Listen to yo' Mama!
"Mama Taj" McWilliams-Franklin, who's been blogging on WNBA.com for some time, has now put up her first post since joining the Washington Mystics . . . and it's GREAT! Here's the link. This is a Don't Miss! Here's a little sneak preview of what Mama Taj has to say:
"So to all of you reporters out there who have us finishing ninth in the East… wait, there are only seven teams… but you get my point… We're gonna be better than you think! . . . . We were just a couple of games out of the playoffs last year. So we feel like we are there now. Every person has to buckle in and play to the best of her ability and we'll bring some excitement to the city of Washington."You gotta love her!
And speaking of blogs . . . Mystics COO (and Coco & Kelly's fraternal triplet) Greg Bibb also addresses the "respect" issue in his post on today's Mystics: Pass The Ball Blog:
"Despite our undefeated preseason, most of the pundits are predicting a very disappointing 2008 for us. In fact, in a recent WNBA survey of league general managers, the Mystics were voted least likely to qualify for an eastern conference playoff berth. Moreover, most league previews have Washington at the bottom of the conference. I’m ok with this because I love the role of the underdog and I really think our team is going to surprise some people this season. Stay tuned."We will!
