Detroit Shrugged. WNBA Shock Moving From Detroit to Tulsa

Things just seem to get worse and worse for Michigan.

via WNBA’s Detroit Shock reportedly moving to Tulsa – ESPN.

The Shock had a lot of success on the court, but not in the stands in a state with four major professional teams along with Michigan and Michigan State athletics.

In the 2003 WNBA Finals, Detroit did draw 22,076 fans — setting a record for the largest crowd to watch a women’s professional basketball game — but most games were sparsely attended with a curtain covering up the upper level of The Palace of Auburn Hills.

On a somewhat related note, while at Charlotte Airport, I noticed that Terminal 4 had movie posters of all movies filmed in North Carolina. Alongside such classics as Taledega Nights, one of the posters was of a classic, Juwanna Man, that dealt with Woman’s Basketball. I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about the WNBA, and probably will never blog about them, so there you go.

Who is Juwanna Man?
