The Cupboard Refrigerator is Bare!

At the start of each WNBA season, the BasketCases look forward to a number of things. One of those is a winning season. Sometimes (OK, frequently) we've been disappointed about that one. But another thing we've looked forward to -- and never been disappointed with -- until now-- is receiving our official Mystics Refrigerator Magnet, which displays the entire season's schedule (home and away, the televised games -- all the information needed to be sure we don't miss so much as a minute of Mystics action!).

Now, whether the team wins is not entirely within the control of the front office. But the magnetic schedules? That's another story. And yet, to our great dismay, two home games have gone by, but no magnetic schedules. We got a nice white Rally Towel at the first game, and a diva-esque Pink tote bag at the second (for Breast Health Awareness night). But no schedules! And looking at the upcoming list of giveaways -- no magnetic schedules anywhere!!

Indeed, we were given little fold-out paper pocket schedules at the last home game, but how often do you look in your pocket? (The BasketCases consider themselves lucky if they even check their pockets before they put their clothes in the washing machine!) But the fridge -- now that's something all of us check pretty often. We've tried to come up with an alternative solution (tape on appliances? not a good idea; paper schedule attached by a magnetic chip-clip? not a particularly effective display), but when we exhausted all reasonable possibilities, we came to only one conclusion . . . We Miss Our Mystics Refrigerator Magnets!!!

While there is nothing worse than a blank (or empty!) fridge, I don't miss the giant magnet with badly-designed microscopic font. I'd rather have the "download our schedule into Outlook" button several other teams offer, but we haven't yet figured out how to do it yet.

I noticed that the rally towel and tote bag are sponsor-logo free!! Could the Mystics actually be paying for these instead of having a sponsor logo plastered all over then? I'm very glad there wasn't a Verizon or other logo on my stuffed panda's butt last year. Thanks, Sheila!

You can download the schedule to your outlook calendar. http://www.wnba.com/mystics/schedule/

Click on the "Download 2007 Mystics Schedule) right above where it says "Mystics Schedule 2007".

I downloaded my schedule into my phone, but I have to say that I have every single magnetic schedule since the first season and it kills me to think there isn't a 10th anniversary edition! KT
