I’m not a sports reporter, but I played one on TV. Really. For five seasons, I was in the background on Friday Night Lights, on the field at every game the Dillon Panthers or East Dillon Lions played. I covered five years of fake football. See:
So when the Dallas Wings — our new WNBA team that has its first home game on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 p.m. — invited me to media day, I figured it sounded like fun. Fun? I had a blast.
I’m already such a fan that I’ll be at tomorrow’s home opener. I’m even dragging Brian. I don’t think he’s ever been to a basketball game, but I told him to expect lots of home runs and touchdowns.
So far, the Wings are doing great. Although they lost both preseason games, they’re 2-1 on the season before even playing a home game.
The Wings play in Arlington on the UTA campus. From Dallas, take I-30 to Center Street in Arlington (between Cooper and Collins). Go several miles south and park in the high rise garage before College Park Center, 600 S. Center St., the 6,000 seat arena where the Wings play.
