Ooo, brings back memories. A bit over a decade ago, when women’s pro basketball was but a glimmer, a “pro” league started up here in the Midwest [I’m in Iowa][not that it matters]. There were about half a dozen team, one of which was the Iowa Unicorns. I had nothing better to do at the time, being retired and [then] unpublished, so I volunteered to keep the scorebook at the home games. Which expanded to driving some of the team to away games AND keeping the scorebook. Which expanded on one occasion to coaching the team AND driving some of the team to an away game AND I didn’t have to keep the scorebook. Unfortunately the league folded after two years [wasn’t my fault; I kept a good scorebook]. But IMHO women play basketball better than men…it’s a good game they play.
