WNBA All-Star Game set for Connecticut

LJPT2.jpgAlthough I’m still waiting for the league to recognize it has West coast fans, I have to say the WNBA’s decision to go back to Mohegan Sun Arena for this summer’s All-Star Game July 25 is smart. Yes, the league doesn’t have to pay much to get its crew on site for the game and the festivities will garner publicity in a diverse range of media outlets — which might not have happened elsewhere. But the casino, with its locked-in environment where you’re not even encouraged to take a run far from the premises, creates the flair you’d expect at a showcase event for a sports team.
The league hasn’t gone west for the game since the debacle in Phoenix in 2000. Los Angeles, Sacramento and Seattle could probably draw better, however. Maybe next year, what do you think?
