A Nice Place to Visit.
San Antonio certainly has been a good destination for the Mystics the past couple of years, as they beat the Silver Stars in Texas in 2006 and 2007. So far this season, however, the Silver Stars are undefeated at home (thanks, in part, to the leadership of that famous Russian Olympic hopeful, Becky Hammon). And the Mystics are winless on the road. This means, of course, that with the two teams squaring off tonight in San Antonio at 8 PM EDT, either the Mystics will continue their win streak in the Alamo City (and finally get a road win), or the Silver Stars will remain unblemished at home.
Unfortunately, Mystics fans will not be able to see the game, as it isn't being televised or webcast. But you can follow the action live via the audiocast on WNBA.com.
Mystics bits . . . Nikki Blue will be joining the coaching ranks this off-season as an Assistant to new UNLV Head Coach Kathy Olivier, for whom Blue played at UCLA. . . . and Mama Taj and Kia are featured in this video on WNBA.com about their oh-soy-healthy eating.
Another WNBA bit . . . if you haven't already seen the Phoenix Mercury's (mock) promotion of the Cappie Patch Doll, you've really missed out! Check the link here for a viewing. [Warning: No eating or drinking while watching, unless you're prepared to spit up on your keyboard.]
