Shhhhh. Fans supporting Atlanta’s own WNBA franchise Atlanta Dream don’t currently wish to be awakened.
In the team’s third season, the Dream is suddenly the team to beat as they advanced Sunday night to skillfully snuff the torch of the New York Liberty 81 to 75 in Madison Square Garden in Game One of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Number four Dream applied pressure to the second-seeded Liberty hometown favorites and ended up dominating the board while effectively ruining the Liberty’s impressive 11-game winning streak.
Game Two against the Liberty is tonight at Philips Arena.
Fans planning on going to the game can score seats for just $5 and $10 if you type in the special “dream” code when you order online via Ticketmaster.
If the Dream can manage to get past the Liberty tonight, they’ll take on the Seattle Storm in the finals.
Yes, you read that the right: the finals.
Obviously, with the challenges the Dream has endured this season, most fans never would have suspected they would be in the stands still rooting this week.
And apparently neither did the folks at Philips Arena, who are now nervously eyeing their schedule.
If the Dream continues to advance, Philips may need to juggle a WNBA game and its previously booked family show, “Sesame Street Live: 123 Imagine.”
Personally, Intel would rather enjoy seeing a mash up of the two. But only if Big Bird plays center. . .
