WNBA

Washington Times reports that the current labor impasse might mean the end of the WNBA as early as tomorrow. How stupid can the players be, threatening to strike against a league that has fewer fans than players and that’s losing millions of dollars a year? The players are making an average salary in the $46,000 to $55,000 range, which is paltry by big league sports standards but pretty good for a part time job. Maybe they’ll follow the lead of the American Airlines waitresses flight attendants, who finally realized that bankrupting their company wasn’t so smart, considering the alternatives.
