1.jpg Wendy is great about signing stuff before the game. Note the cop ready to tackle the fan in case she's some kind of nut!

15.jpg Foul!

24.jpg I'm still not sure why they allow shooters to sweep a defender's arms out of the way of a shot. It seems like that should be an offensive foul.

26.jpg Here's the worst flop of the season. Zolman is not set at all here...
Click to see 27.jpg
27.jpg ...but to "draw a foul", she squats down and carefully places her butt on the floor...
Click to see 28.jpg
28.jpg ...yeah, right!

44.jpg OK the second half. Now we're going to see some of that undefendable outside shooting that killed us the last time.

Click to see 46.jpg
46.jpg PeeWee driving past Sue was a major problem last time...
Click to see 47.jpg
47.jpg ...but not so much this time...
Click to see 48.jpg
48.jpg ...that shot is going nowhere.

Click to see 50.jpg
50.jpg Augh! Our defense is broken...
Click to see 51.jpg
51.jpg ...OK nevermind.
Click to see 52.jpg
52.jpg Now PeeWee is driving to the paint just like last time...
Click to see 53.jpg
53.jpg ...fortunately she passes to Chantelle...
Click to see 54.jpg
54.jpg
Click to see 55.jpg
55.jpg ...who clangs the shot. Things are going terrible for San Antonio.
Click to see 56.jpg
56.jpg The S.A. bench is totally frustrated. They can't hit anything.
Click to see 57.jpg
57.jpg
Click to see 58.jpg
58.jpg Now the Storm are getting aggressive on the guards since S.A.'s post offense isn't working.

Click to see 60.jpg
60.jpg Even though our outside defense was far from perfect...
Click to see 61.jpg
61.jpg ...it didn't make any difference.
Click to see 62.jpg
62.jpg Here's another strange shot...
Click to see 63.jpg
63.jpg ...that didn't go in.

66.jpg "So cold. So very cold." Yeah, I used that joke last season too.
Click to see 67.jpg
67.jpg Not the same happy team we saw last time.
Click to see 68.jpg
68.jpg Really aggressive boxing out, or more like boxing around.

74.jpg It looks like Dan Hughes has gone from chills to stomach cramps.

85.jpg Let's watch Cisti commit a series of fouls trying to defend Feenstra...
Click to see 86.jpg
86.jpg ...yes, these arms committed the foul.
Click to see 87.jpg
87.jpg
Click to see 88.jpg
88.jpg OK so far...
Click to see 89.jpg
89.jpg ...but obviously you can't do this.
Click to see 90.jpg
90.jpg Again Cisti grabs at Feenstra's arms. This is not going to work.
Click to see 91.jpg
91.jpg ...and again Cisti holds up her arms like she has no idea she just committed a foul.
