New York Liberty Defeat the Detroit Shock. We Cheer

Friday night we received some free tickets to the first game of the Eastern Conference WNBA finals at Madison Square Garden.

Despite a friend of mine attesting that watching WNBA is "like watching paint dry," the Liberty mounted an exciting comeback in the fourth quarter and upset the conference leaders from Detroit (coached by Bill Laimbeer, which inspired older fans in the crowd to truly represent the Garden).

Shayna said it best "This is the most I've ever cheered in a game I wasn't playing". Her friend Max and his father, Jonathan joined us for the festivities. Our seats were up in the 300 section of the Garden, but we still enjoyed the event. Thanks to Ronny at Park Slope Day Camp for getting us the tickets!

The whole recap of the game can be viewed here.

Here's a "New York Minute" as the 3rd period ended:

And the final moments of the game. Try and hear Shayna yelling "That's my girl!" when her favorite Liberty Erin Thorne sinks some key free throws that seal the victory:
