Want fries with that Storm?

Storm players will take over the McDonald’s in the shadow of the Space Needle on Thursday, helping the fast food chain promote its new Southern-style meals. The promo is part of McDonald’s extended partnership with the WNBA and will include players wearing the golden arches logo on their jersey for opening day on Saturday and the May 20 matchup against Sacramento.
F Sheryl Swoopes is elated. One of her jobs in high school was working at McDonald’s. She did everything from “dropping” the fries to working the drive-thru for about $4 an hour. She gave her entire paycheck to her mother to help with bills around the house. Mom always gave a few back for Swoopes to “waste.”
“I loved my McDonald’s job,” she said. “I’ve always loved McDonald’s, but I also worked at KFC and the public library.
“I remember I was so worried that I was going to cook the fries too long, not understanding they’re on a timer so, when the timer goes off, you pick the fries up. And I just took the salt and poured it because I love salty fries. Tomorrow I’ve got to remember it’s not about me, not everybody likes salt. I’ll just do a little bit and be done.”
Plans are still in the works, but organizers are trying to work it so Swoopes handles the drive-thru again. More details below.
