Further Signs of Life

For a long time now, many skeptics have been saying that the WNBA is on its last leg nearing death. Crowds in many cities are waning, and some were saying that this lack of public interest is an indication that the WNBA would soon be closing its doors.

Developments yesterday have proven this theory wrong.

The new and official WNBA franchise for Chicago, which was awarded to the city last February, announced its team name and team colors. After much thought, and looking at such names as the Loopsters (named after Chicago’s business district) and the Deep Dish (named after Chicago’s most famous pizza), the name Chicago Sky was chosen, with team colors being sky blue and yellow.

Congrats to those responsible for the team in Chicago and long live one of the best professional women’s sports leagues around.
