....to see The Storm's website post an article featuring Ann Wauters' baby, and mentioning her daughter born to her partner as well as her own baby. Is that a precedent of some sort, or has that happened before with gay moms in the league?

it doesn't hurt that one of the main owners is in a long-term relationship with a partner who is also part owner, and the c.o.o is an out and proud lesbian with a partner and toddler of their own. it's about families...all kinds. Smile

....and when will the Dot.Com site realize that THIS kind of press will not destroy Seattle's fan base, bring ruinous calamity, etc., etc., so they, too, can tell about more than Tina Thompson's "baby"??? Rolling Eyes

the honoring of mother's tomorrow by one of our sponsor's will include the introduction of both tt, ann and i would imagine kb, too.

Then they'll come back to Seattle for the Storm's preseason game on Sunday (2 p.m., ), when Thompson and the Storm's other mom - center Ann Wauters - will be honored as part of BECU's recognition of mothers.

for a story about ann and her children:

The Storm are the ideal model of how a WNBA franchise should be run. A few others are getting there, but most other teams should learn from the Storm.
