The women are presented as evidence of inclusion and diversity when too often their presence is designed for publicity and tokenism. Then there are those hired and paraded — and often dressed — to attract the “young male demographic” as “hot babes” when the Internet now serves to satisfy prurient interests on demand.
How can a defense this good spend January at home? It hasn’t allowed a touchdown in three games.
That Newton eventually hands the ball to a kid in the stands excuses nothing. It’s more evidence that he knows kids are watching — and may choose to play like Cam!
Though Gonzaga and the University of Washington are both in Washington, a four-hour ride between them, the schools’ basketball teams made an 8,000-mile round trip to play each other on Thanksgiving eve at the Atlantis resort and casino in The Bahamas.
But not all the student-athletes were unable to be home for Thanksgiving. Given that six were recruited from outside the U.S., including Poland and Senega, it is unlikely those at their homes celebrate our Thanksgiving.
