So the WNBA turns 15 tomorrow. Who woulda thunk it? While I am by no means a follower of the league, I have been known to watch a few minutes here and there for a little basketball fix during the summer. It's nowhere near as entertaining as the NBA but I do think it has it's place in the sports world. Little girls need sports heroes to look up to as much as the guys do and the WNBA is by far the most stable of women's leagues in this country. So to honor the anniversary, here are a few cards of some lovely bball playin' ladies.
I don't know a whole lot about Penny other than she's not an American, but she is an All-Star, wears the number 13 and plays in Phoenix. I guess she's the female, Australian Steve Nash.
I remember first seeing Jayne when she played for Stanford. I thought she was basketball hot. So there you go.
Abi here is the daughter of one of my all time faves. The Dream himself Hakeem Olajuwon. I guess she was traded to Indiana from Chicago. She's pretty cute too when she's all dolled up, though I feel a little weird being attracted to her, since she looks just like her dad!
Anyway, once the NBA Playoffs are done, check out the lady ballers! It's really not THAT bad! Later.
