NOT subsidizing professional sports

Perhaps yesterday I should have noted that all the sponsorship dollars being subsidized by tax payer dollars are going to men's sports.
The companies who had various forms of sponsorship with the Houston Comets are off the hook. The franchise has folded in the midst of looking for new ownership. But no one would spend the money, it seems.
Women's Hoops Blog has some coverage of the Comets' exit from the WNBA.
And Mechelle Voepel has a very good column about how this does NOT mean the WNBA is in trouble.
Read them both for a more intelligent analysis of money and women's sports than I could possibly offer.
