Last month President Barack Obama welcomed the 2010 WNBA Champions the Seattle Storm to the White House.
President Obama remarked that the WNBA is “the most successful women’s sports league in the world. Attendance is up. Ratings are up! And basketball is now the most popular sport for girls in the nation…When the team’s future in Seattle was uncertain, four female season ticket holders joined forces to become co-owners. [And] they are the first all female ownership group in history to win a championship…True teamwork and unselfish play brought at WNBA Championship to Seattle!”
Every professional athlete and owner dreams of the day when their team will be honored at the White House, and this season the Storm’s dream came true! In case you missed it…here’s video from the ceremony. Enjoy!
Good Night Sports Fans,
