Sunday, September 5
I'm still a little stunned, but the Storm came back from -- what? 19 points at one time? -- to beat the Phoenix Mercury, 91-88, and win the Western Conference championship. So. Fucking. Awesome. I admit, there were times when I doubted we'd be able to pull out this win. I figured I could finally wash the grey "Bring it" t-shirt I've worn during all the Storm playoff games. I rationalized about coming back to Seattle, and how this team wouldn't lose two in a row. Turns out? Not necessary. A Bird 3-point dagger with 2.8 seconds left clinched the win. And now the Storm rest until next Sunday, when we start the WNBA Finals. Bring it!
