I guess they’re not having the WNBA draft the day after the NCAA finals anymore. Wonder why.
But CP is going to host a lunch for fans on draft day, Thursday, April 9 in Los Angeles. Here’s the email I got earlier tonight:
Join 2008 #1 draft pick, Rookie of the Year and MVP Candace Parker at ESPN Zone as she watches the Los Angeles Sparks pick their newest members of the team during the 2009 WNBA Draft on ESPN. Enjoy lunch, mingle with Candace Parker and hear from head coach Michael Cooper and General Manager Penny Toler as they give you an exclusive behind the scenes talk (via webcam) after each pick.
1011 S. Figueroa St
Los Angeles, CA 90015
Thursday, April 9
11:30 AM – 2:30 PM
All MVPs attending with a REFERRAL will receive an autograph coupon to Opening Night post-game team autograph session

I don’t know if I’m going yet. I’d like to, but I don’t know if I can handle the sight of a nine months pregnant CP. I’ll see.
