How appropriate on the eve of former Stanford player Nneka Ogwumike’s 22nd birthday we write a short blog post to tell everyone how excited we are to be heading to LA this weekend for a “Nneka Ogwumike Weekend.” Tell your friends, I am sure there are still seats left.
The Sparks are on a mini-3-game losing streak, but are sure they will right that for the Fourth of July weekend. Speaking of which, C and R snuck out to our local bike trail at night and made it all the way to Great America and the maybe 49ers stadium parking lot and saw some fireworks close up (Funny, no fireworks are scheduled for the actual 4th of July).
We have half a day to kill on Saturday. Any suggestions for what to do in LA?
In other news:
It has been great watching all these Olympic qualifiers on TV (and one right down the street at the Shark Tank in San Jose, the gymnastics qualifier). All are so athletic and inspiring. If you are not feeling Team USA you are probably dead. BTW, Women’s Basketball just released their Olympic schedule. C and R already have their calendars marked. Also, women’s US National Soccer Team is looking good, Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan are scoring machines. Can’t wait for that!
Who said the summer is dead time for women’s basketball?
Follow C and R all summer long on Facebook and Twitter, too!
