Tulsa Shock player Plenette Pierson wants the world to know that she’s simply misunderstood in her blog. Hey, it’s even in her header:
“I’m known as a WNBA player, WNBA two-time champion, WNBA’s inaugural Sixth Woman of the Year, but I’m perceived to be a thug and the Queen of the Detroit’s ‘Bad Girl’ persona. Most people have no idea; simply stated: I’m misunderstood.“
In her latest blog entry, Pierson writes about the troubles in getting from America from Israel:
On Thursday, March 18th I was given permission to leave Israel and go home (jumps up and down excited)! Here’s where all the problems start, I call US Airways to change my flight they inform me that if I want to leave on Friday, March 19th the change fee would be $800(difference in the price of the ticket) plus $250(change fee), I had to sit back and think how bad did I really want to leave Israel! I decided that I would check out my other options, well my other options were slim pickings because the next time that I could fly on that airlines was on March 27th and I had to pay $400(difference in the price of the ticket) plus $250(change fee), decisions decisions! I opted out out of both those options and just decided to purchase a whole new ticket and leave when I wanted. So when all my plans were finalized, my roommates threw me a going away party at our apartment and quite a few people showed up! It was the nicest thing that has happened to me by my teammates overseas. I had a blast and was sad to leave those guys! We will meet again soon!!
I hope that Pierson blogs as frequently as she’s able. If there’s any doubt that Pierson would go to Tulsa, it seems to be dispelled in her blog.
