Poetry Corner: "Bonnie the Bomber"

The Bootleg is proud to present the first-ever Women's Basketball edition of "Poetry Corner". Former Stanford point guard and fast-rising media maven Ros Gold-Onwude takes pen in hand to express the sheer madness of the Cardinal's latest downtown bomber, 6-3 true freshman forward Bonnie Samuelson!
