If you click on the busty girl with a book (which is about as close to a dictionary as you will see on the Gwizzlies site) under the heading SPECIAL EVENTS you go to Mcdonalds website....................unless eating at Mcdonalds is considered a SPECIAL EVENT

"If games are missed, it hurts no one" ...... ABA CEO Joe Newman 2/9/09
Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.
GEORGIA GWIZZLIES TO OPEN TRYOUT CAMP TO WOMEN
Macon, GA -- The Georgia Gwizzlies will be making team history when it conducts its Open Tryout on October 25th. Both men and women will be invited to tryout. The Gwizzlies tryout at Memorial Park Basketball Gym will host the event from 10-4 pm.
"With the success of the WNBA, I think someday a woman will suit up on an NBA uniform," said Embry Malone, Gwizzlies owner. "And in the NBA, they don't pay the big money just to suit up. You have to be able to play."
Malone, a veteran GM and head coach, really believes that there are several talented women who could compete in the NBA if given a chance. "I watched Becky Hammon play this weekend against the Washington Mystics. She can play," said Malone. "We'd like her to tryout in October, as an example."
On an NBA uniform, not in one? Is that what the "Georgia Gone Wild" will be about??
"And in the NBA, they don't pay the big money just to suit up. You have to be able to play" As opposed to the ABA where you just suit up.
Honored to have been the 13th player for the Vermont Frost Heaves game on 2-16-07 against the Maryland Nighthawks.
The ABA is the basketball equivalent of Amp'd Mobile.
"WE NEED COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS TO BECOME A SPONSOR FOR THE UPCOMING 2008-09 ABA SEASON THAT WILL END MARCH 2009 GEORGIA GWIZZLIES SECOND PLAYOFF RUN TO AN ABA CHAMPIONSHIP
Okay...I give up. When was the first playoff run??? Oh...That's right, Joe's
unseen and unwritten rule book derailed them last year.
When asked why the Georgia Gwizzlies and West Texas Whirlwinds dropped out of the playoffs Friday, hours before a scheduled postseason game:
The Georgia Gwizzlies and the West Texas Whirlwinds did not drop out of the playoffs today. To be eligible for the ABA playoffs, a player had to have played at least 3 regular season games with the team. West Texas was on their way to Macon when we found that neither team had a complete roster with players who had played at least 3 regular season games and the league advised them that they were playoff ineligible.
Not nit-picking here, but with no stats or roster updates in the league office/
basement. How does anyone really know who played, any number of games
with each team?
