Lady Vol BallMay 26th, 2005 at 6:45 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes
Brittany Jackson is the only possible argument I could ever see for watching Lady Vols Basketball.
It’s absurd for this story to have an update, but it does. You would not believe the amount of hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth going on surrounding Brittany Jackson’s website – particularly on local Knoxville talk-radio.
I heard Jimmy Hyams and John Wilkerson bellyaching on WNOX’s sports show yesterday afternoon about how the site is “inappropriate” and could tarnish the image of Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols.
I suppose Brittany’s site – which shows a very attractive student/athlete in mildly seductive heterosexual-themed photos – does go against the image I have of Lady Vols’ basketball which is that of a bunch of 7-foot bulldykes being cheered on in an arena half-filled with same-sex couples enjoying the only politically correct sport in the area.
Yeah, a website portraying an attractive, heterosexual, white Lady Vol basketball player does pretty much fly in the face of the traditional Lady Vols image. Luckily, Brittany has graduated, so they can get back to rebuilding their tarnished image next season.
