There’s criticism (“You suck”) and then there’s criticism that hits below the belt because it gets specific about someone’s race, gender, or sexuality (“You suck because you’re fag”). The latter is what happened this weekend to NASCAR driver Amber Cope, whose not-good driving interfered with a more experienced driver. As the car blog Jalopnik puts it, Amber Cope and her twin sister Angela Cope “have been trying to work their way into racing with mostly weak results.” But that doesn’t mean the appropriate way to criticize either one of them for a job poorly done is to use the word “c**t.” Keep reading »

Today in Things That Aren’t Cute: these uniforms Ralph Lauren designed for the U.S. Olympic Team. Blazers, berets, knee-length skirts — the company’s statement says the outfits aim to “embody the spirit of American athleticism and sportsmanship,” but I think they’re more “Phillips Exeter Academy, sailing, affected accents from a place that doesn’t exist, that kid you know named John Charles Johnson III, your mom’s Valium in the mirrored bathroom cabinet, and things that do not and will never genuinely define America as a whole unless, of course, you happen to be asking Ralph Lauren.” I grew up in Connecticut. I know this shit.

Candice Sortino in trouble for pinching butts!

Dear Candice Sortino,

I know you are facing criminal charges for the recent stunt you pulled at the College Baseball World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. When asked why you made a mad dash out on to the field to pinch two baseball players’ butts you responded “Because there were so many people watching and it’s against the rules and you get tackled too.”  You rebellious little minx. I know you think that you got “caught up in the moment” and made a mistake, but I, for one disagree.

French Tennis Player Says Men Deserve To Be Paid More Than Women

Today's Lady News photo
  • French tennis player Gilles Simon recently said male players should be paid more than females at Grand Slam tennis events. When there was pushback against his remarks, he only dug the hole deeper, saying, “My point was that I have the feeling that men’s tennis is actually more interesting than women’s tennis. As in any business or anything, you just have to be paid just about that. It’s not because we play five sets and they are playing three.” Not surprisingly, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova both vehemently disagree. What do you think about his remarks? (I’m not going to pretend to know much about professional tennis here.) [ESPN, Sports Illustrated] Keep reading »

U.S. Olympic Women’s 100 Meter Sprint Team May Be Determined By Coin Toss

After months of training and a strenuous 100k sprint, all that stands between either Allyson Felix or Jeneba Tarmoh and the United States Olympic sprint team may be a mere coin toss.

During qualifying trials for the upcoming London Olympics, the two runners finished simultaneously, crossing the finish line at 11.068 seconds in third place, a time which would net one of them a place on the US team. In fact, they finished so close together that not even the finish-line cameras, which can capture motion at up to 3,000 frames per second, could help accurately determine the winner. Read more…
