How in hell did our WNBA-champion Phoenix Mercury go 0-fer-May? And how bout that sparkling 3-6 record they carried into mid-June? Well, thereve been three significant changes since last years campaign, and thats a ton for any pro-basketball team, no matter the gender. But since someone specific must be blamed were American sports fans; thats what we do go ahead and pick your poison: 1) the loss of Penny Taylor; 2) the transition to new head coach Corey Gaines, who replaced fast-break high priest Paul Westhead; 3) Diana Taurasis selection to the U.S. Womens Olympic Basketball Team.
On the other hand, we could just say thank God we dont live in Atlanta and enjoy the game against the New York Liberty.
