MN Lynx game WNBA(Womans National Basketball Association)

I had never been to a Women's basketball game before, especially a NBA Women's game. I had the opportunity to attend a WNBA game through OnetoOne Network. Our team for Minnesota is the MN Lynx, for Women. My family and I went to the game on July 28th, 2009. The Lynx were playing against the Los Angeles Sparks.

It was an exciting game! The Lynx had a bit of a rough start to their game, but they soon "got their game on." It was fun seeing all the fun moves and fancy passes the girls did with the ball.
During the first quarter, Joe Schwei (team contact) came with goody bags for our kids! My kids loved their care packages! Inside the bag was a t-shirt, water bottle, personal photo of one of the Lynx gals, bookmark, poster, headband, and a bandanna. It was a generous gift for my kids, and they loved the treasures. Now we can "advertise" for the Lynx.
A few times during the "time-outs, or half-time" there were opportunities for participation from the crowds. The Lynx had basketball shoot-offs: one that included a trip to New York, and one that won other prizes. During half-time, the mascot: Prawl, did a toss up with t-shirts to those who could catch them. It is fun how the team and the mascot engage the fans.

The Minnesota Lynx team is a great group of women! It was fun to watch those gals in action! They are hard working, and aggressive on the court. I really thought that they sported great team work and sportsmanship.
We had great seats for the game, too! We sat in the second section up from the floor level. We had a great view, and could really enjoy the game. Madelyn loved the mascot the best. She really wanted to hug him and say hi, but he wasn't close enough to him. The game ended with the Sparks barely beating the Lynx. It was a very close game in the end, and I am glad we were able to attend this fun game! Thank you OnetoOne network and the MN Lynx for letting us help with this blogging opportunity.
