No "Glamour Deficit" For The Nets

Kris Humphries and the future Mrs. Humphries are in Monaco celebrating their engagement and enjoying the Formula One Grand Prix.  Four hundred miles to the north, Sasha Vujacic and the future Mrs. Vujacic are in Paris where she is playing in the French Open ...and harboring thoughts of a return to Wimbeldon. 

As the Wall Street Journal reports, in a story on Kim Kardashian as the future "First Lady of Brooklyn", "the Nets have to be thrilled. Glamour is an undeniable part of sports here, and the Nets have long had a glamour deficit. Brooklyn needs some glitter." While the biggest story with the Knicks is the Garden's "transformation", the Nets are all about  Kim's ring, Kris' "bod" and whether their wedding with top Will and Kate's. 

And if Maria does make to the center court at the All-England Lawn Tennis Club, there'll be even more glamour, more publicity as Sasha cheers and fist pumps from the stands. All of it "is not likely to be lost on Mikhail Prokhorov,"Forbes notes. Of course you can't please everyone, but really, even if Bill O'Reilly called the happy couple "pinheads", is that a bad thing?
