Thursday offered a bizarre juxtaposition. Two wildly successful lesbian American athletes, two starkly different lots.
Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe went to the White House to receive the Medal of Freedom from President Joe Biden.
Basketball superstar Brittney Griner went to a Russian court to plead guilty on drug charges.
Rapinoe's fiancée attended the White House ceremony.
Griner held a photo of her wife as she entered the Russian court.
After the ceremony, Rapinoe flew to Mexico to rejoin the American national team, who celebrated her.
After the hearing, Griner returned to her jail cell, where, at best, assorted insects kicked up their heels.
At the White House, Rapinoe's white suit had Griner's initials stitched into the lapel, linking the two women on a day that Alfred Hitchcock might've directed and Rod Serling should've introduced.

I Have My Priorities
The WNBA season is about to start, and I'm worried.
My team, the Seattle Storm, is the defending champion. Last fall, Storm point guard Sue Bird became engaged to soccer star Megan Rapinoe, and just recently Storm forward Breanna Stewart successfully popped the question to her girlfriend, Spanish hoopster Marta Xargay.
Will Bird and Stewart have the required fire in their bellies to repeat as champions now that they're giddy in love?
I tell you, for the first time, I'm questioning whether same-sex marriage was such a hot idea.
