Some Candace Parker with a side of other news

Those of us on twitter already knew Shelden Williams flew to Russia to see wife Candace Parker and daughter Lailaa last weekend, during NBA All-Star weekend. But I didn’t know that it caused him to get fined for missing a practice.

Parker has posted two pictures on twitter today: one showing that Russia isn’t a “no running water” country after all, and the other showing off her cooking skills with a bad pun. But Parker’s corniness is one of the reasons I like her.

Great piece on Kelsey Griffin, and all she’s gone through to get to this amazing year at Nebraska.

Speaking of battles, James Madison University’s Dawn Evans is fighting kidney disease, but playing on. Amazing, and inspirational.
