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!!!
