Sparks game thread…

TECH PROBLEMS: We’re experiencing problems posting tonight. I’ll have to check back with thoughts when everything is fixed. Please check back and thanks for reading. Los Angeles got a little testy during Game 2. Seems the public relations staff didn’t like the “Beat LA” chant flashing on the KeyArena jumbo screen during timeouts (without sound, of…

Wilkins update

While viewers did express dislike for Sonics guard Damien Wilkins during his debut as a sideline reporter for FSN during the Storm’s June loss to San Antonio, it wasn’t a determining factor for him not being included this week’s final airings on the channel, according to FSN. Wilkins was just testing the waters, commenting in…

Robinson’s neighborhood

You can’t argue with Storm center Ashley Robinson when she proclaims herself her toughest critic. If she misses a shot during games you can literally hear her shout, “I suck right now” to herself. “I probably shouldn’t say that,” she said bashfully. “But I was trying to be emotionally into the game no matter what.” Fans saw…

Welcome back, Jack

Former owner Jack Rodgers was at practice on Thursday, proudly wearing his Storm garb and joining the post-practice huddle. As a board member, he declined to comment on the sale of the Sonics/Storm, but the women said it was good to see him and have his continued support. “This group will always know the people that…

Lennox wounded

Betty Lennox limped off the court in the win against Phoenix on Tuesday. She tweaked a ligament in her right knee and had it heavily bound in ice after the game, but doesn’t expect to miss any matchups. “Everybody is just trying to tough it out,” Lennox said of the Storm’s recent rash of injuries. “I’ll just…

Your thoughts?

Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson wanted to know what I thought about her team’s sale to Oklahoma City-based businessmen before she shared her feelings. I told her the same thing I’ve been spouting all week — I can’t believe NBA commissioner David Stern would move the Storm franchise. I can’t see the Sonics leaving either, but I’ve…

Small world

It’s hard to forget a 6-foot-8 woman, so it was no surprise when Tom Guy spotted Storm coach Anne Donovan he immediately recognized her from her high school days in Ridgewood, N.J. Guy was an official for some of Donovan’s games at Paramus Catholic. Her coach also helped Guy snag some college officiating gigs. But Guy…

Dazed and confused

Spent a lot of time surfing the Internet to see how Storm fans were reacting to their WNBA team being part of a $350 million pro basketball package sold by primary owner Howard Schultz to a group of Oklahoma City businessmen spearheaded by Clay Bennett. While most still don’t want to be taxed to pay for…

New site

Storm fans are voicing their opinions, or should we say opposition, to today’s news about the Sonics and Storm sale to five businessmen based in Oklahoma City. While the new owners told media at an afternoon news conference that they would negotiate with the city of Seattle for 12 months before making a decision about…
