The WNBA Loses to Sesame Street

871-sesame-street-liveDuring the NBA playoffs the Denver Nuggets and the WWE had a standoff over the double-booking of the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets won out and held their playoff game.

Clearly the efforts to make the WNBA a worthwhile sports league have been a wasted effort.

The Atlanta Dream (stupid name) are on the verge of a playoff spot, with 6 games left to play they feature a robust 15-13 record. That might be a problem though. You see, “Sesame Street Live!” has booked the Phillips Arena and NO ONE puts Oscar in the corner.

Even if the Dream manage to make the playoffs, they won’t have access to their home arena, with the Muppets in place for 8 shows from September 17-20. Possible options for the Dream include holding games in Gwinnet, GA or at Georgia Tech, which is exactly what you would expect from a “major” sport league’s playoffs.

The WNBA, where felt-covered puppets are more popular and important!

Maybe the WNBA should sign up Big Bird whose sex has never really been determined, you can’t teach height after all…
