several years ago if you told me i'd be a wnba/seattle storm fan, i would have laughed in your face. now i pass time during the fall, winter and spring by counting the days until the season begins, which it did yesterday!
if you haven't been to a game but you like basketball or sports or want to do something fun and inexpensive or want to show kids what *real* teamwork looks like, then i can't recommend the Storm games enough.
to start with, you can get lower bowl seats for $10. the games are very family-oriented and kid-friendly. the players often sign autographs after warm-ups. etc.
but the best part is that you will watch 40 minutes of pure athleticism by women who play because they love the game. they don't get paid millions of dollars. they don't have private jets to take them on their road trips. they don't hog the ball and choke their coaches. they play a wonderfully pure form of basketball and will give up a basket for an assist more times than you can count.
i'm a former hard-core nba fan who will NOT go to an nba game anymore but have missed only 2 wnba games in the past 5 years - once for my honeymoon and once for the birth of my little dude.
come check out the 2004 championship team. schedule, team, etc. info is at http://www.wnba.com/storm/. and if you want to speak w/a ticket rep, send me mail and i'll hook you up with mine.
