Camp shrinks before it can grow.

According to @seattlestorm on Twitter, Chelsea Newton abruptly opened the field for perimeter positions at the Storm training camp by announcing her retirement. That is not a big surprise to many of those who have watched her play. She was a solid defender with limited offense. However recent injuries have impeded her ability to play quality defense against the athletic perimeter players in the league and she appears to have decided to move on.

No excuses for lazy journalists...

As if we needed one more reason to love the work of Q McCall...

He let's us know what he REALLY thinks of the inane question that annoyed so many of us throughout the NCAA women's tourney.

One reason I can't continue to cover the WNBA the way I have in the past is that I simply don't have the time to do it right. Apparently that isn't an obstacle to many actual, PAID journalists.

I have taken to spending more time participating in sports over the past year, and spending less time writing about sports. On a side note, I am more than halfway done with last season's lineup information, though with all the roster changes this year...it may not tell us more than what we already know. Lineups with Bird, Wright, Cash, Jackson and Little are really good and the others...well they weren't. Coach Agler seems determined to change that. I like his training camp this year...though I still see his opening day roster already with just a few questions.

Storm go Bing!

Time to change my default search engine.

Microsoft has stepped up as the third and largest sponsor of the WNBA via placing their logo on the game and shooting jersey's of the Seattle Storm.

So Bing! is now my official search engine.

Sorry Google, but my loyalty to the Storm is greater than my many year relationship with your engine.
