22.jpg Oh no. Why did Sue back away from Hornbuckle. Did she expect someone to switch with her?

24.jpg Clearly off of Hornbuckle, yet rookie ref Marat Kogut (yes, look it up) makes the wrong call.

29.jpg This Marat guy was making Roy look good. In fact Roy did not make any of his usual "exact opposite" calls! I could hardly believe it!

41.jpg Great, they have an LCD monitor on the media desk so I can take a shot of how the game is going for future reference.

65.jpg Notice how they keep Braxton in the backcourt when the Shock shoots free throws to prevent a lob pass after a Storm rebound, like the one that won us the game against the Comets. Smart!

80.jpg I and about a dozen other people cheated after the Storm game and watched the end of the Majestics game as they beat the Oakland Banshees. We stood on a retaining wall.

81.jpg If I had remembered to bring my IWFL Sideline Pass, I could have walked right onto the field for free! Dammit!

82.jpg Fortunately there was a gap in the gate that I could stick my little basketball lens through.

83.jpg I wasn't stealing because rightfully I could have walked right in there.
