Surreal

cue
Despite her “striking” resemblance in this picture to Tonya Harding, Sally Anthony has not appeared on the Jerry Springer show. Yet.

Surreal: On her website, minor-league-basketball-team-minority-owner-and-entertainer Sally Anthony says she’s “proof that dreams can become reality.” Yeah, right, and dreams can also turn into nightmares and Felinniesque freak shows. Talk about dreams: She’s a “You’re so Nashville…” fantasy.

(Note: I would like to make clear this post is entirely in “jest” and is parody and satire and all those other libel-shielding things. It does does not really reflect the high regard this blogger has for minor league sports team owners, or minor league entertainers, for that matter. And what’s more, my using the term “minor league entertainer” should not be construed to suggest Ms. Anthony is minor-league or obscure. The fact that I nor anyone I know has ever heard of her does not mean she isn’t a really big-time star. So, just to make it clear, no where on this post do I describe Ms. Anthony as being “odd” or “kooky.” Let’s just say, she’s special. Okay.)

Update: A person who is too bashful to comment, even though one can do so anonymously, e-mailed me to suggest that someone who would display the photo on the left prominently on the front page of her website would likely see herself as the victim in all of this self-inflicted mockery. She’ll actually think we’re laughing at her, not with her. That being the case, I’d like assure Sally that we’re not making fun of her just because she’s made a complete fool of herself. (By the way, after noticing that picture, I’ve changed my mind. She’s got more of the Courtney Love look going on that the Tonya Harding.)

Update II: Did I say Courtney Love? I meant Kurt Cobain.

    And she’s getting ready to be alot more famous than she was last week.

  • Barbara

    Who gave her the black eye? McElhiney or Freiji

  • Hudge

    i’d say the shiner was self-inflicted over the weekend.

  • MMMikey

    I’d love to pass along the missus’ first reaction to checking out Ms. Anthony’s site last night, but I see you have purposely avoided words like “skank” in your post. I will honor that and refrain as well.

  • Mr Roboto

    What’s funny about all of this is, if she’d handled herself sanely at the game on Saturday, she had a pretty good point. In a league in which the salary cap is $120K, how can you pay one player $10K for two games?

    What stinks is that the Rhythm appeared to be getting really good press and was headed in the right direction…until this.

  • lcreekmo

    Well it may be dumb to pay him $10K for two games, but it doesn’t sound like McElhiney made THAT decision….sounds like Anthony’s beef was really with the other owner and the GM. If Freije had been hired for the two games, why not play him?

    i love that she explained her hospital visit to some reporters as being caused by a fall on the stairs, and then she told the city paper she was in the hospital because of a dog bite. i mean, come on, as far as talking to the press goes, pick one lie and stick with it. that’s what i’ve always done and it’s worked for me so far.

    (note: if it later comes to light that a dog bit her and caused her to fall on some stairs, i retract the above comment)

    okay, so i was right about her making up the story for the hospital stay, but i’ll refrain from making fun of her for why she got there (it involved mixing painkillers with alcohol, and self inflicted wounds) and just say that whatever is going on with her is a sad situation.

  • Mr Roboto

    For what it’s worth, evidently the pictures on her own website are extremely bad. Here’s a sports blog with a slightly better picture (safe for work, obviously) to accompany its story.
