Lynx 86, Fever 76

September 10, 2008

What was supposed to be an easy night of work at my last WNBA game of the season turned into a busy evening as the Lynx lost Seimone Augustus to a head injury in the first quarter. So I spent much of the game running back and forth between the game and the concourse to try to catch a glimpse of what was going on with Augustus, and later first-round pick Candice Wiggins, who also was lost for the game in the first half with a sprained knee. 

Ultimately I wrote in the neighborhood of eight versions for two total stories, which made for a long night. Fortunately it appears that Augustus should be OK — I saw her walking under her own power as she left the building to get a CT scan. 

By the end of the night I guess I wrote a bit too much now that I see what the editors pared it down to, but too much is better than not enough I guess.
