The Liberty lost to the Mystics 46-79. 46 points. In an entire game. Ugh.

Chiney-less (tooth issue) Sun put up a fight, but MIP candiate Allie Quigley did her part (17pts) to help the Sky stay within reach — and then EP came alive to lift the Sky to a 16pt.

The teams shot 39.7% and 36.9%, so of course it would be a layup that would decide the game. Minny’s just lucky that hand belonged to Augustus and not Indy’s Larkins.

The Shock like to score. The Dream like to score more.

“Yes, I did, Ethel, but alas, I read it too late. I was not in attendance at the Lib game against the Mystics as it was my bowling night. Knocking down pins caused me to miss out on commiserating with a visiting Mystics fan.”

“I don’t see the need to commiserate. The Lib won, Fred.”

“Yes, Ethel, but don’t lose sight of the big picture…”


“The book. The Libs playbook!”

“Oooooh. I get it. The Mystics HAVE stolen a page out of the Dive playbook.”

“Because, as that dear Washington fan said, ‘ I will be rooting for the Liberty, because the only way the Mystics have a chance to get a new coach is if they lose!”
