Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Friday, February 26, 2010

From Jayda:

Not to discredit anyone in the WNBA, but Dan Hughes is the classiest guy in the league. I'm not saying this because he sports a cool Jimi Hendrix tie when San Antonio plays at KeyArena, it's because of the opportunities he endless tries to give his staff.

He dished out another on Thursday, stepping down as the Silver Stars' head coach to become their General Manager. Former Storm guard Sandy Brondello, his assistant the past five seasons, was named Hughes' replacement and Brondello's husband, Olaf Lange, will act as her associate head coach.

WHB note: I fell for Dan when he came to the Garden and made a serious run at Richie Adubato with his Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon tie. And then admitted that, while at Disney with his kids, he and his wife snuck out to catch a midnight Joan Jett concert. *thunk*
