Girl Can Ball

I don't care what you say.  Baylor's Brittney Griner can flat out ball.  The 6'8" junior has had to endure a lot.  Just Google her name -- you'll see what I mean.  People say she's a man.  They say she's a lesbian.  Let me go on the record and say that this makes me so angry!  She didn't choose to be 6'8".  She didn't choose her body.  The girl probably can't even find clothes that fit her.  She defies traditional beauty and what it means to be feminine.  She has taken this criticism (and maybe even hate) with grace and a quiet confidence.  The girl has sick post moves.  It takes a triple team to stop her -- and even that doesn't work most of the time.  She's a game changer whether she's scoring points or not.  Just her presence on the court affects the opposing team's game plan.
And tonight, she lived up to all the media hype.  26 points.  13 rebounds.  And finally a national championship for the Baylor Lady Bears.  Their motto all season was "Unfinished Business."  It's finished now, Brittney. First team in NCAA history to go 40-0.  Keep dunking like a girl!
