Happy Memorial Day! Random stuff…

In the most recent episode of “ET’s Video Home,” Big Syl makes a guest appearance as she and Erin take us on a tour of Allstate Arena, MTV Cribs style. But first, ET’s signature line…

“Missing my show, like not having a 4-sided TV in your house, is unacceptable.”

LoL! Their crib has 16 kitchens, an 18000-seat theater and a 1,364,000-inch 4-sided TV!

Ok, so I’ve been seeing some stuff about this on twitter…

It looks like Big Syl is holding an event at Berry Chill (@YogiJones on twitter) on Wednesday, June 2nd at 6pm. Epiphanny Prince is going to be there too. More information is available here

In support of Sylvia Fowles of the Chicago Sky WNBA’s active search for a cure for childhood epilepsy, Sylvia and Ephiphanny Prince will be serving your favorite yogurt combos at our 635 N. State St. location on Wednesday, June 2nd 2010 from 6-7pm. All proceeds during this event will be donated to Sylvia’s Foundation for CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy). In addition to this, Sylvia and Ephiphanny will also be giving away tickets to the next home game! Woo!

Dang, Big Syl’s been playing here for going on 3 years and I didn’t know that she (a) had a foundation and (b) was involved with childhood epilepsy. That’s really cool. I’m intrigued by the whole thing and I’d love to go. Not to mention, this whole Berry Chill “yogurt couture” sounds interesting. But if I can’t make it…

For those of you who can’t be here with us, we will be streaming live from Berry Chill! Just head over to Ustream to watch us on Wednesday, June 2nd 2010 at 6pm. We’ll also be taking questions via Twitter and the chatbox!

Great idea! I’ll definitely be tuning in!

A few days ago, I posted a video in which Abi Olajuwon mentioned that she had a blog in the Chicago Tribune. Well, here’s the first entry, written when the Sky were still 0-4…

Every game we have played, we have learned more about ourselves as a team. It is hard to lose, but this will make us appreciate the success we will have more as the journey continues throughout the season. I am a competitor and I can’t say that it doesn’t hurt when we lose, but I thank God everyday that I get to be here on this team and learn from such amazing players.

Do not doubt us Chicago, there might be a little bit of turbulence in the Sky, but we will make it to our final destination, as a FAMILY.

Nice blog. Looking forward to future posts.

This article is a few weeks old, but its great: W.N.B.A.’s Mistie Bass Learns Lessons in Bahrain

I traveled to Bahrain, a small island country east of Saudi Arabia, to watch my fiancé, O’neal Mims III, finish his basketball season last fall. At his games, I was usually the only woman in the arena. Within 48 hours of my arrival, Muhammad al-Khalifah, a relative of the king, asked me to coach his Muharraq women’s basketball team.

Although I had not spent much time in Bahrain, I knew its culture was conservative, especially regarding women. In public, many wear long, dark robes and head scarves. I could not believe that they were allowed to play sports.

My curiosity piqued, I accepted my first coaching offer and returned to Bahrain in February. This was the first full season for the eight-team women’s league. I was humbled and honored to be a part of history.

Great read!
