Sheryl Swoopes
Posted by Christine Hurt

Who is your all-time favorite basketball player?  Mine is Sheryl Swoopes.  I went to college at Texas Tech University, in my hometown.  About the same time, so did Sheryl (hometown -- Brownfield, TX), and she swept ("swooped"?) the nation on the basketball court.  Now, of course, she is the star of the WNBA.  Today, she is quoted in ESPN magazine as stating that she is a lesbian.  (Story here.)  Swoopes says that she knows this announcement may affect her ability to act as a role model.  Maybe it will just broaden her reach.

I can't imagine what people are talking about in Lubbock today.
