Three quarters of the WNBA playoffs have gone exactly how I want them to. Phoenix beat Seattle (two Aussies against one); Indiana beat Connecticut (one Aussie against Satan’s own team); San Antonio beat Sacramento (one Aussie—assistant coach Sandy Brondello + 2 ex-Liberty stars against no Aussies and no ex-Libs).
Now we just have to beat Detroit and my basketball year will be complete. Seriously, I didn’t think we’d make the post-season so for the Liberty to get past the first round would be a second miracle. I love what Shamika Christon, Janel McCarville and Loree Moore have been doing in the post-season. I’m so stoked for the 2008 season. The New York Liberty is going to be insanely good.
This year’s WNBA season and post-season has been the best I’ve ever seen. I cannot believe how amazing the games were tonight. I am in heaven.
Let’s go, Liberty! (And the Opals for gold next year.)

i was in a restaurant with my writers group, watching the stars game on my computer. there was frequent fist pumpage and some not-so-quiet squealing. it was such a heart attack-inducing fourth quarter, but then vj passed the ball to becky in the last ten seconds and it went in and i did a little dance right there in my chair. oh how perfect.
oooh!! did you know that helen darling is a children’s book author?

Other way around: Becky passed the ball to VJ! Becky was being tripled teamed and VJ was wide open.
I wonder if Helen Darling really is a children’s book author or if she’s ghosted?
Oh and lookee—some more folks are starting to get how cool the silver stars are.

well, the kids in the book are named after her own kids. so i dunno. it got a nice review on amazon.

yeah, the sun have erin phillips, when she’s well. so what’s up with that?
go phoenix! go liberty!
sorry, can’t bring myself to cheer for the silver stars since i’m a phoenix season ticket holder. but when we’re not playing against them, i’m happy enough to see them win. anyone who knocks out sacramento is okay by me!

I cannot reveal the dark secret of Connecticut’s evil in such a public forum. Let’s just say I barrack for Erin when she’s playing for them, but not for the team.
Phoenix-San Antonio is going to be a much more exciting series than it would have been if Sacramento got through. Don’t get me wrong I like Sacremento’s excellent D, but I do love to see to fast shooting teams go up against each other. I believe we’re up for a rash of 100+ games.
I’ll be happy whoever wins. At the moment though I’d be very surprised if San Antonio knock over Phoenix.

oh hell. you cannot just throw around “satan’s own team” and then not explain.
wah! now i’m scared. i don’t want the season to end. but i like high scorers.

ohhhhh, woe is me. we have lost by two frelling points. and i was sad to hear of the liberty’s last game.
but i must continue to hope! no counting of chickens and such.
