Warning! Do NOT Eat or Drink while reading Marissa's Comcast SportsNet blog! Failure to heed this Warning could result in choking, which could lead to serious injury or DEATH!

In the event you are home alone, please study the illustration provided of the self-administered Heimlich Maneuver before reading!

If, despite these warnings, you decide to read Marissa's blog while eating or drinking, the BasketCases' Legal Counsel advises you that you do so at your own risk.

Okay, here's the link. In other news . . .

The Night Afternoon the Lights Went Out in Georgia Verizon. Katie Carrera reports in the Washington Post's Mystics Insider (among other news -- all worth reading) that earlier today (Tuesday) the practice court at the Phone Booth was inexplicably plunged into darkness a half-hour before the scheduled end of this afternoon's practice. Coach Plank had no choice but to conclude the session early. Two-a-days, only a single day off since the start of training camp . . . hmmm, the BasketCases are wondering if any players happened to be spotted lurking around the circuit breaker panel just prior to this mysterious "lights out."

Going to the Dogs. Boston, Hen, Chloe, Mr. Sawyer, Redd, Sleepy, Biggie, Scout . . . just some of the dogs belonging to owning Mystics players and coaches this season. DC could possibly be the most dog-on team in the WNBA! Assistant Coach Trudy Lacey blogged today about her newest family member, Scout, and the "pack" mentality of the Mystics team. As out-and-proud dog-lovers, we hope to hear more from the team about their championship-caliber "canine roster".

Don't Forget: The Mystics' second (and final) pre-season game (against the NY Liberty) is this Thursday at 11:30 AM at the (hopefully well-lit) Phone Booth. Wondering how you can get away on a work day? The BasketCases have two words of advice: Root Canal.

I read 'Rissa's blog. HILARIOUS! As for tomorrow's game, I'm not feeling that well. I think I'll need to make an appointment with Dr. Johnson and visit her office on F Street between 6th and 7th.

Dear Stewart,

Glad to hear you got an appointment with Dr. Johnson. She's the best! But just so you know, she tends to run very very late. So be prepared to spend an hour or two in her waiting room before you get in to see her. You could miss 3 hours or more of work tomorrow. You might want to let your supervisor know you could be gone that long.

Get well soon!

As I said, I have been feeling a little under the weather, so I may just call in sick tomorrow. Don't want to infect my co-workers, you know.

Dogs, dogs, dogs!! Love the canine connections. We are owned by a very strong, athletic boxer. Would kill for his hops!! He can dunk I bet!! Though he is "older", so maybe he'd pass first now!

OK, I guess you have to be a fan of the Mystics AND the Terps to be THAT enamored of her blog.

As a Duke and Mystics fan, I just thought about what a kind hearted person Alana is - too soft to tell a lie with a straight face.

Now, if Monique wanted to punk 'Rissa, she's pull it off without a second thought. Just ask Nikki Teasley.
