Game Thirty-Three: Storm vs. Dream 12 September, 2008

It was just like the old days, watching Sue and Lauren cheering their team on to a win from the bench at the end of the game...except it was the beginning middle AND the end of the game last night. It did make me a little sad for the Dream to have them lose to a team that didn't play a single starter from the beginning of the season. It was great to see Camille, Tanisha, Ashley and Katie succeed on their own. That has to be a huge boost to their personal confidence and can only help the team on the playoff push.

I was so happy to see Betty and Izi, but it was disappointing for everyone, Betty included, that she was unable to play more of the game.

Fan appreciation night was pretty tame...maybe they are saving up for a championship celebration.

Well, there's just no way around it - we're not a very good team.

It was an amazing feat by Agler guiding the "white team" to victory. The Storm seem to have an amazing chemistry. If they don't win it all this year, however, what is the team going to look like in 2009? What about Griffith and Cash? Will they be back?

Griffith is questionable but has left it open. Swoopes has said she wants to be back. Cash is under contract, but her back could be an issue if she doesn't have surgery.
