A Dyke About Town: Storm vs. Sun game thrilling

by Mercy Moosemuzzle
SGN Contributing Writer

Seattle Storm vs. Connecticut Sun
Mercy and Cuteness joined their friends Jousts, Consistency, and Levity to enjoy the August 5 Storm vs. Sun game. Svetlana Abrosimova, who has left the team, appeared to receive her championship ring.

Cuteness said, 'Bossanova [her nickname for Abrosimova] sure is hot. She's looking good. I miss her a lot. I can tell the rest of the fans do, too.'

Jousts said, 'Maybe Lauren Jackson won't be out as long as we thought.'

Jennifer Hopper's moving voice served the national anthem well.

It was Women of Inspiration night, which honored Grethe Cammermeyer and others. An interview with Margaret Witt was also aired, as well as footage of the team meeting President Obama.

The Storm dominated the game until eight minutes into the third quarter. The Sun closed the gap and took the lead 79-78 in the last 20 seconds of play. Sue Bird shot a two-pointer to win. Cuteness said, 'They don't give up until the last second.'

Cuteness said, 'The officiating was crappy.'

Consistency said, 'The Storm takes it responsibly. They object, then let it go. I love seeing powerful women. They are good role models.'

Levity said, 'I like to root for a winning team.'

The Tempest
Mercy and Cuteness enjoyed GreenStage's production of The Tempest. Mercy has seen the Shakespeare in the Park group in different parks over the years. This is the first time she as seen them in Magnuson. She was pleasantly surprised by the turnout, which was bigger there than elsewhere. Michael Blum's direction had some nice updating. Cuteness thought Gina Marie Russell projected well as Ariel, overcoming the difficulties of the outdoor venue.

Ken Holmes was strong as Prospero. Alyssa Kay and Matthew Fulbright were attractive as Miranda and Ferdinand. Daniel Wood did some fun improvisation as Stephano. Don MacEllis ad-libbed nicely as Caliban when he said, 'Don't sic the dogs on me!' after a dog came out of the audience at him.

John Mayall
Mercy and Cuteness are looking forward to seeing John Mayall at Jazz Alley. He will be there August 15-17. Band members joining Mayall are Greg Rzab (bass), Jay Davenport (drums), and Rocky Athas (guitar). Mayall is a pioneering English blues singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His musical career spans over 50 years. He founded John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. As a gifted talent scout, he has been influential in the careers of many instrumentalists, including Eric Clapton and Coco Montoya. He earned the OBE.
