My mom has been following the WNBA finals from her computer, except for Sunday when she caught Game 3 at her gym. She’s been cheering for Phoenix and Diana Taurasi.
“I remember when Diana was a freshman at UConn,” she says. “Diana tossed a 3 and Geno Auriemma said she doesn’t know yet that she shouldn’t take those shots because her coach will yell at her.”
Actually I think Mom likes Diana because they’re both mavericks. Diana can be outrageous and over the top. She’s not someone you forget. Neither is my mom, on a smaller scale.
I’m glad Phoenix won. My mom will be in a good mood all weekend. And I can catch up on my sleep.
