Young fan: I think it's going to be hard to shoot over Dydek.
Mystics' rookie Gillian Goring's sister and her family came out to support the newest Mystic and her team.
Fans who arrived early were treated to something most folks probably never get to see. A billionaire in a pink poodle skirt dancing on the court to the tune of Rock Around the Clock.
Getting flashed by Dr. J.
An uplifting moment.
Oh yes, there was a game, too. The Mystics took on a main Eastern Conference rival, the Connecticut Sun. Chasity Melvin definitely showed up to play last night, recording a double double (22 points, 11 boards), including a very impressive 10 of 11 from the free throw line. But with Alana Beard still out because of a strained shoulder, the Sun would prove to be too much for the Mystics, as Connecticut won, 89-80. The BasketCases' favorite moment of the game: seeing three-point phenom Laurie Koehn drive for the basket and score!
Dydek taking a breather during the first half.
DeLisha's husband, RJ, with friend Margo Dydek after the game. Dydek and DMJ played together in Spain. RJ is a wonderful fan, and one of the nicest guys on the planet.
Next up for the Mystics: the Sacramento Monarchs on Tuesday night. Be there!
