Numbers



OK.  I admit it.  As a photograph, this is a nothing.  But, the City Daily Photo bloggers are posting photos today illustrating the theme of "numbers" and I am a team player even if I didn't have a photographically interesting image.

BUT, even though this image is blah, the content isn't.  Over the last eighteen women's college basketball seasons, a University of Connecticut player was named the best player in the nation ten times.  Diana Taurasi was named twice and Maya Moore was named three times.  Two of the players (Rebecca Lobo and Jennifer Rizzotti) have been elected to the Hall of Fame, Rizzotti's election coming just this month.

And, Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and Tina Charles are on the USA women's basketball team in London this week, along with former UConn teammates Swin Cash and Aisha Jones, heavily favored to win the Olympic gold medal.

You can see more "numbers" photos here.

I found the whole numbers thing a bit boring so I didn't bother to find any, but I noticed that Eric faked it and got away with that!

So you're showing a simple picture, but it has a lot of meaning..Great choice, I'd say!

Well, when it comes to women, we have your number!

Actually, that's pretty cool that U of Con has done so well by it's female players! I remember the days when women were banned from most sports.

VP said...

Yours is the right spirit: I doubt that all of us have 365 (one more this year) good pictures to post for every day of 2012...
And I like your picture anyway!

Luis Gomez said...

Excellent! Totally agree with VP.

Birdman said...

Impressive run. That's for sure.

Sharon said...

I like it! Go for the gold!

While this may not be your most "artistic" shot, I certainly appreciate the thought behind it. :)
Happy theme day!

Tanya said...

JM said...

I second VP! :-)

We cannot always show artistic photos, but when we don't we should show something about our local communities or culture. You have achieved success in that endeavor worthy of the record of the U Conn women's basketball team.

Sylvia K said...

Yep, count me in with VP and JM!! I think the info makes it very worthwhile! What amazing women! Hope your week is going well, Jack!!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh no Jack, I do wish them luck but not when they come against our Aussie Opals haha!!

Lois said...

Those are some pretty impressive numbers and it's a great post for Theme Day!

Jack how did you know we are publishing numbers? There is no CDP site is there somewhere else to get info?

RedPat said...
