The District’s own

Alana Beard has been named to the 2006 WNBA All-Star Eastern Conference team.

Now whist everything I know about the Mystics can probably be written on a dime, I do know that Erica, over at Minneapolis MetBlogs is all about the WNBA, and thus I learn what I can from her.

Although 2005 saw our very own guard/forward selected as a reserve for the 2005 WNBA All-Star team Eastern Conference, 2006 sees her selected for the starting lineup for tonight’s game. Let’s hope the young sports star is ready for the challenge.

If you’re not luck enough to have scored tickets to the jam-packed event held in Madison Square Garden, be sure to grab a frosty bevvy at your favourite sports bar and settle in for the 7 p.m. tip-off on ESPN.

    Alana Beard is frickin’ amazing and has been instrumental in (somewhat) turning around what was a mediocre Mystics team.

    The Mystics attendance has been hurt a little by the arrival of the Capitals, but they still consistently have great attendance as WNBA teams go.

    Being an avid Boston fan, I’ve not yet attended anything other than a United game here in D.C., there’s always the next game/season, right?
