Totally ignorant about women's basketball until 1997 (not sure where I was during the Atlanta games - probably in grad school or stage managing (and no cable). A friend dragged me to the Garden in '97 and paid for my ticket to the NY Liberty. I feel good and hard. Couple of years of wondering "where do these folks come from?" got me a writing gig - first an unpaid column, then paid articles for Women's Basketball Magazine. First piece I wrote for them was on Shea Ralph. Didn't want to be an uniformed idiot, so I researched the hell out of her - which led me to the Boneyard. Then I realized I could get CPTV in Queens via my rabbit ears. Returning home at night was agony, hoping I'd gotten just the right angle and tinfoil combo. I can't tell you how many snowy transmissions I watched. Life was so amazing when CPTV started streaming!
