Game Day: New York, New York!
Start spreading the news,
They’re coming today
Can't miss being part of this - against New York
Time to lace up those shoes,
and get ready to play
Gotta steal the heart from them - New York, New York
Send a wake up to the city that doesn't sleep
Show 'em we’re queen of the hill - top of the heap
Little DC blues, are melting away
Gonna make a brand new start of it - against New York
If we can beat 'em here,
we can beat 'em anywhere
We’re ready for you - New York, New York!

Frequent Flyer Miles . . . The WNBA's and the Mystics' media arms have prompted stories in today's Washington Post and Washington Times about the very same subject -- Alex Chambers. Alex is a fan from Phoenix who's in the midst of a "13 Teams, 1 Journey" tour in which he will see every WNBA team play in its home arena in the span of 34 days (and will sample a lot of airport food along the way!).
Alex, an elementary school special ed teacher, has dedicated the tour to the memory of a friend who died of breast cancer, and is hoping to raise more awareness about the disease. The league has given him media credentials, and he's been interviewing players and posting videos of his interviews online. You can follow Alex's journey via his blog, here. The tour brings Alex to Washington tonight, a city he knows well (he earned his Masters degree at Gallaudet). So if you see Alex at the game later, be sure to say hello . . . let's give him a big Verizon Center welcome!
