Listen, it's not lost on me that the headline above reads as extremely sexist. However, Ayesha Curry is an online chef so it's also professionally accurate. Not my fault that a well known generalization also happens to parallel her career path. That's what we call a loophole, and I don't even feel bad about using it because Ayesha Curry was basically jumping through hoops to make herself look like a jackass last night. Will someone - no - anyone grab this woman a Xanex? If the Warriors are going to keep soiling themselves in a championship series than she's going to need a fistful of downers before Game 7 tips off.
A small, small part of me can actually sympathize. She might be Steph Curry's wife, but when push comes to show she's really nothing more than a fan. A fan that has grown far too accustomed to winning. Does she sound ridiculous when she claims the NBA is conspiring against a team that is coming off a championship, followed by a 73 win season, followed by an historical comeback in the Conference Finals? For sure. Does she sound anymore ridiculous than Patriots fans did after the Giants ripped their hearts out when they had a chance at an undefeated season? No, not really. Unforeseen circumstances in sports almost always bread irrationality - especially in the moment. Add in the fact that she's a woman and she's even more inclined to grasping at the straws of the illogical (can't be sexist if it's true). Fact is that Ayesha Curry has never been relevant and a loser at the same time. With those twitter followers comes a responsibility not to sound like a buffoon, and watching your team get gut punched is enough to send any invested sports fan down a one way path of absurdity. Unfortunately for her it's 2016, and we get a second hand look at that online emotional adventure - whether she deletes her tweets or not.
Plus, In many ways her claim that her father - who happens to be African American - was racially profiled and nearly arrested entering an event in which the performers are predominantly black makes her proclamation that the NBA rigged a non-competitive basketball game with a couple of soft hand checking fouls sound reasonable...
