Markus: I see it, but I don't believe it.

Tyler: Go Aunt Nancy, Go Aunt Nancy, Go Aunt Nancy!

Markus, the BasketCases can assure you that you're not alone! We're also seeing it tonight on ESPN2, but we still don't believe it.

To say we're surprised to see "Aunt Nancy" -- a card-carrying AARP member -- on the floor for the WNBA's Detroit Shock would be an understatement!

When the BasketCases first heard that Nancy Lieberman had been signed to a 7-day contract by the Detroit Shock, our first thought was she'd be filling in for suspended Detroit Assistant Coach Rick Mahorn. But noooo! Later we learned she was signed to a player's contract!

In an already unbelievable week, this is truly unbelievable!

Let me admit up front that I have never liked Laimbeer. Upon hearing of his signing of Ms. Leiberman, I honestly felt he was thumbing his nose at the WNBA, treating it like some stunt. I would think there are other players cut from training camp rosters that would be available. Whey would he turn to her? I don't get it and frankly don't trust his motives at all.

IMHO this is wonderful, in a surrealistic way. The old gal got a few assists in her first game, and I hope she hits some treys and otherwise contributes to Detroit's cause.
