I keep getting boatloads of hits from Google searches for Ashley McElhiney. It's an odd story and all, but I wouldn't have guessed there'd be that much interest in a soap opera involving a team from the obscure ABA, even if it involves a unique coach.
Anyway. CNN/SI's Chris Ballard has a fairly thorough and rather amusing rundown of the situation so far. A more straightforward recap is in the IHT, which notes that team co-owner/pop singer/attention hound Sally Anthony does not have the power to fire McElhiney on her own. Indeed, the Nashville Rhythm has now issued an apology via email to McElhiney and just about everyone else. They'll reveal their ultimate plans for the team shortly, so stay tuned.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 01, 2005 to Other sports | TrackBack
