Well, as the WNBA season is approaching I think it’s time for me to start blogging
again. I think my last blog was about my dog Miles and I’m pretty sure that was
about 6 months ago, so lets give the blogging a nice warm welcome back.
This “off season” has been a little different than my past two over here in Russia. For
one, I’m the only Terp here. For the past two years I was lucky enough to play with
my old college teammates “Lang” (Crystal Langhorne) and “Harp” (Laura Harper),
but this has been my first year in Russia without them. Tear. Instead I’ve been
teaming up with two Olympians, Tina Charles and Lindsey Whalen. I wasn’t sure
what to expect at first, not really knowing either one of them outside of post game
handshake lines and a lot of film, but it has been awesome getting to know both of
them beyond basketball. Overseas can either be brutal or a blessing when it comes
to who you are teamed up with and I can honestly say I got lucky landing these two.
We are about to enter Russian league playoffs this weekend and we have a really
good opportunity to do big things in this post-season stretch. Our extra motivation,
if we win our first round we will get a break to go home for about a week, so that’s
all we needed to hear. I’ll be at the Final Four, or a beach.
Speaking of the Final Four, I need to fill in my brackets today before it’s too late. Just
looking ahead I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick Maryland over Tennessee in the Elite
Eight and run my mouth to Candace when the Terps pull the upset. Gotta love the
underdog, especially when it’s your alum. On the men’s side I’m pretty sure I’ll have
Sparty going all the way. They’ve struggled with injuries all season long, but finally
everyone is back and coming off a Big 10 championship I feel good about their
chances. Don’t let me down Izzo!
Well I realize this is a bit short, but lets face it I’m no Hemmingway so this is all I’ve
got for now. Time to go make some dinner and watch more NBA League Pass. Oh
