Nice one.

The city where I live has a WNBA team coached by one of the Sleestaks (Bill Laimbeer I kid you not).

Bill Laimbeer was a Sleestack? That is all kinds of awesome.

And, by the way, Lidsville makes H.R. Pufnstuf look like an episode of Law & Order.

...

That's a great episode of Mr. Show... In fact, it's the one that i always show to people when i'm trying to uh... "turn them on", to the series. The ironic thing is that most Krofft shows are just as funny as that clip, if not more so. I have a Krofft boxset that features everything from The Bugaloos to Bigfoot & Wildboy. And those shows are just so crappy, and so far out there... that i'm still amazed that they ever made into onto television in the first place. I feel sorry for those of you who only had this kind of crap as entertainment as children.

Like I said, I kid you not, it's there on the Wikipedia page  for confirmation, but I actually learned it in the Freepress the first time the Shock Won the WNBA championship. Aparently the eiditors thought the championship wasn't compelling enought news so they threw in the sleestack thing. Actually a couple of other players of Laimbeer's age rage also slid on the insectiod-reptillian body suits.

Unfortunately, women's sports have always gotten short shrift from male sports writers/editors. In the case of the WNBA, which is at least fifty times as interesting as men's basketball, this is particularly galling.
