F-R-I-D-A-Y Spells Today
If you haven't been following, the Liberty site is doing a moderate job keeping up with the info on the gals overseas. Still, I'd like to see some pics and better coverage. Or, really, just Martina Weber's phone number, her likes and dislikes, and her favorite kind of flowers.
Some stuff about Tiffany Jackson and her former team, the Longhorns. We got our mitts on her now, and we're not giving her back!
The Times is covering coverage of the WNBA. How meta is that? You know, for all their hem-and-haw about the coverage, the Times itself doesn't do much reporting on women's sports (let alone MEN'S sports).
Coquese Washington, who spent seven seasons in the WNBA and ABL including a stint with the Libs, is coaching the Lady Lions and has a nice piece written up here. Personally, I despise Penn State with the heat of a thousand suns (in spite of - or perhaps in part because - my brother goes to school there), but it has thousands of devotees.
I told Clay Bennett doesn't give a shit about Seattle. Of course, it's always been a stupid idea to move a team from SEATTLE to OKLAHOMA CITY. It's also kind of a raw deal for David Stern to come down so hard against the Emerald City, promising never to return if the team leaves. Not only does that sour support in the city anyway (probably their point), but if the Sonics (and by association, the Storm) stays, there's going to be a lot of residual anger.
The National Team beat ASU. Whoopee.
Speaking of Arizona, Phoenix is going to be hosting the 2008 All-Star game. I gotta give props to the WNBA for holding back the location of their all-star game until the year before, because it allows them to showcase stars in cities that are building up some kind of heat (the Mercs recent championship) and push it to a boil. You could say they raise the Mercury!
The GM of the Fever discusses how Indiana won so many games last year. I can tell you in two words: Tamika Catchings.
Remember how I said Rodman coaching in the WNBA is a bad idea? Apparently, I'm not the only one.
That's it for me. I'll see you on Monday.
See ya, Space Cowboy...
