When I suggested great places that the Dream might play, it looks like I forgot about one of them...I found this message on a women's basketball board and when I read it, I was flabbergasted.
At the game last night I spoke to a person deep within the DFO who noted that if we make it to the playoffs there is a conflict with some of the playoff dates and the availability of Phillips Arena. Indeed if you look at the Phillips calendar events are scheduled for some of the dates.
The real surprise was an alternate site being considered....Knoxville. Was that Pat's price for bringing 11K to the game on Sunday?
That's a friggin long hike for a game. Don't know if I could see it, but I'm sure that someone would probably fill my seat.
UPDATE: potential clashes of events at Philips Arena with WNBA Schedule
