Last Sunday her team narrowly beat my team, and on the one hand, I was deeply bummed—it was so close! We almost had them!—on the other hand, damn she’s a fine fine player. And, oh, how much I love watching her play. I just prefer, you know, when she’s playing for the Opals and they’re winning the world championships.
How good is Lauren Jackson? So good that we have to triple team her:
That’s Tiffany Jackson, Ashley Battle and Shamika Christon doing the honours. Go Liberty!
She’s 196cm (6ft 5in) but she can run like the wind:
She’s so mighty that mere chairs cannot contain her:
She smiles like a goddess:
And battles like a warrior:
That’s the Liberty’s Janel McCarville attempting to battle back.
She’s my hero:
Cathrine Kraayeveld (obscured by the non-corrupt WNBA ref) and Shamika Christon attempt to shut the mighty Loz down.
Oh, and um, just in case you think I spent the whole game stalking LJ, I also saw this great hat:

Those are great photographs.
Apropos of absolutely nothing, I wanted to let you know that a company called Fresh makes a Mangosteen Soap.

Rebecca: Isn’t he good? Our seats are in the second row. So, yeah, pretty courtside. Actually, I married Scott for his Liberty season tickets.
Kristine: That’s horrifying! Mangosteens should be eaten not turned into soap!

oooh…i love your sporty posts! lauren jackson is amazing. i’m pretty sure that my team (phx mercury) had to triple team her as well. if it weren’t for penny taylor, lj would be my favorite player. but hey, penny’s on my team and lj isn’t.

Oh, Justine. You make me smile.

Amy Fiske: Penny Taylor is pretty fabbie. She was the MVP when the Opals took the world championships last year. And what a year she’s been having with you guys this year. Incredible! They say it’s cause her hubbie’s in town.
I’m so jealous—your team has an Aussie player and the Liberty doesn’t. So not fair. And you guys have Belinda Snell too. Even unfairer.

yeah, i saw the world championship game on tv. amazing. phx loves penny.
as for your jealousy…you’ll just have to make a road trip during the wnba season. if you ever do, let me know and i can probably get you some free seats. how does front row behind the bench sound? you could chat with penny and snelly.
