Penny was a big fan of the W in its early days.

I will never forget watching a Sparks game many years ago (13?) back when LiveAccess didn't air commercials. Instead you just continued camera and sound from the arena. And at this Sparks game, Penny Marshall was spending the time-out eating big handfuls of french fries. And the commentating team, not realizing they were being beamed out via LiveAccess, spent the commercial making fun of her cramming those french fries down.

I like to think she would have laughed.

A friend and I had the pleasure of meeting her at a Sparks game in 99. She was so friendly and down to earth and she had so much passion and love for the WNBA. She will be missed.
