Back to School. Well, loyal blog readers, it's been a fun roller-coaster ride with the Mystics this season, hasn't it? But now it's that time of year when the WNBA playoffs are drawing to a close and the Mystics players are taking their well-deserved rests . . . and making plans to join up with overseas teams or take on other off-season commitments.
So while the BasketCases won't stop writing about Mystics doings (. . . be sure to look for our mobile blogging about DeLisha and Alana and the rest of Team USA when they face Australia in an exhibition next month in Durham prior to the World Championships) as well as other matters of interest to Mystics fans during the long, long (did we mention long?) offseason, the BasketCases are now going back to school to catch up with their favorite student-athletes . . . the Natty-winning, Overtime-Goddesses: the Maryland Terrapins and their exciting young coach Brenda (favorite of prison inmates everywhere!) Frese.
The BasketCases are hoping to make a few Maryland converts from our blog reading Mystics fans. The Terps are fun to watch. The tickets are cheap. The players are a great group of young women. The tickets are cheap. They have an incredibly charismatic coach. The tickets are cheap. The Comcast Center is a beautiful state-of-the-art facility. The tickets are cheap. The Terps do plenty of fan giveaways . . . if you arrive on the early side, by season's end you'll probably own an entire Terrapins Tee-shirt wardrobe courtesy of the University of Maryland! The tickets are cheap. Not to mention, the parking is free! And, the tickets are cheap.**
So the BasketCases hope to see you at some Maryland games (the schedule has just been released) . . . or at the very least, we hope you'll become virtual fans of the team by continuing to check in with the DC BasketCases blog.
And, loyal readers, if a few days go by without a new blog-post from the BasketCases, please don't be concerned that we've been carted off to the looney bin . . .While that is indeed possible, the more likely explanation is simply that we won't be blogging every day during the (very long) college season. But please keep us bookmarked in your favorites, and check in with us every day or couple of days, just so you don't miss any news of the Terps or any news of offseason happenings about the Mystics!
So, Stay Tuned! And thanks to all the Mystics fans out there in the cyber-blog-world for your readership and your comments throughout the Mystics' 9th WNBA season!
**By the way, the tickets really are cheap . . . but the BasketCases suggest that you not be cheap, and that you spring for the Reserved Seats when you come up to College Park for a game. The reserved seats are only a couple of bucks more in price, but the seat locations are way way better!
