How Is That ‘Sports History’???

Brittney Griner has announced her recent engagement to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson. That’s great… but what part of the game classifies who an athlete marries — let alone, who they may choose to smash — as “making sports history”???? I’m saying tho.. wouldn’t “making sports history” be defined as something related to the sport?

To the critics who may challenge the TRUTH I’m dropping [likely to come to the table with a weak argument that’s based on the “historic” racial integration of Black athletes, like Jackie Robinson, into White-owned sports teams] — Consider the Cuban/Sterling-state-of-mind’ infested National Basketball Association.. WITHOUT Black basketball players. Imagine an NFL lacking the negro muscle needed to run the League’s FIELDS. Better yet… How do you think Ameriakkka would hold up on the world Olympic stage WITHOUT the Black athlete representing this COLOR-DIVIDED country?

Now let’s consider the other side… the gender-based side, based on the recent coming-out of certain pro-sports figures. If the Brooklyn Nets were to remove Jason Collins from the roster, would the team go bust? What about Michael Sam? Would the NFL be left azz out with him… based on SPORTS, NOT Gender-Trending… let’s be real. Ha! Case closed!

Anyway.. I’m done ranting… FOR NOW.

Here is what’s out there:

“Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson have been Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) opponents since Griner entered the league by becoming the first overall pick of the 2013 WNBA Draft. But now Griner and Johnson have something else in common besides being fellow WNBA All-Stars — they’re engaged to be married.

The couple made sports history when Griner proposed to Johnson late last week. Depending on how you look at it, it’s either a story that should have gotten more attention for its progressiveness or was appropriately just a blip on the mainstream media radar as same-sex relationships become more and more mainstream.

But either way, it’s a heartwarming tale of love and sports.

Griner posted this photo of herself — on bended knee with ring in hand — in front of Johnson to her Instagram account on Friday night. Its caption: “Last Night was a Night to Remember I became the happiest person on this earth! (almost pass out but when that one word came out I came back to life) Me and my baby @missvol25 are in it for Life!”

  1. Its said how lame the WNBA is. Brittney was the first woman to dunk and it got little press and they also suspended her a game! Why can the NBA dunk and not the WNBA? Girls dont fake cramps when the games in the line!

    • They suspended her for dunking? Wow, I didn’t know the WNBA wasn’t allowed to dunk. If so, bad decision on the league’s part. In order to draw any kind of fan base and if they want to continue to have a league they have to be allowed to step up their game whenever possible. Or else no one will take the league seriously and no one will pay for tickets to come to a live game and see them play. They need to let them wild out, especially when the NBA sets such a high bar when it comes to skill level.

      • She didnt get suspended for dunking nor was she the first to dunk in a game…lisa leslie, candace parker, margo dydek (R.I.P.). And her girlfriend up there glory is a better duker than Brit. There are quite a few that can dunk but just dont…delle don, anika henry, angel mccoughty, sancho little…. to name a few. Just wanted to clear that up, Hope that helps

        • They didnt dunk in games, practices yes. It was always a thing that WNBA can’t dunk because they are women, which is so false! I def dont remember Lisa dunking in a game. And I believe Brittney did get in trouble for dunking, thats why she hasnt done it again. Stupid stuipd rules!

        • Did a little research, yes, you can dunk in the WNBA and only two players have dunked in the WNBA so far: Candace Parker and Lisa Leslie. Leslie in a 2002 regular season game. And Parker in two 2008 regular season games. Leslie also dunked in the 2005 All-Star Game. And Michelle Snow dunked in the 2006 All-Star Game. At least that’s what my research came up with. lol

  2. The milliniem version of Love and Basketball. It is an older movie that needs a remake like Friday and Players Club.

  3. Okay Brittany and Glory, you’re freaks and you ant to “pretend” to be a viable couple.

    We got it.

    Now, back to ISIS, Ferguson, the Pacific Ocean dying from Fukishima radiation, the wanton bombng of Iraq, the dollar collapse, etc.

    • You would be surprised who love tall, athletic, feminine women…..im not using them for the example. But a lot of these women look great off the court and in street clothes. I am 6 feet and love my heels, never had a problem attracting men. Hope this helps

  4. more power to Britney and Gloria.

    know a white trash hooker who left her black dude for a white lesbian stud.

    girl power indeed this is what the spice girls meant when they was promoting the lesbian agenda.
