Mystics Game

I had never seen a women's professional basketball game before last weekend, but when my dad got free tickets and gave them to me, I was definitely excited to go! So I invited a friend and we headed down to the Verizon Center.

I was very pleased with the game! For one, I prefer women's basketball to men's: there's more skill involved, rather than just dunking all the time. Plus, because the game wasn't televised, there were no commercial breaks, therefore the game lasted less than two hours. We had good seats, the fans (a lot of kids) were really into it, and the Mystics won, so it was a fun time!

Here are some photos for your enjoyment:

 Great seats!

 Such tall ladies!
Katie Smith from the opposing team is retiring this year, and at the game they announced many of her accomplishments, including three Olympic gold medals, two World Championships, and the fact that she is the all-time leading scorer in women's basketball.
This photo is interesting for many reasons. One, what's with the panda? I know the National Zoo has one, but so do many zoos...And these two ladies have had season tickets for 16 years. I didn't even know the Mystics had been around that long! And why would you hold on to DC basketball tickets for that long anyway...
