Let's talk about the ladies of Notre Dame. 'Round these parts, it's usually football, men's hoops, hockey, and men's lacrosse (plus a bunch of others) that we tend to focus on. So it's about time that we let the women's basketball team have the (extremely well-deserved) TSW stage this week. For cryin' out loud, they're 26-1 (14-0 ACC) this year and show no signs of slowing down. Yet, perhaps we've grown so accustomed to their success over the past 15 years that we've become a bit callous; after all, how many college hoops fans get to say, "Oh look, another ho-hum Final Four appearance"?? If I seem a bit carried away about this, it's because I, too, have been guilty of taking our ladies' incredible hoopyball skillz for granted. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
So to honor them, this week's entry features NDWBB's fearless leader and the only head coach on campus (that I know of) who can pull off the skirts-and-heels outfit. [Ed. note: So help me, FDM, if people start submitting photoshops of our head coaches in heels and pink skirts...] The header photo was taken during the ladies' big 73-66 win at #12 Florida State. Give us your best captions and photoshops in the comment section!
Last Week's Winners
In last week's Valentine's Day TSW, we had two entries for people to choose from. The first one, showing Pat Connaughton yukking it up on the phone, had a couple submissions--including (we believe) the first-ever winning TSW appearance by Mihalko35!
--Apparently, Pat knows what trendy threads to wear:
And in our BONUS TSW entry (featuring DJ and Bishop Kevin Rhoades), KG and GoldenGoalie teamed up for these episcopal knee-slappers:
Thanks to everyone who participated!
WHOA. This was probably one of the most competitive polls in TSW history...albeit kind of a depressing one, in some regard.
GO IRISH, BEAT (BU) TERRIERS!!
