Either way, you don’t want to watch the crippled Bears vs Lions fight end … so let’s watch Queen Ralph and the girls take on the Arizona Wildcats in our first game of the Paradise Jam tournament in the Virgin Islands. American.
Yes, we are all jealous of them both for where they are and for not having to talk to that uncle who really loves crypto this Thanksgiving weekend.
The Queen Ralph era started out as a struggle (the Lady Dores are currently 3-2 in the “haven’t played anyone yet” part of the calendar, with wins over Gardner-Webb, Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State, and losses against Gardner-Webb, Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State, Little Rock and Empty SU), just like Clark Lea, his predecessor left the list reduced to studs. Also, like Clark Lea, Queen Ralph has given us reason to believe that we will eventually come out of the depths, as both new coaches seem smart, driven, and neither of us is smoking our asses.
While the Derek Mason and Stephanie White eras were a fool-told story full of sound and fury that means nothing, both are thankfully over. On this day of thanksgiving, that is enough.
Of course, today is unlikely to go our way, as the Lady Wildcats are 4-0 with a win over No.6 Louisville. This one was 61-59; the other three were explosions of biblical proportions.
Still, watch Lady Dores this Thanksgiving with Gold anchor, eat the pie and be thankful that the pie exists.
