“The Ashleys” take over Storm media day

Ashleys.jpgThe Storm officially introduced their roster to media on Monday, thinking the highlight would be stars Lauren Jackson and Swin Cash. While it was good to see both healthy, it was Ashley Robinson and Ashley Walker (pictured right by the Storm) who stole the show.
Both returnees are vying for roster spots. They have an edge because they know coach Brian Agler’s system, but chemistry could play a part, too. They displayed their enduring personality on Monday. If you’ve ever seen the adult animated TV show “The Oblongs” think “The Debbies” without the meanness. In fact, the gist of growing friendship is that both are incredibly nice.
“Ashley Robinson is a doll,” said Devanei Hampton, who played college hoops at California with Walker. “She’s more of a sister and Ashley Walker is more like a mom. So there’s a whole family thing going on. Ashley Robinson has a lot of experience in the WNBA and, as far as myself, I go to Ashley Robinson or Camille if I need anything or if I’m not understanding anything. Ashley (Walker) — she has to deal with me either way.”
As the tandem interview progressed, Robinson (A-Rob) and Walker (A-Walk) finished each other’s sentences and opened up with humorous stories about being ultra feminine and nice.
“I said something dumb in practice and the first thing she said was, ‘I’m going to like you!'” Walker said of when she clicked with Robinson as a rookie last summer. “We had a moment.”
Of course my recorder’s battery died, so I don’t have the full audio for you.
Luckily others were there, including Q13 Fox, so hopefully they post the video — which really captures the humor. Until then, you can enjoy this audio. Robinson told me later that “The Ashleys” did end up doing a jumbo screen skit for KeyArena. Here’s to both making the final roster so you can view it.
