Don Imus is a 66-year-old man who insists on growing his hair out as if he is in some sort of alt-country band, so we did not treat his characterization of the Rutgers women's basketball team "nappy headed hos" ("hoes"? We never know!) with the same expectation of credibility as we would the same phrase coming from, say, Nas. Nevertheless we were pretty surprised by today's press conference wherein said basketball team responded to Imus's slur ( Since when is a women's basketball team comprised of "ho"s anyway? Did you mistake it for the NCAA coed naked lacrosse championships, Don?) The girls were all really wholesome-looking, and they all had inspiring stories of being concert violinists and scholars and the sort of shit you never hear about from male college athletes. None of them had any real "ho" potential, even the above pictured Heather Zurich, who could maybe be a potential slut at Brigham Young, but never in Jersey.
