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.
