On the eve of the All Star Game, the WNBA held its annual Welcome Party for the All Stars, corporate sponsors, VIPs and anyone else lucky enough to score a ticket. This year's event was held in the stately Mellon Auditorium on Constitution Avenue.
Mystics' All Stars DeLisha Milton-Jones and Alana Beard were part of the welcome committee. D.C.'s own Becky Brunson on stage with Western Conference teammates Taj, Seimone, Penny and Cappie.
From the Wild Wild West: LoJack, Becky, DT, and (now starter) TT
From the East: DeLisha, former Mystic Asjha Jones, Candice Dupree, and Katie Douglas.
Coach Boo and Becky.
Vanessa Carlton provided the evening's entertainment (and definitely made some new fans).
The current All Stars were not the only All Stars in attendance. . . T-Spoon was as friendly and charming as ever.
And so was her former Liberty teammate, Kym Hampton.
Great place, great people, great party. And we're looking forward to a great All Star Game!
