Big news out of the Women’s National Basketball Association (just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?) on Tuesday night, as the ladies finally figured out that the best way to garner attention for the tree-falling-in-the-woods-like league is to use its collective feminine features to its fullest advantage.
