Deep Thoughts About Sheryl Swoopes
Some words about Sheryl Swoopes in the style of “Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey”:
Swoopes is a fitting last name for WNBA legend Sheryl Swoopes. First, Swoop is somewhat reminiscent of the sound of a basketball catching nothing but net, more so than swish which, lacking a “p”, doesn’t account for the light popping sound. Also, swooping is associated with birds, and Sheryl Swoopes is like a bird. Not a small aerodynamic bird that glides sideways, over, and under with ease, but an ostrich that can run fast, and generate enough upward movement with its wings to lift itself higher off the ground than most land mammals.
