Brittney's The One!
Wasn't a big surprise, but my Houston homegirl was snapped up by the Phoenix Mercury with the opening pick of this year's draft. Another Houston homegirl in Texas A&M's Kelsey Bone also went in the first round at number five to the New York Liberty.
It was a draft class that contained Skylar Diggins (Tulsa Shock) Elena Delle Donne (Chicago Sky) and A'dia Mathes (LA Sparks) (boo, hiss still can't stand the Sparks) and should be fun to watch when the season starts May 24.
Assuming I get over my still smoldering pissivity over how my beloved Comets were screwed in 2008.
Hey WNBA President Laurel Richie, when the league decides to expand again, how about putting a franchise back in H-town?
But congrats Brittney and best of luck in your WNBA career. Hopefully I'll get to see you wearing the Team USA jersey next year during the FIBA World Championship for Women in Turkey.
