Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

From Nicole Jacobsen, Editor in Chief at the SMU Daily Campus: Not just an average pick-up basketball game
In what I can only think to call a game of complete idiocy, ten men from The Ticket squared off against nine select members of the Lake Highlands women's basketball team last night in Moody Coliseum. Whether it was a bunch of testosterone-inflated egos, a silly bet made over one too many beers or just men wanting to prove they are more dominant in sports is beyond me, but whatever the reason, the game was a sorry excuse to show off a lack of athletic ability on behalf of the men.
And from Chris Dell, Sports Editor at SMU: Nice try, radio guys
Talk is cheap.

That's why the hosts at Dallas' sports talk radio station The Ticket deserve some credit for challenging a group of girls from the Lake Highlands High School girls basketball team to a friendly game Wednesday in front of about 4,000 curious fans at Moody Coliseum.

However, Team Ticket's performance validated what many people knew already: Middle-age men don't belong on the same court as teenagers, not even teenage girls.
