The Women's Final Four. Seriously, does anyone care? I know we're all supposed to and everyone kinda pretends that they respect women's basketball, but we don't. And since it's in Cleveland this year, I'm really supposed to care.
It's taking up space on the local news and in the paper, see? Bill Livingston is writing about it, it's important!
I'm sure all the players aren't exactly thrilled. They have to come to Cleveland. The men are playing Atlanta (nice weather, strip clubs etc). Not really fair, is it.
But we don't care. And I'm actually a little embarrassed. The logo is awful. I hate how all national logos for Cleveland events like this (all-star games and the like) all incorporate a guitar due to the Rock Hall (Cleveland Rocks!).
Look, I love the Rock Hall. I love music. But if anyone thinks Cleveland is this great rock and roll town, they are mistaken. Hell, the Rock Hall doesn't even respect us; the induction ceremony? You know, where all the bands play and it's the one time all year that people think about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Well, it's held in New York, not Cleveland. Fantastic.
I guess that's my only solace; the teams can't particularly care to be here. And I don't particularly care that they are here.
