In much more pleasantly frivolous news

MSU women's basketball coach Joanne P. McCallie, less than a month after silencing rumors that she was considering the vacant coaching position at the University of Florida by singing a 5-year, $2.5 million contract with MSU, will announce tomorrow morning that she will become the new head coach of Duke's women's basketball team.

You know, that sucks. I mean, good for her, but it's hard not to feel betrayed, even if that's really, upon reflection, an entirely irrational reaction. She doesn't owe me anything, and who am I to keep her from her dream job?

Still, I hope we cream Duke the next time we play them. I mean really cream.

you know, i was willing to bite my tongue (i.e. not be such a judgmental jerk for a minute) until she canceled her "so long and thanks for all the fish" press conference. i often balk at the statement from these often high-paid folks (like mike tyson!) saying they need to "do it for my family's future"--at 500 grand for ONE YEAR, that more FUTURE than 90 percent of this country gets.
