Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

From the Sparks' Kath Goodman: Grading on a curve
When I was in law school, I always benefited from the fact that our exams were graded on a curve — it didn’t matter what you knew, as long as you knew more than the other people sitting in the room with you. It is the same thing with trying to make the post-season in the WNBA. You don’t have to be good — you just have to be better than the teams in your conference. Notwithstanding the fact that I live and die by the belief that, in the 2009 Sparks, Penny Toler has put together the greatest team of individual talent ever assembled on a women’s pro basketball team (Rebkell, begin your discussion now), all I want right now is for us to have the fourth best record in the West so we can advance to the playoffs.
