Sunday Stories.

Great attitude. For Maryland and for Mystics fans, today's South Jersey Courier Post has an interesting feature about Crystal Langhorne. It's not a surprise to read that rookie Lang is working hard to improve her already-skilled game, trying to learn as much as she can from the veterans, and preparing herself mentally to play however many minutes she may be called on to play.

Leadership. Mystics fans no doubt have noticed that Monique Currie has been playing very well lately, displaying the energy and skills we knew she had but hadn't seen on a consistent basis earlier in the season. Mo's important contributions to the Mystics have not been lost on Katie Carrera, who observes in today's Washington Post that Mo is "proving she can be the leader the Mystics need."

Game Day. Tonight, in the second game of their west-coast road trip, the Mystics take on the Seattle Storm in Key Arena at 9pm EDT. As the Seattle Post Intelligencer reports, although stacked with All-Stars, the Storm (8-7) haven't been having as much success thus far this season as many expected. Unfortunately for visiting teams, the Storm's woes have mostly been confined to the road, as they are 1-6 when traveling but an impressive 7-1 at home. The game is not being televised or webcast, but you can listen online.

Motherhood Confirmed. A very reliable source has confirmed that Nikki Teasley is indeed the mother of a baby girl. Congratulations, Nikki T (and thanks, DT)!

As I've said before - I love Lang's game. And I know she's going to really shine in the league. I just hope it's with the Mystics!
