Will You Marry Me? Well, at least there were two Mystics fans who went home happy tonight. Unfortunately their happiness had nothing to do with the game. Washington lost at home to the defending WNBA champion Sacramento Monarchs (73-60) and dropped below .500 for the first time this season. However, with about 2 minutes remaining in the game, Lisa proposed to Anthony, her beau of 13 years, on the Jumbotron. Happily, he said yes. Finally, the hometown crowd had something to cheer about during the 4th quarter from hell.

Alana Beard was back in the lineup for the first time since spraining her ankle last Saturday in L.A. Ever the fighter, she had spent the last week icing her ankle for half an hour every 90 minutes, all day and all night. The team seemed hesitant at first with Alana back on the court, perhaps not sure how well she could play. The Mystics dug themselves into a 14-point hole, but managed to climb out of it by halftime and take a one point lead into the locker room. The teams played even during the third period (and not particularly well), but then the Mystics went completely cold (we're talking ARCTIC cold) to open the final quarter, not scoring a single point for the first 5:40 of that period, while the Monarchs scored 11. And that was that for D.C. . . . A very lackluster performance by the Mystics. At least Anthony and Lisa will have wedding bells.
