    I, on the other hand, always root for the team from the West.

    It's been that way since I moved my family to the Valley of the Sun forty years ago.

    Go Seattle! Beat D.C., the home of gridlock. :)

    Yeah I'm more Sue Bird than Elana Della Donna. I am going for Seattle, too.

    But you have to admire Elena Delle Donne for the career she's had despite battling Lyme disease.

    I only want the Mystics to win because they have never won one. If Seattle wins, they will have 3, tying us :). I much prefer Bird over Delle Donne, but oh well.

    You convinced me to change my mind. I will root for the Mystics, the team from the East for two reasons.

    As you said, if Seattle wins, they will tie the Mercury with three championships.

    And my younger son did his post-Doctorate work at University of Delaware when Elena was there. :)


    If only Diana had been left at Shooting Guard to lead the way instead of wearing herself down moving to Point Guard. Her shots were so flat from fatigue from bringing up the ball all series long.

    I like Sandy Brondello. But this one is on her.
