The Female Chuck Norris

My friend Paul sent this to me today (I totally used your name, Paul...consider this your very sad and pathetic 10 seconds of fame, dude). It's an article about who I believe is the female Chuck Norris. While my Vols suck donkey balls this year (they do...they really, really do), the girls basketball team still rocks, as I know it always will as long as Mrs. Summit herself is in charge.

Summitt has shoulder surgery for raccoon attack
Sep 25, 1:39 pm EDT

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Tennessee basketball coach Pat Summitt had offseason shoulder surgery, not for a sports injury but because of a tussle with a raccoon.

The winningest basketball coach in NCAA history has had problems with her right shoulder since dislocating it while chasing away a raccoon poised to attack her Labrador. The attack came near her home on March 5, just days before the Southeastern Conference tournament.

A month later, Summitt guided the Vols to their eighth NCAA title.

Summitt had arthroscopic surgery Thursday in Knoxville, Tenn., to repair recurring instability problems.

The coach will begin rehab in about a week. The Lady Vols begin practice on Oct. 17.

She didn't even have to use her gun. You know she has one. Total studette.
