Stuff to Say

Why am I still behind?

I am stuck on the Connecticut game. I have worked numbers off two different play by plays, one from the WNBA site and one from ESPN. Both are horribly inaccurate, but in completely different ways. For instance in the first quarter Sue Bird starts the game, checks out and then checks out again without ever checking in! I did the best recreation of the game that I could and still am off pd_swanson's numbers from the Lynx plus/minus blog. I don't know WHAT is happening. To top that off my internet router went dead this weekend and now I am on the road.

Will I ever change my Player of the Week?
When LJ stops playing like she has all year I might have room for someone else. Sue Bird has the honor once the season, all the rest are LJ.

47 POINTS!?
I have been wondering how long it would take LJ to break 40. Generally when she is playing well enough to do so she sits out the last 5-8 minutes of a blowout victory. Tuesday's nailbiter against Washington forced her to keep playing and finally break the barrier. No offense, Lauren, but I think I'd rather have the win....when will this team get defense figured out? Even if Tamika Catchings was still playing this performance might have sealed LJ's MVP status for the season.

You rock pd, thanks... Now do you have the scores...the wnba pbp is off for most of 1st quarter and ESPN's does not match and how the heck is that possible? don't they come off the same game feed?
