Catch's last game (here at Key Arena)!!

Also, what a sports day-- final in Euro Cup soccer, last day of U.S. Olympic trials for track and field and gymnastics-- lots of drama....

And also the last day any of us can tell the Storm staff what a terrible job they're doing of promoting Lauren's retirement game.

I've seen/heard nothing on Seattle TV/radio, and only one small story in the Times.  They only thing they've done is pimp Lauren out to STH's at $500 a pop in an effort to sell tickets. 

That is absolutely shameful!  Instead of getting on the phone to the Seattle media, asking them to talk up the game, they decide to use Lauren to badger STH's into buying more tickets. 

I plan on talking to staff and owners, and our corporate blinded CEO if I see her.

czechchick, they do have that $15 a seat deal going (for some seats), but it looks like that's it

That's still NOT getting publicity out to the public for the game.  Because who does that offer go to?  The STH's like me, and yes, I got it.  Or it's sent to people who have purchased tickets in the past. 

Do you hear abou that deal on TV, radio, etc.?  Do you hear anything AT ALL about Friday's game being Lauren's jersey retirement?  NO!!!!

yeah, I know Sad

when you think about it, she is maybe the best player the world has ever seen, in that sport (not just in ability, but in sheer "want-to"!), and she spent her entire WNBA career here, in Seattle...2 championships...-- it really should be bigger, but, you know, it's women's sports....

as far as the game, well, you could see that it was the 4th game in 6 days, with 3 on the road, now tons of rest, what a crazy schedule!

it was great to see Lin Dunn and Anne Donovan!!!!!!

After seeing how Seattle's had some of the most brutal schedules the last few years, I wonder if someone in the league office doesn't like the Storm for some reason.

Catchings is pure class.

I attended her postgame event yesterday, part of her Legacy Tour that benefits her Catch the Stars Foundation. I have always believed her to be one of the classiest players to ever play for the WNBA, and I can honestly say that after last night, I believe it even more.
