Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Monday, May 17, 2010

We didn't see opening day in any arena, but we did watch Phoenix eke out a one-point win over L.A. in a typically scrappy, sloppy opening day kind of game: fun to watch, but no ad for the league.

Penny shot well: "My legs weren't really underneath me," PT said-- she flew in from Turkey last Thursday. Diana shot badly, but got the benefit of the doubt (well, I was doubtful) on a late-game block/charge call that sent her to the line.

L.A. got 30 minutes from rookie PG Andrea Riley, who has the legs for the WNBA but played the same game she did as a Cowgirl-- the one in which she expected to take the shots. She ended up 4 for 14.
