  1. The American Ladyball team got knocked out of World Cup today.

    Don’t cry girls. You did your best. We’re saving a prime space on the refrigerator to display your participation ribbon.

  2. @5 Anonymous: Well, if an ancient commenter by the name of “ussjimmycarter” were still here, he’d probably say it’s because LADIES invented “nancying around.” But he’s not here, so he wouldn’t say it.

  3. @5 Anonymiss – while I agree that it’s rude of me to disparage the fairer sex like that, the simple truth is that it’s a necessity as a matter of semantics.

    Fact is, no other word connoting “non-masculinity” has quite the same lyrical quality to it as “lady”.

    Although Jimmy’s implied suggestion of “Nancyball” is close.

  4. @10 Harvey – I still don’t like it. What about “Yawnball” ?

    or…if it MUST be feminine (which I still don’t understand) then “Girlieball”? I’ve heard “girlie” used to describe guy stuff that is not masculine. “Lady” is the counterpoint of “gentleman”. Let’s not disparage it.

  5. ” … it’s rude of me to disparage the fairer sex like that…” Women? FAIR? In what freakin’ universe? Whoever labeled women the “fairer” sex knew nothing about women.

  6. The guys who play the game are in truly magnificent physical condition, so Ladyball is a bit harsh. I can go with Yawnball though because the average game has about as many goals as a batch of Anonymiss’ cookies have walnuts.
