I thought the fact that the women's champion earns the same prize money as the men's champion at Wimbledon was a landmark achievement for gender equality in athletics.
But this might be a more definitive moment: the WNBA's first... are you ready?... bench-clearing brawl. Punches thrown, takedowns, suspensions, injuries - the works! Nasty rivalry, apparently, between the Los Angeles Sparks and the Detroit Shock. Who knew?
Speaking of shocks, pretty hard to believe this would take place at the Palace of Auburn Hills, isn't it? That kind of thing never happens in the Motor City.
