Mark Your Calendars!
On Tuesday, March 16, at 1PM, the Mystics will be holding a press conference at the Verizon Center to announce the signing of "one of the most prestigious additions in Mystics history." All renewed season ticket holders have been invited to this press conference (another good reason to renew if you haven't done so already). In addition, there will be a "Meet and Greet" with the newest Mystic that evening at Bar Louie, also for renewed STHs.
In the entire history of the Mystics franchise, the team has never been able to sign a single major free agent. Not one. (Quite honestly, until recently, most big stars with other options simply didn't want to play here.) So regardless of who this player might be (and, yes, the BCs do have a particular player in mind . . . but we're only guessing), we think her signing will be a big breakthrough for the franchise, a message that things are turning around here in D.C. and that WNBA players recognize it.
Press conference and Meet & Greet on Tuesday, followed by St. Patrick's Day
on Wednesday . . . wow, this has all the makings of a very fun week!
