Lailaa is adorable and Candace glowed the whole time she was holding her.
Sheldon Williams looked like I did for a few years- basically from the point my daughter was born until her brother (19 months her junior) was about a year and half. The look was instantly recognizable.
I was watching closely (like many were) after the game for the interactions between the various players - I noticed that Tina and CP together a bit, and Swin and Catch clearly had a close bond probably due in part to their relative longevity. CP and Maya also had some nice moments as well. Just so much fun to watch
I don't know if that is meant to be an insult or not. Lol. I personally think Shelden is a nice enough looking man and more importantly he seems like a great husband and father. But during the game Candace was trending on twitter. I took a look and many of the tweets were about his looks and him getting a wife as attractive as Candace.
DT to CP
Hey, it's not like I think Shelden is a bad looking dude, so definitely not meant as an insult. But yeah, Lailaa might be even cuter if she looked more like her mom.
Lol. I saw Lailaa at the LA-Atlanta game this year (by the way the worst game I have ever seen Candace play). She was too busy playing with makeup to even watch the game. So I don't know if she will be playing a sport. She did say that Candace's gold medal was too big and she wanted a smaller one. So who knows maybe she will get interested in sports and get her own gold medal some day.
The link is of a different, merely mortal, DT to DP play.
The play I had in mind was THE Play!
The one you are talking about is where some how DT timed the pass perfectly to get it to a spinning CP and then she scored, right? I don't know how DT timed that pass and how CP was able to spin like that and get the basket. Crazy play.
I think that play was a combination of instinct and the two players knowing one another well.. DT made the pass, before CP was looking, knowing that CP would expect it. And CP knew she was open, expected the pass, so she turned her head in time to see the ball, catch it and lay it in.
That play was nuts!! DT and CP3 are on my All-World team and if they played together on a consistent basis they would be making these kinds of spectacular plays all the time......scary
Actually, I thought that CP bailed out DT on this play with her athleticism...
DT3 to CP3
It's great of the Tennessee fans and Summit posters no less, to come here and defend Parker from a few and in the minority criticisms from some Boneyard posters.
It's wonderful that they are able to do that. Too bad UConn fans can't defend Geno, Jones, Cash, Taurasi and everything UConn on The Summit. You can bet there is much more "trashing" going on there. In fact, the blogger that this thread was initially about IS a Summit poster. No surprise there.
So, while it was understandable that Tennessee fans would support Parker and defend her, it's disappointing that the same posters would ignore the "trashing" in that blog considering that is what this thread was about.
CP turned the wrong way and made a GREAT play to catch the pass.
The blogger is full of nonsense, for the men Melo went to the bench and was 2nd leading scorer, and no-one said anything except what a genius Coach K is. The object is to win the gold and that is what both the Women and men did.
Thanks, Biff. That play was so unforgettably stunning that I will cherish it as a special memory of some remarkable UConn/Lady Vol collaboration for Team USA thattranscends the nit-picks that some "fans" cling to.
The real reason Sue and D are nice to lailaa is becouse they want to convince her to go to UConn
Even in that fetid blog, they couldn't get Candace or Angel to trash Geno, which is what they were looking for, I believe. They seemed fine with their roles, and sure looked happy getting their GOLD metals. It looked to me that all the girls got along well. As mentioned above, Catch said "we grow up..." It's unfortunate that the various fans can't seem to grow up.
Does UCONN have a fashion department? That might be more likely than basketball.
Ummm NO. What were you watching?
She scored 21 points because she busted her butt on the boards, running the floor, made great cuts, set picks for pick and rolls. She played outstanding "team" basketball in the Gold medal game.
Some of yuse guys are as bad as the checkerboarders. Geez.
