Past Our Bedtime on a School Night. The good news was that NBA TV made a sudden decision late Thursday to televise the Mystics' game in Seattle. The bad news was that game time was was 10pm, EDT. That's pretty much when the BasketCases, who are hardly party animals, generally turn in. Staying up till midnight on a weekday night to watch basketball, even our beloved Mystics, is just a bit tough when you are turning into old farts like us. We made a valiant effort, but failed.

Reading this morning that the Mystics lost to the Storm, 86-78, committing 23 turnovers along the way, we have to say that perhaps going to sleep wasn't such a bad thing...

The first quarter was a Comedy of Errors for both teams! Our Mystics looked like they had lost their groove and had NO idea where they left it. Bad passes, raggedy offense...it was ugly. They kept the game close until late in the 4th quarter. The lead must have changed a dozen times, and then only by a point or two.

No one asked me, but I think they could have won this game with even a bit more focus, and 2 ounces of energy. They let this one get away.

Posting-Up also has to admit that though she listened to the last quarter on the radio, snuggled in bed, she also fell asleep before the final buzzer. Where DID my misspent youth go?! ;)
