Hopefully for once in her life Stringer will resist the urge to opportunistically turn a public appearance into a political speech about race and gender. Vivian, talk about your coaching and the game, but leave the rest of your speech at home.

Overdue and well earned honors for Vivian. A proven winner on and off the court wherever she has coached. Iowa's loss was certainly Rutgers gain when she headed back east. Bill (your late husband) is certainly smiling from heaven.

I agee that she has done an awful lot for Women's Basketball. But one has to wonder about her demaner when her team asks her not to sit on the bench and appear so disgusted when they are playing there butts off.

And as far as the race card - at least she has never said "For the first time in my life - I'm proud to be an American"

Obviously none of you believe in free speech. It's not obscene, it's not cursing or sexually risque, and it's not overtly racist or sexist, so what's the problem? Just because you're offended by it doesn't mean the rest of the world should have to bow to your will. I wasn't offended when Don Imus said it, I don't believe he should have been fired, and I don't see why it should be censored.
