Attending an Indiana Fever (our Women’s NBA team) game has been on my Indy to-do list for a while now, so I was excited when the Fever hosted a group of local bloggers a few weeks ago for their game against the New York Liberty. We were put up in the awesome Legends suite, where we learned about the organization from a handful of Fever staff before watching the elite athletes battle it out.

Confession time: over the course of the night I talked and chatted and visited so much that I think I saw as much of these

as the game.

But! That’s prime evidence of what a great group of bloggers we have in Indy. I’m still amazed at the fact that people inside my computer can become people I know in real life. With all the awesomeness around me, like her and her and her and her, it’s easy to see how I was easily distracted away from the awesomeness on the court.

And! It gives me a PERFECT excuse to head back to another game, this time with my family. The reason a Fever game has been on my to-do list is because I want to take my kids, especially Eleanor. Last fall Andy and I attended a Naptown Roller Girls bout, and while talking about it the next day Eleanor asked, “it was GIRLS that played?” And instantly I realized that while we encourage Eleanor to be active, the sports we watch on TV—men’s NCAA basketball, NFL—are exclusively male. We’re lucky to live in a city with a WNBA team, a great resource for my daughter (and son) to learn that women can be just as athletic, competitive, and accomplished as men. So I’m sure you’ll see me courtside again this summer, either at a Family Fun Night (tickets for these Saturday games start at $13 and include a ticket, t-shirt, hot dog, chips and drink) or a Two for One game (two-for-one tickets for Tuesday/Thursday games). Who’s in with me? I promise to keep my attention off the nachos this time.

  1. Yeah, you are really lucky to have such a nice WNBA team like Indiana Fever. I think the team is a real source of inspiration for all young athlete.
