47 Days

Reason #47: When I was younger than I am now (and yes, I am still young; I acknowledge this and will do so until I'm 72), I played basketball and loved basketball and sometimes even breathed basketball. At 12, my dad took me to a Grizzlies game when the team still belonged to Vancouver, and I have to say it was a highlight of my childhood. I walked away from that game, little Grizzles toy clutching a basketball in its hand clutched in my hand, and dreamed of playing for such a team. That didn't happen for a number of reasons, but there are those who have gone on to greatness, and Seattle is host to an incredible women's basketball team: Seattle Storm. The only group more intense than this WMBA team is, perhaps, Storm fans. I intend to be one. :)
