arkansas’ first professional sports team?

From the Women’s Hoops Blog, the WNBA is looking to form a new team. It’s location? Quite possibly Bentonville, Arkansas. They’ll be called the Wal-Mart Falling Prices Smiley Face Guys.

“This would be the biggest thing to happen to the state since the (University of Arkansas) Razorbacks’ national championship in 1994,” Christopher Talley, a local investor involved in bringing the NBA to AR, Sports Betting Picks delegate said.

I am all for women’s sports popping up all over the place. You should know that. But why do I get a gut feeling that any professional womens sports team that’s going to be located in northern Arkansas is just destined to fail?

What's up?
