The Mystics and their dogs

The Washington Mystics are 20-12. If they win their final two regular-season games, they'd still theoretically have a chance to finish with the top record in the WNBA's Eastern Conference. They'd also finish with a .647 winning percentage, which would be the second-best of any Washington professional basketball team...

Alana Beard Raps

Alana Beard, by rights, should be one of the biggest blog superstars in D.C.: she's funny, accessible, smart, a legit superstar, and gives media members cool handshakes. But I gave up on Mystics coverage when I started chasing clicks like Gilbert chases 14-year old video gamers. Well, I haven't heard...

A WNBA Betting Nightmare

(AP Photo.) The last time I was in Vegas, I placed a legal, friendly, Ombudsman-taunting $10 wager on the Connecticut Sun to win the WNBA championship at 30-1 odds. I don't cover the WNBA, not really, and I figured getting a likely playoff team at 30-1 was sort of...

Mystics Winning in OT

I have no jokes here. This is serious. In their first nine seasons, the Washington Mystics played a total of 13 games that lasted beyond regulation, never more than three in one year. In the past two weeks--a span of just five games--the Mystics have ended regulation in a tie...

A Mystic Wedding, and a Mystic Gas Machine

Just another typical Mystics practice this afternoon. You know, some half-court drills, some shooting drills, some defensive drills, a post-game huddle, and a post-game announcement from rookie center Gillian Goring that she was going to get married. Like, today. "She was like I, 'just want to tell you all right...

Video of the Mystics Motown Bash

Events have forced me away from a computer for about five hours here, which was an awfully creepy feeling. I'm back now, but need some time to get going. In the meantime, here's video of the Mystics Motown Bash....

Mystics: What's Going On

The Mystics are off to a rotten start. A player retirement, a major trade, a coaching change and an 0-6 record is not how you diagram the first month of the season. But yesterday was the First Annual Washington Mystics Foundation Gala, a fund-raising bash featuring Sheila Johnson, Cedric the...

Cedric the Entertainer Discusses the Mystics

I'm planning on writing about this later, but the Mystics had their Motown-themed gala last night. It was easily the best Motown-themed WNBA gala I've ever attended. Littles, aka The Dude Abides , and I went to the event at the Fairmont Hotel (motto: "Yes, we can tell you don't...

The Mystics Channel Gilbert

This month's basketball drought has cost us our most bloggable D.C. athletes, and so I went to Mystics media day hopeful of finding the next straw chewer, the next face-feel-my-facer, the next "Hibachi" shouter. From a few cursory conversations, it quickly became clear that there were only two Mystics capable...

Mystics Get New Threads

So Comcast SportsyNet's Adam Littlefield and I went to this afternoon's Mystics draft party to watch the draft, and also to check out the team's new unis, and I wound up getting some fashion advice, which can be seen on Washington Post Live tomorrow. The fashion show portion of the...

Tape Delayed WNBA Draft Diary

Bill Simmons got nuthin on me. My dreams of live blogging the WNBA draft died with news that the watch party was on the lower, non-air-card-friendly portion of the ESPNZone. Also, I had to cut short my stay due to the fact that I had to go to Bethesda for...
