Read All About It

The heat's already oppressive this morning. So what better to do than hunker down in a comfortable, cool space (if you can find one) and read two really good articles about the Mystics, one here by Milton Kent, and another here in USA Today.

It'll be even hotter tomorrow (102 degrees according to the forecast), so come on down to the very well air-conditioned Phone Booth at 7 PM, where you can see the Mystics take on the Indiana Fever.

Probably to the surprise of almost no one, Indy beat the struggling LA Sparks last night, a win that moved Indy into sole possession of first place in the East (a half-game ahead of the Mystics). Washington, of course, could turn that around on Saturday with a win over the Fever, a team the Mystics have beaten twice already this season . . . both tightly contested matches. It's hard to beat any team three times in a row, so the BCs will be heading downtown (despite the heat) to help make sure that the home court really is an advantage for Washington tomorrow! Join us!

Go Mystics . . . Beat the Fever!

I was really rooting for the Sparks last night, and I thought they might pull it off, and then the first quarter ended.

The WNBA attendance problem, mentioned in the USA Today article, is really a shame. Except for the home Storm games, it seems that most of the games that I've seen on LiveAccess are at mostly empty arenas.

It seems like for years the Mystics had $5 tickets, which was how we went to a bunch of Mystics games in the first several years, and we'd be up in the 400 sections. I think we'd get them at Giant or something (I have a horrible memory!!).

Maybe more marketing campaigns like that (maybe with Safeway, since there's one so close to Verizon Center) can start to get more people out.

I'll all up for helping to get more people there. Especially to cheer them on Saturday for their win.

Go Mystics!!!

Be nice if our local media took more of an interest in the Mystics - still don't see much coverage of the Mystics on the local sports broadcasts! Waiting for Ivan Carter to show the Styx some more "love"!
