If I want to watch a bunch of horses run around, I expect mint juleps.

Game's in Manhattan? I could just take the subway there!

Bacon = double officially done

Free bacon? Why, that's like saying "free Mona Lisa" or "free retirement" or "free respect".  That phrase cheapens bacon and embiggens freedom. Some things you just don't give away.

I once went to a Mystics playoff game with my roommate wearing a crappy home made t-shirts that said "Layups are hot" and "Fundamentals are Sexy".  After the game a few of the players were signing autographs. They loved the shirts and laughed their asses off. We had lower level seats that cost us $5 each. The game itself was fun and the people who were around us were great. Overall it was a wonderful experience and it was easily the best basketball game that I have ever been too.


/Take this review of women's basketball with a grain of salt, when it comes to sports that I find interesting basketball is ranked under soccer.

Should've been done long ago.

It's K-State. That campus closely resembles a pig farm as it is. Leave well enough alone...

I wonder how Don Imus would have spun this.

no can dunk but good fundamentals

I'll go vegan before I sit through a women's college basketball game.

They could have a "shot for a shot" promotion where every time the home team took a shot everyone gets a free shot of bourbon, and I'd be like... you know, I don't really like drinking all that much.
 
2013-11-06 05:01:31 PM  
They might go through a whole package of bacon. Maybe even two.

When I read the headline all I could think about was "taking it to the hole."

So I thought about "bacon hole"

Which lead me to think about having sex with one of the K-State women's basketball players

That lead me to the conclusion that bestiality can't be  that bad if the animal is the same size or bigger than you

I'm not sure if I started drinking too early.

The local college farm isn't too far from my house.

This bacon fad thing has to be about done, doesn't it?

Fallout Boy: Pass.


Layup and the foul!

/Good fundamentals.

Would be funnier if they were giving away tuna.

I was going to say "what about the jewish and muslim kids?" but then I saw that it was Kansas.

If women's basketball goes the way of minor league baseball we could possibly have a free beer night. Combine the two and we have have 10 sweaty women jostling for position while I am drinking free beer and eating free bacon.... From far away those amazons look normal so.... cheap seats = severe okness?

/that took a long time to get to the point.
//there wasn't a point

I, too, hate watching athletic young women play a great sport.

/but c'mon, guys, should've been free roast beef sandwiches
//kinda over the whole bacon thing

That is well-done with the shirts, and I'm glad to hear they had a sense of humor about them.

I think I'd more readily attend a WNBA game than an NBA game.

And by saying that, there is no way in hell I'd ever go to an NBA game.

BTW, I've been to NBA games, NCAA men's and women's games.

The women's games are more fun to go to if you have a family. Mainly because it's super cheap (they'd let us in free most of the time, but it was supposed to be like 2 bucks for employees), you can sit anywhere you'd like, the people aren't as fast so it's much easier to see plays develop if you're not a basketball expert (and most of the people in these threads could really use that), and the people that attend the games are nicer.

/also it's fun because the place is quiet so you can hear the coaches yelling at their players while they're on the floor and laugh at how worked up they are
//hoping the daughter grows up to get a basketball scholarship - don't care if she wants to go pro, but it'd be awesome to get college paid for and I wouldn't mind going to basketball games. PLEASE DON'T END UP LIKING SOCCER

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

"We've done free pizza before, but every college kid has access to pizza. It's a little harder to get bacon."

Bow down to this rarest of delicacies!

is this about the bacon or the players?

There'll be a lot of that there, too...
