I would support this forum.

Thanks SCF -
Thought there might be a few closet Comet fans out there.

I'm in support too, I like the comets and cooper and crew...I watch them when they are on and they always pull outta can of whoop ass on anybody. I'm not a WNBA fan as a whole league (Some of the teams are truly terrible) but the Comets are from Houston and are leaps and bounds above the rest of those layup-bricking Starzz, Sting, and Shockers. I've watched for both of the years and wondered if I could be a WNBA fan if my home-team played like all the other teams"
- Missing layups, wide open layups
- Bricking 5 six foot jump shots in a row
- launching brick after brick three pointer, lunging the ball like it was a medicine-ball
But luckily the Comets are the exception, they are the envy of the league.

Can we get a Comets forum going for the people that are real 'fans of the game' and are not so gender-biased? (Moderators unnamed to protect their guilt.)
I've said for two seasons now - those of you not watching the Comets are missing out on a real treat. It's basketball the way it was intended to be played ... the only thing missing are the sky jams, for cryin' out loud!
- Wanna see how to run a fast break to perfection? Watch the Comets.
- Wanna see how to defeat the press? Watch the Comets.
- Wanna see a team with heart? Watch the Comets.
- Wanna see how to create your own shot? Watch the Comets.
- Wanna see how team defense is played? Watch the Comets.
We promise not to tell anyone.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I went to the home opener. It's nice to see a Houston basketball team dominate and blow out their opponents.

If only the Rockets could play as well.

I've been to a few Comets games - like, when the Mercury and Starzz (I'm still waiting for Frank Layden to return to his old self - but I guess his antics are 15 years and 200 pounds ago) are in town, the home openers (all 3 - went to 2 just to get the rings) and the 3 Finals games played in Compaq Center. I still haven't been able to get into a game, and I've tried - I've tried hard. But, as a female that will soon be joining the media, I have to admit that I'll probably have to watch more of the WNBA than I'd like. It's pretty easy to break into the NBA (not that that's going to be a problem - getting a job in SLC is a piece of cake)through the WNBA, but can I stand to look at that 7'2" Margo Dydek for a few seasons? I don't know about that....
I don't know what it is, but I haven't been able to actually get to the point that I really care who wins or loses. Even at the Finals games, I just couldn't get into it. I spent more time chasing David Robinson (if Yinka Dare was there, I probably would have gone after him, too - that's how bored I was) than cheering for the team. I do like Cynthia - I knew I liked her before they even started to play (she, along with the rest of the team for one game, sat by me during the 1997 WCF - her attitude told me that she was going to be something special on the court). But, I can't seem to get into the game - I take more naps at a WNBA game than I do during a Clippers/Grizzlies game. Is there some special trick to getting into the game? If someone knows of something, please, do share it with me. I would be very appreciative (the players probably would be, too - I can't imagine they like to see a person fast asleep in the middle of the first half).
I think it's the shot clock....what's up with the 30 seconds thing? During the 5-10 minutes that I am awake, I'm screaming to shoot the ball with about 9 seconds left on the clock....people around me give me very odd looks. I thought the Cleveland Cavaliers offense was slow, but the WNBA takes the cake on slow offense (even though they are averaging close to the same scores the NBA averaged last season). I still think it may be possible to leave the arena, go negotiate terms on a car purchase, go to dinner at Tony's, shop at Neiman Marcus - the Town and Country store - and get back to the game and the score will not have changed.
I'm not knocking the WNBA (ok, maybe I am just a little - I've been listening to Jim Rome just a little too much), but I really can't get into it and would welcome tips that could help me.
Anyone else got a Malone MVP hat?
