LSU's women's basketball team sparked outrage prior to their game against Iowa on Monday night after leaving the court before the American national anthem was played. The LSU Tigers were beaten 94-87 by the Iowa Hawkeyes in Albany, where the latter's star player Caitlin Clark put on a 41-point masterclass to help her team advance to the Final Four of this year's NCAA tournament. Yet earlier in the evening, footage on social media appeared to show that LSU players skipped the national anthem before it played out at Times Union Center. Iowa stars, meanwhile, stood hand-in-hand while taking in the Star-Spangled Banner

An LA Times writer calls them "dirty debutantes" and it's deemed a racist remark (10 of 12 on the team are black). The coach (who has a serious ego problem) goes nuts, the writer offers a pukening apology, and the team disappears for the National Anthem that evening - but it wasn't intentional. Caitlin Clark has turned women's basketball upside down this year and no one knows how to handle it. A white-girl record setter? That's racist, too, ya know.

Caitlin Clark’s court awareness is very advanced. When the defense closed in, she made beautiful assists through narrow passing lanes. Caitlin Clark is on a different level.

I saw that game at the house of a friend of mine yesterday. Caitlin Clark showcase that she is more than a scoring machine but a great passer and floor leader. LSU was good but this time they couldn't contain Clark and she was able to beat the double teams with great help. The whole leaving the court before the National Anthem was played alone made me glad that they lost. Congratulations to the Hawkeyes and best of luck going forward.

“Even if any of these players make it to the WNBA, will anyone notice or even care.” Poster 19, they might notice. Caitlin Clark has sold out every arena she played in this season. Over the next few years, for every dollar WNBA players receive in salary, they are going to owe at least 25 cents to Caitlin Clark.

Not a B-Ball fan, never have been. Also women’s sports is about as much fun to watch as men’s beauty contests. That said, looking at this young lady from Iowa, she may have found something everyone else has missed. Perhaps Basketball could be transformed by a cerebral approach to the game. Throw away the no gain, no brain thug culture and go with intelligence and grace.

A very prescient post, #22, especially if you have not been watching basketball over the last several decades. The thug ball, as I've called it for at least three decades is exactly what turned me away from the game. The NBA was the first to go down the tubes with the thuggish play in the mid to late 80s, and refs not calling near as many fouls because of it. They didn't have enough players to finish a game if they called all the fouls. Then college basketball started circling the drain a decade or so ago. Anyone notice the increase in players wearing head gear for protection? It reminds me of a Rodney Dangerfield quip, "I went to a boxing match the other evening, and a hockey game broke out!" I never really was a fan of women's basketball, but the same behavior as above is taking hold there too. IMO, disrespecting the National Anthem is also part of it.

From what I have read they routinely leave the floor before a game. As much as I disagree it does not seem to be what it is being blown up to be. My question would be, the previous games were they on the floor when the National Anthem was played? On a side note, I'm delighted that odious angel got her butt kicked.

Hundreds of federal, state and local Mexican law enforcement have arrived on the border near El Paso, Texas to prevent a migrant caravan with an estimated 2,000 people from reaching the US. Mexican officials paraded federal immigration agents and other law enforcement officers in front of cameras this week in Juarez, the Mexican city just south of El Paso. The show of force is part of an on-going agreement between President Joe Biden and Mexico's president for Mexico to do its part in securing the border and has been used in January as well.

Cal-Maine Foods, Inc., recognized as the country’s largest producer of fresh eggs, announced on Tuesday that it has temporarily suspended operations at one of its major facilities located in Parmer County, Texas. This drastic measure comes in the wake of a detected outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). The outbreak has led to the culling of approximately 1.6 million laying hens and 337,000 pullets. This action represents about 3.6% of Cal-Maine Foods’ total flock as of early March 2024, marking a significant loss for the company and the egg industry as a whole.

Biden said during a meeting with Muslim community leaders at the White House on Tuesday that the first lady is now giving him that same pressure, sharing with attendees that she had told him to “stop it,” according to NYT.

Greek Independence Day was the occasion on Thursday, with Joe Biden hosting a reception in the East Room.

Right on cue, Biden did his faux Forrest Gump routine where he inserts himself into every aspect of every culture. It's fitting that just two days before this speech, the president repeated a tall tale about being raised by the Puerto Rican community.

It’s just people started to worry about a “population explosion.” Thanks to antibiotics, vaccines, mosquito eradication and better farming, people weren’t dying off as they had been.

But Americans on social media gave the inept and elitist Buttigieg a brutal reality check afterward. Buttigieg was a guest on “America’s Newsroom” with John Roberts and Sandra Smith when he embarrassed himself. Roberts opened by telling Buttigieg about the collapsing Tesla sales and auto companies laying off large chunks of their workforces at electric plants. He then pivoted to asking why the Biden regime continued to try to shove EVs down everyone’s throats.

Chef José Andrés, founder of the World Central Kitchen (WCK), accused Israel of targeting his aid staffers “systemically, car by car” when seven of them were killed in an airstrike Monday delivering desperately needed food to hungry Gazans. The Israeli military, meanwhile, said Wednesday that an investigation found that its forces misidentified the aid workers’ vehicles as hostile amid international criticism for the deadly bombing and Israel’s ongoing six-month siege of the enclave. The three WCK vehicles, which included two armored cars and a third unarmored one, were targeted in multiple strikes, killing workers from Australia, Canada, Poland, the UK and the US as well as their Palestinian driver.

Two of Iran's most senior military commanders were killed – Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' (IRGC) elite Quds Force, and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, a deputy commander in the Quds Force. Israel has not commented on the strike but is widely believed to be responsible having carried out numerous strikes similar to this one in the region. But Iran has warned that the US must also be held accountable despite the fact Washington has said it played no role in the attack.
