Bitter Tweet

For those of us expecting a dramatic turnaround from the Phoenix Suns this year, things couldn't have turned out worse. In retrospect, it shouldn’t have been a surprise, because our star player seemed more interested in updating his Twitter than winning games. Go figure.

All hope is not lost for Phoenix basketball fans, though, because Diana Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury are back, though their jerseys have been hijacked by the corporate sponsor LifeLock. On Saturday, June 6, the team takes on the San Antonio Silver Stars in its regular-season home opener at US Airways Center. While the champs of two years ago may be ladies, we can promise that they’ll show a lot more hustle than a certain someone whose name rhymes with “hack.”
