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.
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.
