    My apologies, I couldn't find the running WNBA thread.

    A friend texted me last night - his daughter plays high school basketball, and his wife was going around last week asking for donations for a silent auction. The Sparks donated ten tickets to tonight's game.

    Tonight's game is the WNBA finals.

    Apparently not a high demand.

    If the tix are free and they are showing Dodgers Cubs on the jumbotron think I'd go.

    Seriously, lower the baskets to 9 feet, shorten the court to 75 feet, make the 3-point line 17'9.......and I still wouldn't watch.

    Took the family to a game not too long ago. Good way to spend a few hours cheaply and without crowds of douchebags to deal with.

    I'll gladly do it with my kids as many times as they want.

    My friend says the tickets went wanting.

    This is a silent auction for a high school girls basketball team.

    The potential bidders are taking the silence literally.

    Won tickets to a suite one time in Phoenix. It was an easy and kind of cool way to take the whole family to a game and get a suite experience. It wasn't really stocked or staffed like an NBA game would have been, but it was a nice chance to see what something like that was about with no cost to us!

    I wonder if they wouldn't be better off scrapping the playoffs in favor of a three-day tournament. Take the best eight (or maybe six) teams and play single elimination at a different site each year.

    I just went to wiki - the first season, the Finals were a one game championship, played on August 30.
