WNBA Stars Stand Up To Gilbert Arenas And His Sexist Comments
Huffington Post - about 1 year
After former NBA star Gilbert Arenas expressed a series of sexist, denigrating thoughts about the state of the WNBA and its athletes on Wednesday, the female athletes themselves expressed their own about him, calling Arenas out for his hypocrisy and blatant objectification of women.  Arenas’ Instagram posts claimed that many WNBA players are “ugly chicks,” and suggested that they compete in virtually no clothing to entice more people to watch their games. WNBA players weren't having it, declaring that Arenas' remarks exemplify the sexism that female athletes are subjected to on a regular basis that their male counterparts never even have to consider.     Swin Cash, three-time WNBA champion (2003, 2006, 2010) To all my smart, beautiful young female ballers...

NBA Cares (For Real)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The week's headlines didn't paint a pretty picture of our beloved sports institutions. The NFL is beset and besieged with bullying and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. MLB battles soap operatically with a player of whom they dare not speak his name (where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, indeed). The NHL brass talks of fighting, whether it is to be or not to be. And the HBO's Real Sports celebrated their 200th episode examining the cost and corruption of the Sochi Olympics. Where can a sports fan turn to guiltlessly enjoy the hyper-commercialized and overproduced games of our youth? Just look at the week the NBA had. On Monday the Sacramento Bee reported that Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, a native of India, has been actively working to make basketball "a household word" in the country of 1.2 billion people. The team's dancers, performed in India this summer, the team now has a Hindi-lauguage version of their website -- all part and parcel of the NBA's effort in India since ...

Farm Workers Win Case Against Gun-Toting Foreman
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The Wild West is alive and well for some low-wage workers, but things are beginning to change thanks to a courageous group of farm workers in Washington State’s Yakima Valley. Juan Morfin, a foreman who farm workers alleged routinely cheated them out of wages by intimidating them with his gun, recently lost his Yakima Valley apple orchard job thanks to a class-action lawsuit filed by a farm worker, Sandra Saucedo, and a group of her co-workers. Saucedo, who had the courage to call 911 on behalf of her fellow workers in an attempt to stop the gun use, was thrilled with the outcome. “Farm work is hard enough without the foreman pulling out a gun to intimidate people. We tried to complain to his brother and the people in the office, but they never took our complaints seriously. They can no longer supervise workers at these orchards and that is a big victory that we hope will protect future workers,” said Saucedo.

Terrence Ross Wins NBA Slam Dunk Competition, Toronto Raptors Rookie Wears Vintage Vince Carter Jersey
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
HOUSTON - Terrence Ross had to settle his nerves at the start of the All-Star dunk contest. By the end, he was calming down a ball boy he needed as a prop for his winning slam. The 6-foot-6 Toronto rookie leapfrogged Michael Costolo, the son of Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, whipped the ball between his legs and hammered home a one-handed dunk to beat defending champion Jeremy Evans in the climax to All-Star Saturday. "I told him the day before that I was going to jump over him, but I never told him I was going to go through the legs," Ross said. "He was kind of nervous. When I first grabbed him, he said, 'You're not going to hit me, right?' I said, 'No, I'm not going to hit you.'" Ross seemed to be unsure of himself in the beginning, botching his first three dunk attempts in the first round. The crowd exploded when he finally pulled it off — flicking the ball behind his back on the way up and hammering home a one-handed dunk. He earned a perfect 50 and immediately relaxed. "This is ho ...

    Cash was selected to be a member of the National team representing the USA at the World Championships held in September and October 2010.
    More Details Hide Details The team was coached by Geno Auriemma. Because many team members were still playing in the WNBA until just prior to the event, the team had only one day of practice with the entire team before leaving for Ostrava and Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. Even with limited practice, the team managed to win its first games against Greece by 26 points. The team continued to dominate with victory margins exceeding 20 points in the first five games. Several players shared scoring honors, with Cash, Angel McCoughtry, Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi, Lindsay Whalen, and Sylvia Fowles all ending as high scorer in the first few games. The sixth game was against undefeated Australia — the USA jumped out to a 24-point lead and the USA prevailed 83–75. The USA won its next two games by over 30 points, then faced the host team, the Czech Republic, in the championship game. The USA team had only a five-point lead at halftime, which was cut to three points, but the Czechs never got closer. Team USA went on to win the championship and gold medal. Cash averaged 8.6 points per game.
    Cash was one of twenty players named to the national team pool. Twelve of this group will be chosen to represent the USA in the 2010 World Championships and the 2012 Olympics.
