From the WNBA website:
NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2009 - WNBA All-Star 2009 will take place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., this summer, league President Donna Orender announced today. The game will be nationally televised on ABC on Sat., July 25, at 3:30 p.m. ET. This marks the second time that the WNBA All-Star Game will be played at Mohegan Sun, which also hosted the 2005 All-Star festivities.
Very cool. Given the dire financial situation that all sports are facing and the loss of two roster spots for each team, there was some question about if an All-Star game would even be played. Now, we know it will.
Hmm...my wife likes to gamble on the penny slots...I wonder...?
