Besides the amazing talent, the fans are the coolest thing about the WNBA. Over the years I have had the pleasure of meeting several different fans and it is great to see that base continue to grow. I think the stories of how those fans came to enjoy the WNBA are important. I am excited to share one of the first. The man mentioned in the previous post regarding WNBA fan etiquette was kind enough to share his story of how he became a fan of the WNBA and how he became a season ticket holder for the Dallas Wings. I am open to hearing stories from fans of all teams. Feel free to DM me @WNBALove on the Twitter @WNBA_Love on Instagram or email me at WNBALove@gmail.com. Please enjoy this WNBALove Story from Mr. Kevin Lee and give him a follow @AgentDouble896 on Twitter.
“I was introduced to the WNBA during the late 90s when I inadvertently turned onto ESPN and saw the Houston Comets play and soundly defeat their opponent (1998 to be exact). I was so ingrained into the Lady Vols that the WNBA was an afterthought for about 10 years. I re-familiarized myself with the WNBA when my favorite NCAAW player (Candace Parker) was drafted by the LA Sparks. While I followed the 2016 Sparks WNBA Championship season faithfully, it wasn’t until 2018 that I attended my first WNBA game. After Cambage scored 53, I said I had to attend a game. On August 8, 2018 I sat in the College Park Center stands to watch the Sun beat the Wings. Despite the loss, I was impressed with the competitive nature the Wings displayed. Azura Stevens & Theresa Plaisance (coming off injury) really stood out aside from Liz’s 29 point performance. The 2019 season is the first season I have been a WNBA season ticket holder, and I plan to continue membership. It’s very affordable, family-friendly entertainment. The players engage with the fans so well, and it’s time society does more to support womens’ voices and place in making this world better. As a man who was raised by women only (my father was absent during my childhood), I wholeheartedly respect the value women have in our society. If we can respect nothing else, the truth is without someone’s daughter carrying us for a pregnancy term none of us would be here.”
