Home Stretch!

As every Mystics fan knows, the Eastern Conference playoff race is coming down to the wire.

On Friday, the Mystics play the first of their remaining five games of the regular season, all critical to making the playoffs. The Mystics will play three of those five games at the Phone Booth, and GM Angela Taylor sent an email to season ticket holders today encouraging everyone to turn out for those games (or, if you can't make them, to give your tickets to folks who will). Help give the Mystics a true home court advantage! Here's some of what Angela had to say:

Hey Mystics Fans,

First and foremost, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for your continued support of our team this season (and through the years). YOU are the BEST fans in the WNBA & have been a critical part of our success here at home. With a 10-4 record when we are here in the friendly confines of the Verizon Center, there is no doubt that you give us a huge home-court advantage. With that being said, we NEED you now more than ever.

The race for the Eastern Conference Regular Season Championship is heating up. Every game counts. Every basket counts. Every rebound counts. Every free-throw counts. AND every single one of you counts...big time. Three out of our five remaining games take place right here at the Verizon Center & we want to show the rest of the league just how big a home-court advantage we have.

We need all of you (our Mystics Season Ticket Holders) to find your way down for Friday's game versus Minnesota, Sunday's game versus Seattle, and Friday (August 20th) for our final regular-season home game against conference foe New York. If you can't make it, please pass your ticket(s) on to someone who will be rowdy!! Tell your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone who will listen that the Verizon Center is the place to be for the next several weeks!!

We like that rowdy part! So c'mon everyone. Let's turn out in force and Rock The Blue in the Phone Booth.

It all starts tomorrow (Friday) at 7 PM.

Go Mystics! . . . Beat the Lynx!

I'll grab some pompoms and see if I can find some of the noisemakers that they've given out at camp day in previous years. They'll need all the home court edge they can this weekend.

I understand that are going to be handing out vuvuzelas to the first 5,000 fans tonight. That should help with the home court advantage. Buzz away.
