Game 1 deja vu heart attack

Great photo gallery of Seattle-Atlanta game 1 here, starting with Sue Bird’s (deja vu) winning shot. Look at all those fans. And they stand up, too. Panoramic view. (Is my envy too obvious?)

Here’s the view of that game-winning shot from the other side, along with the Seattle Times’ story. My favorite quote:

“It’s situations I was put in at a very early age,” said Bird, whose only celebration was thrusting her fists in the air after McCougtry missed. “You get more confident the more you do things. At this point in my career, it’s something I really enjoy.”

There’s no substitute for experience, is there?

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s take.

I can’t express how impressed I am with the Dream, and Angel McCoughtry.

Hopefully this finals series will be as exciting, if not more, than last year’s. And hopefully scullyfu will give us a game report.
