Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

The Mystics took an important step closer to securing a playoff berth by defeating the Storm tonight at the Verizon Center, 78-67. Washington's victory also snapped Seattle's (league-best) 6-game winning streak.

The Storm may have been playing without Lauren Jackson, but the Mystics were playing without Alana Beard, who sprained her left ankle in Sunday's win over Minny and did not dress for tonight's game. (Well, actually she did dress . . . very stylishly we might add. We don't want to leave the impression she was unclothed! She just wasn't dressed in her uniform -- for basketball.)
