Well, the WNBA conference finals are set. It is the Detroit Shock vs. the Indiana Fever in the East, and the LA Sparks vs. the Phoenix Mercury in the West.
C and R are glad to see Lisa Leslie and LA are still alive, although they made it close in the conference semi-finals, going to three games and all with Seattle. We would love to see her close out her remarkable career with a championship. And Candace Parker is playing remarkable well for a woman WHO JUST HAD A BABY! Let’s see the NBA players do that! We hope LA does well against Phoenix, even though we hate to root against Diana Taurasi.
Games start Wednesday.Oops, almost forgot, the Stanford women are back on American soil, going 3-1 in their tour of Italy. We can’t see them play until November 1st. JJ writes about all the great stuff they saw.
Remember when C and R said they met up with Michelle Smith, the reporter that covered women’s Bay Area basketball for the San Francisco Chronicle and then took a buy out because they were cutting her job anyway, at the Sacramento Monarchs Game….do you? Well, anyhoo, she has not one, not two, but three blogs! Well, really three and a half as she sends stuff to WomenTalkSports, same as us! Geez, some days it’s all C and R can do to get out of bed and get on with their hum drum lives, let alone muster up enough energy to write a blog and here Micelle has three! (three and a half!). Of course, be kind to C, she is teaching her 15 and ½ year old son to drive and she is practically catatonic after each “joy ride” that it is all she can do to get from the car back to the house in one piece….but we digress. Here are all three of Michelle’s blog sites: AOL Fan House, and CSN Bay Area, and still under construction, LeftCoastHoops.
Go get ‘em, Michelle.
