This is from the Straight from the Messenger blog, the official Indiana Fever blog:
With an extra day of travel built in between games at Detroit and Atlanta, the Fever did not practice on Saturday -- a rare opportunity to sleep in before a 1:30 flight. A few players including Tammy Sutton-Brown underwent some morning treatments with trainer Ruth Helland, and after a 4 p.m. arrival in Hot-lanta, there was about an hour of light weights and some cardio, mostly for conditioning and maintenance. Players went their own directions on Saturday evening, with some coaches and staff, including myself and Chris Denari, attending the Atlanta Braves baseball game. Khadijah Whittington was the only player to join the baseball contingent.
The Nationals beat the Braves 8-5 in 10 innings. I don't know if that's a good omen for us (the Fever was robbed of entertainment) or a bad omen (the Atlanta team lost). All I konw is I hope that the Liberty knocks the Sky out of the playoffs. Tipoff is at 1 pm.
I hope the Lions kept the Fever up all night partying and that the Fever come into Philips exhausted. Just sayin'.
