Mystics lose Game 3, Swept in WNBA Finals

The transition from the semi’s to the finals just turned the Mystics into an entirely different team. Shooting from beyond the arc was bad, sloppy turnovers, and poor defense, BUT hopefully this team will be back at this stage again next year.

Glory Days in Alexandria wouldn’t let Natasha Cloud’s family watch her in the WNBA Finals

The article in the Washington Post can be read in its entirety here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/dc-sports-bog/wp/2018/09/11/glory-days-apologizes-to-natasha-cloud-for-not-putting-mystics-game-on-tv/?utm_term=.a66c5c488f7b

Glory Days tend to have enough TV’s to support a multitude of events. Apparently not:

 “My family came to watch the game. They were super excited on Sunday afternoon before any football game really started. This place is really cool. They have a bunch of screens. They have at the table where you can turn on the volume for what specific TV you want. So my family literally asked for the smallest television to be turned on to a WNBA game, and the manager on spot basically laughed in their face.”-Natasha Cloud

I get it, its NFL Sunday, a lot of games were going down to the wire. But you are telling me not ONE television could have been tuned to the WNBA Finals for a player’s frigging FAMILY??

Yikes.
