We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

I try not to make fun of the WNBA… ---

For several reasons. Not the least of which is the fact that I have been schooled to the hoop by my friend Mary Tebbs.

The WNBA is in the midst of its 2009 Finals between Phoenix and Indiana. One problem is that they are still on this best of 5 series. Step it up and go best of 7 just like the men. It would give it more legitimacy, and you can’t tell me 1 or 2 more games is too much for the likes of Diana Taurasi.

My real problem? The jerseys. The Phoenix Mercury and LifeLock have struck a marketing deal for the first-ever branded jersey in WNBA or NBA history. Yes that’s right, the “Lifelock” logo is on the front of the jersey. Weak, unprofessional and well… NASCAR. Big mistake by the WNBA brain trusts. Next thing you know, the New York Liberty will be called the New York “P-Diddys.” It’s akin to the “Joe’s Deli” that most of us sported on the back of our little league T-shirt/uniforms.

WNBA Finals continue on ESPN 2, Thursday @7pm. Phoenix is up 1-0 in the series.
