Lynx come home to a Champ’s welcome

The WNBA Champion Minnesota Lynx came home to a packed airport today:

The fans stretched so deep that they were blocking off the route to baggage claim. They waited patiently at the bottom of a staircase — sometimes spontaneously breakout out in “Let’s Go Lynx” chants and then burst into loud cheers when players walked down.

The Lynx had fun celebrating with fans:

Lynx players allowed other passengers to exit the airplane before they finally emerged in the terminal with Augustus holding the championship trophy. Moments later, players stood atop a flight of stairs in stunned silence as applause boomed from the fans gathered below.

The Championship parade and celebration will be Monday.

Cool bonus: The NBA’s Kevin Durant says fiancee/WNBA Champ Monica Wright is the better basketball player.


  1. 'Twas meant tongue-in-cheek, Ms. Sue. (Thought the "Methinks" was the give-away.)
    I also had thought I'd tried to softened some prior criticism of CP in that manner here before.

    It certainly wasn't meant to slight Wright — for the record, I think she was jobbed out of recognition as the Top Reserve in the league.
