Storm PG Sue Bird exited her team’s locker rooms at the practice facility belting, “Where’s my escort?” officially kicking off Storm Media Day 2009. It was a little intimidating as a throng of players followed her, most new faces, all wearing their home white jerseys.
The players are at the various stations now, taking pictures with kids, doing spots for the jumbo screen inside KeyArena, and taking portraits, of course. They’ll eventually make their way to media for interviews.
Some changes are no food and no Seattle P-I print reporter. But there’s still a good group of us circling the press area, waiting for our turn. The team also has practice this evening, making it a full day that F Camille Little already griped about to her escort. Storm coach Brian Agler said he won’t have two-a-days this season, choosing instead to have one long practice.
