Great crowd here tonight, too. I love bitching at the refs
That was my first Mercury game! Really fun. My son has been to all the major sporting events in the Valley, and he commented the Mercury games are better attended and mor fun than the Suns games he want to last year! We both commented how the Mercury played like the Suns. They ignored Griner during the middle of the game just like the Suns forgot about Ayton. They benched Bonner at key points just like Igor would sit Booker at odd times. Speaking of Booker, he was courtside at the game for about a half, secong through third quarter.
On a personal note, I was thrilled when I saw that 9 more Mercury games would be on TV from June
on, following the first two which were on ABC and ESPN2 in May, which I saw.
With this most recent game, I saw that my upgraded Contour package with Cox will not carry 7 of
the 9. I have the 3rd tier package (Contour TV), but not the 4th tier (Contour Ultimate).
Those 7 games are on CBS Sports, which is only on the Cox Ultimate package. Being retired, I can't
spend any more than what I am.
Griner continues to frustrate me with her play. Her lack of tenacity with rebounding and offensively on the block irritates the crap out of me.
