Busiest day ever, thanks to La Jefita
19 December 2011
A record number of people came to this blog yesterday. Was it to find my review of La Princesse de Montpensier? To enjoy my appreciation for women with real noses? With the hope that I might have some kind of silly seasonal comments on holiday shoppers (of whom I am very afraid)?
Nope! It was to read my post from last March on Baylor basketball goddess Brittney Griner, and most of them found Feminéma using a variant of the search, is Brittney Griner a man? Glad to have set y’all straight, so to speak!
And why yesterday? Because Griner handed some UConn ass right back to those previously undefeated No. 2s. She had 25 points, 9 rebounds and 9 blocks in a game that saw Baylor overcoming being down by 11 points during the last 13 minutes of the game.
Now, Griner has amazing games all the time, and posts some phenomenal stats on a regular basis, but you don’t often see a stunning game like this against the No. 2 team in the country, one of the most winningest teams in women’s basketball history. It was Griner’s game, and it was a thing of beauty.
Thus, I pronounce Griner to be La Jefita — the Boss of Baylor Basketball, who’s still only a junior!
Isn’t it interesting that so many would watch this amazing woman and think to themselves, “This woman is blowing so many of my brain cells with her superiority and goddessness that I must do a web search in which I ask, is she secretly a man?”
Whatever. Let’s watch this nifty Baylor video of her from way back in her freshman year. Maybe you’ll start thinking about forming a local goddess cult around her. The Baylor Bears will be back on TV for your viewing pleasure for their Jan. 15 game against the University of Texas (sorry, Longhorns, you haven’t got a chance).
Meanwhile, I’m having fantasies about what I’d be eating if I’d been in Waco for last night’s game: tamales. Oh, December in Texas is a very good time indeed.
