Lost funds

Storm center Tiffani Johnson wore a dejected look before game-time Friday, but it had nothing to do with her pulled groin. The injury has actually improved and she should be able to play considerable minutes off the bench to help the Storm fill the void left by top reserve Wendy Palmer (achilles).
Johnson was really upset at losing money.
No, it won’t at the casino’s slots, either. She misplaced her per diem in the airport, which amounted to $600 for 10 days. The money was stashed in a cash envelope and signed for by Johnson, so the team technically can’t replace the funds. Teammates said they’ve offered to take the player to dinner, but eating falls on Johnson’s shoulders for the remainder of the trip.
“I’m going to be eating peanuts,” she said.
But even those cost $6.50 in most hotels.
