Déjà vu: She Shoots, She Scores!
2012: The coach of the multiple-championship winning UConn women’s basketball team suggests the game be modified to make it easier for players to make baskets in an attempt to draw fans to the sport.
1892: Basketball, newly invented, proves an effective tool for the moral and physical education of women at Smith College.

I am convalescing today and therefore easily irritated so I’m sure you’ll understand why my first reaction to this is ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME FOR THE LOVE OF PETE
My second reaction is to be really curious about Pat Summitt’s first reaction, which I hope is sort of like mine.
