You Go, Girl(s)!

Betty Lennox of the Seattle Storm.
Betty Lennox carried the Storm (and the ball) on Sunday.

Say what you will about the quality of the WNBA, but the Storm did two things on Sunday that our beloved Sonics haven't done in ages: sell out the Key, and win a meaningful game:
SEATTLE, Oct. 10 (Ticker) -- Betty Lennox won her shootout with Nykesha Sales and extended the WNBA Finals to a decisive game.

Lennox scored 27 points as the Seattle Storm survived a record-setting performance by Sales and held on for a 67-65 victory over the Connecticut Sun that evened the WNBA Finals at one game each.

Read the rest here.
I know my two colleagues have been dissing The Storm, but if they win their next game, Seattle will have it's first sports championship since 1979. And that, surely, is worth raising The Goblet of Rock.
