    No problem. Just be warned I've paid for someone to come and remove the aluminum foil from your windows tomorrow.

    Genuine belly laugh there. I've been a private in someone else's army for a long time. ;) Gotta go finish the ironing now.

    By the way, those that have recorded the game, listen to Adam Amin say Kia Nurse won the tap! Yeah, he’s good... not!

    Topics discussed during the game:

    Sports psychology
    Warrior vs Trailblazers
    Elevator doors
    Ladders
    Eugene Oregon
    Love CD but too much about her rules
    Lots of HOF chatter while game is going on

    Who cares how many fouls Gabby has?

    So you want to hear my play by play? You'l be screaming for a triumvirate of Doris Burke, Lobo and Lawson after 10 secs.

    This crew of Adam Amin, Rebecca Lobo, and Kara Lawson should never do another UConn game. They chatter and gab too much.

    Unfortunately they are being unleashed on the West Coast next week for the UCLA @ Oregon game. I would much prefer the usual Pac 12 Network announcers.

    I was in heaven as the TV /over the air radio was in perfect sync. I didn't have to play with it at all. Wonderful play by play and appropriate level of color.

    Too bad the crew can't be Justine Ward on play by play, Justine Ward color commentating, and Justine Ward doing the sideline reporting.

    I didn't think it was quite as bad this time out. But Adam Amin really isn't good, even when he's not wandering off topic. He talks when he should be quiet, he's quiet when he should talk, and generally he just lacks a feel for the game and a cadence on the call. My dream-team for this year would have been O'Brien and Laswon in a two-person booth, and Lobo back in the studio with... wait for it... Landers. Yes, the same Andy Landers we were all pretty down on last year. Andy's been a lot better this season, and I now enjoy his work regardless of whom he's paired up with.

    Yes, his announcing is blurting out "Katie Lou Samuelson!" or "Asia Durr!" when they make a shot. About 30% of the time, he calls out the wrong name. He got Gabby and Kia confused all night.

    Actually, I thought they did a bit better than their last game. I'd give them a D instead of the D- they earned last game.

    Yes, I do and have for years, enjoyed Megan. Must also agree with you concerning Justine. Having retired and relocated to Maine, I do miss SNY. The feeds that ESPN3 get from SNY are acceptable but the timeouts and halftime analysis are all preempted by ESPN commercials and useless jargon. I actually turn to a different game during halftime. I constantly complain about the loss of seeing the games in person as well as the numbing cold here, in the winter. Many of my friends ask why I'm in Me. and I remind them that I enjoy married life. Can't have it all!!!!!!!! Life's a beach and then we drown. I do make it to all the FFs and look forward to that each year. I suspect our women will be there for the next foreseeable future seasons.

    I did like when Kara said everybody tries to play like the Warriors now but Uconn has been playing like that for years! It should be the Warriors are playing like Uconn!

    I agree that they stayed on point for most of the game. Andy Landers had a senior moment when callin Asia Durr Asia Wilson. Amin did state who made the foul just didn’t state how many.
