I've gone to a few of these; back when i was working at a west village real estate agency the boss used to give out extra tix.. They're fun.
Joan Jett almost always sings at halftime. Like clockwork.

it was pretty fun! seats were AWESOME (center court, row F of seats after the floor stuff). shameka christon is GOOD. i was very torn cause i wanted to be a fan of my "home" team for once. after all, i have no reason to hate the liberty, it's not like they're the knicks or anything. but, i found that even though i tried to support ny, i am a sucker for the blue and red so i quietly championed detroit the whole game and hey, they were good! and they had that thing tied up by the end of the 2nd.

to shorter quarters, i say, "boo."

and, we did not get joan jett, but some awesome kids drum group that made me so squee.

oh, and wnba fans are kind of scarier than nba fans. a mass of women passionate about a team is not something i would wanna mess with, which is probably why i was cheering detroit quietly hehe.

seriously i felt way more prepared to deal with the obnoxious jersey dudes at the nets game than i would have were anything to break out with the many riled up women.

cool story bro time...

my brother and I went to the wnba all star game this afternoon, and we showed up early so some lil dancer ladies were like DO U WANT TO DO SOME ON COURT STUFF and I like UH and my brother was like SURE.

so after halftime, we get ushered to the behind the scenes area and we are strapped to each other with a bungee cord (important detail) while helmeted. we are to try and pull each other off balance while we are making baskets.

so we are out there and I'm like...not gifted at ballin (our patron saint Matt Bonner, hail matty). I'm tryina shoot one handed and like brickin point blank. at some point, Liz Cambage from Tulsa comes out to pull my brother off balance. I tried to get in a tug of war with my brother, and he yanked hard while I was holding on. CUE ROPE BURNS AND EXCRUCIATING PAIN. I made all of one shot and he made 4, thus earning him $100 in jamba juice dollars. I will receive a wnba prize package in the mail. hope I get some fuckin ace bandages, this shit hurts like a mug.

oh we basically missed the whole second half for that, so first half action was dope, Diana taurasi was jackin all kinds of threes. angel mccoughtry did this sikk self alley op off the backboard, she was stuntin.

Sue Bird is the oldest player in the @WNBA.

That didn't stop her from dropping FOURTEEN in the final 5:48 to send Seattle to the Finals 🔥 pic.twitter.com/jCqw1cyDsB
