "now we can start the healing process..."

It was a friggin' insult, not a bullet. What healing process is needed?
 
2007-04-19 02:17:48 PM  
"She's a pioneer, a legend, an icon and a role model."

Ehh, let's not get too ahead of ourselves here, publishing people. Davy Crockett, most characters played by Clint Eastwood and Paul Bunyan were all of these things. This chick just coaches semi-literate girls that are recruited to a college for the purpose of winning basketball games in the school's name and then shuffled off with little afterthought when they graduate or a better crop comes in. Perhaps there's nobility in some of what she does and she had to work hard to get where she is, but I think we'll all still be going to work on her birthday 10 years from now.
 
2007-04-19 02:18:50 PM  
Unfortunately, this "coach" allowed her team to be whored out by Sharpton and Jackson, so their accomplishments will be forever reduced to those "nappy headed 'hos".
 
2007-04-19 02:19:00 PM  
Will still come in 2nd on the bestseller list behind...

Subtitle: Jackson tastes better than Sharpton but neither taste as good as the team.

I take this advice on the proper use of 'ho as gospel from a guy who goes by the name, Hot Carl To Go. I'm on no place to question your credentials, good sir...'hos it is.

2007-04-19 02:23:01 PM  
people need to stop with the apologies for others' opinions. i am offended at the fact that everyone who gets offended demands a damn apology.. take your licks, and come back swinging. or just stfu and get over it.

/if imus had not apologized, at least he'd still have some dignity.
 
2007-04-19 02:25:24 PM  
O yes, fireclown, hither I am!

Wonder if the hot chick from Rutgers U's women's basketball team is gonna pose all nekkid...O what a happy day that would be.

/Perhaps the nappy-headed hoes will make it to "Black Tail"...

mic87108 Please some call me a nappy headed...um wait I'm white. Please someone call me um DAMNIT! I can't be called anything that will offend the general public!

"Honkey" doesn't offend the general public?

Maybe not as much as the N word (even FARK won't let me post that word) but it gets people going a little.

/answered my own question
//also a honkey
 
2007-04-19 02:26:14 PM  
What took so long?
Will she donate some of the proceeds to the IMUS charity to help kids or just buy a big house and a blinged out Escalade?
 
2007-04-19 02:26:29 PM  
There's enough material here for a book? This whole story is barely a headline.

2007-04-19 02:27:27 PM  
Whatever. Let her have her book deal....handfuls will buy it.

You have to admire her sense of media opportunism, though. Her speech at the RU press conference was masterful, in a I-realize-Im-on-the-national-stage-and-this-is-my-15-minutes kind of way.
 
2007-04-19 02:28:39 PM  
safeinsane: I just farted. Give me a book deal.

Your fart has gravely offended me. The book deal is mine!

/Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!

"Wonder if the hot chick from Rutgers U's women's basketball team is gonna pose all nekkid[.]"

More likely, she'll show up in some girl-on-girl pics/movies on the intarwebs ...

"Although the Imus incident is obviously going to be the main selling point for the book, it should be noted that Stringer's life story was interesting even before Imus insulted her team. She has 777 coaching wins, she is the only women's coach to have taken three teams to the Final Four, she has a daughter who was paralyzed by spinal meningitis, she has a son who was kicked off the North Carolina State football team for his role in a fight that led to someone being shot and killed."

Sounds like the kind of "biography" I can get off of the evening news. Extraordinary she is not.
 
2007-04-19 02:29:46 PM  
so now a white guy can't talk like a nappy-headed homie, huh?

an Shamika gonna make some bucks 'cause of it...

Al and Jessie will probably want royalties.
