Sleep Now in the Fire, Bennett
So, for starters, the Libs are doing full recaps of everybody's season. That is, every PLAYER'S season. Here is Erin Thorn's, the latest. There are also ones for Jessica Davenport, Lisa Willis, Tiffany Jackson, Ashley Battle, and Cathrine Kraayeveld. They're only about four to six paragraphs each, and they don't really tell much beyond the obvious, but it IS the company line, and there are a couple interesting facts in there, even if they gloss over some of the other elements of the season.
According to Clay Bennett (owner of the Sonics and Storm), the Seattle Storm will be staying put... for the 2008 season. Not to ruin the party, but this man ALSO said that he would keep the Sonics in town until 2010, and is currently trying to get out of their lease. He also says that he doesn't want to split the teams up, yet to keep the teams together, he would need to begin the proceedings for a move by October 31st, the NBA deadline for the 2008-2009 season, and really, would there be any sense in keeping the Storm in Seattle for another full year when he's already printing out "Oklahoma City" stationary? He might say that he's the King of Thule, but until you see the crown jewels, don't start paying him taxes. Bottom line: I don't trust him, and neither should you.
Other that, quiet. Until tomorrow, then?
See ya, Space Cowboy...
