Tonight the Storm knocked off the Chicago Sky, who looked out-of-sorts from the beginning. Lauren Jackson scored 33, the dance troupe rocked the place, and yours truly got the best line of the night with an alley-oop assist from the trp.
On the Key Arena monitor, up comes an ad for season tickets. "Folks, it's not too late to buy," barks the announcer.
"What kind of deal do they have for me?" asks the trp. "Something for a guy who's moving away, but doesn't know when?"
"That'd be the Seattle Sonics Special," I shoot back.
Also, I did not know the depth of the trp's love for Sue Bird. Now I do. That is all I will say.
Meanwhile, Seattle's other winning team beat the Rouge Hose in thrilling fashion, power versus power as J.J. Putz mowed down Manny Ramirez to close out a wild, sloppy 8-7 victory. Dave Niehaus just about burst an artery calling the pitch.
