Basketball Wives' (or not) Evelyn Lozado makes the rounds of Boston sports teams

In the early 90's there was an SNL skit with Mike Myers called "Coffee talk with Linda Richman."  One of its recurring themes was Myers' character becoming "verklempt," and saying "talk amongst yourselves, I'll give you a topic.  The ___  ___ was neither ___ nor ___."  If this doesn't ring a bell click on the above link, in which Myers says "transitional Romanesque architecture was neither transitional nor Romanesque" (about a minute and a half in, at the 3:00 mark).

Where am I going with this?  That's how I feel about the popular TV show Basketball Wives; it's neither basketball nor wives.  Case in point: today one of it's stars, Evelyn Lozado, was in the news for revealing that she's pregnant with former Boston Red Sox (baseball, not basketball) player Carl Crawford's baby (the two are not married).  Before that she was briefly wed to one time New England Patriot (still not basketball, but I guess she was a wife) Chad Ochocinco.

However, the original reason Lozado was on the show was for being engaged to retired Boston Celtic Antoine Walker (again not married, but at least that's the right sport).  You've got to give her credit though for putting together that impressive hat trick of local athletes from three different sports.  Speaking of "hat tricks," I wonder which ex-Bruin she's got her eyes on next?
