Today In Local Sports News: A "Fracas!" / The Boys' TV Pick of the Fall Has Arrived: Cougar Town!

The talk of the town today is, of course, the battle royale (or "fracas," as the LJ-World has termed it) that erupted on campus last night between football and basketball players, resulting in an injury for basketball star Tyshawn Taylor.

According to LJ-World opinion writer Tom Keegan, fights between football and basketball players are a common (if largely unpublicized) fact and have been for some time. Keegan claims that last night's "fracas" concerned a "dispute over a woman who used to date an athlete from one team and now dates one from another" (LJ-World).

Chip: "I knew this was either about pussy or publicity, but my money would have been on publicity. With the success of KU football, the basketball team has barely made the front page in recent weeks, which makes them insecure and violent."


Tonight brings us the premiere of the boys' most eagerly awaited new fall series: Cougar Town, starring Courtney Cox.

Entertainment Weekly gives it a "B" and writes: "Mixing clinical realism (when did you last hear a C-section scar used as a punchline?) with ridiculous slang (a new boob job is referred to as ''gorilla heads''), Cougar Town is so brashly vulgar, it's endearing."

Richard: "Why do angry feminists never use that line about the LC: 'so brashly vulgar, it's endearing?'

Shouldn't the slang for breast implants continue with the feline theme, or are plastic-surgery enhanced older women some sort of chimera?
