Last night the unthinkable happened.
The women’s UCONN basketball team finally lost a game, snapping a 111-game program win streak. Their last loss was November 17, 2014. The team that beat them? MISSISSIPPI STATE. Ask Dak Prescott if he’s pumped…
Here’s a list of some other notable things that have happened since that loss:
- January 18, 2015 – “Deflategate” occurs during a 45-7 Patriots over Colts AFC Championship game;
- April 18, 2015 – Taylor drives 14 hours to Illinois to pickup his dog, Reagan;
- May 2015 – Producer Tim graduates Le Moyne College;
- June 16, 2015 – Trump announced he would run for President and everyone thought it was a publicity stunt (basically);
- Michael Phelps won four more gold medals and Ryan Lochte became a hilariously known figure for his incident in a Rio gas station;
- November 2, 2016 – The Cubs broke their World Series drought.
Everything else was basically not worth noting.
So what does this mean in the grand scheme of Women’s College Basketball… Is Mississippi State the “new kids on the block“? Will people start caring about the sport now that there’s parity again?
The answer to both those questions is: probably not. Look, it’s pretty awesome that someone beat UCONN, and I’m happy for Mississippi St (not as happy as Dak Prescott, but still). It was a wild David vs Goliath story.
But just like the Warriors last year, even though you are the best team, you still actually have to play the games and prove it to earn a title.
Great example that this tournament makes EVERY game exciting… Any Given Sunday, or I guess Friday here. You know what I’m saying.
That Wasn’t Even the Championship LOLZ,
