    It didn't look for the USA when I had to switch to watching the UT FB game. Glad they pulled it out.


    Really enjoyed her game while she was in Washington and hoped to see her in person at SA. Hoping she makes the USA team.

    huh, still can't embed tweets. Looks like everyone else is on track, though. Good to see. :hookem2:

    Have you tried copying the tweet instead of imbed?

    I did on the one above. Before I was told how to embed tweets, the site would not let me include the tweeter. So I did not copy that part above. I will try including that info again next time I copy a tweet. Otherwise, I will just give credit to whoever posted/reposted the tweet.

    Maybe I misunderstood you. I did copy the link to the tweet as shown on the options on Twitter on a VB post and it seems to work.

    Glad to see EDD and Kelsey Plum make the team. I was surprised to see EDD playing instead of taking time of to heal. It is heavy on ex UConn players. Really can't argue with Bird or Taurasi. The others, depends on who is available. I have to figure that this tournament and the next Olympics are the last hurrah for Bird and Taurasi, leaving at least two spots open that are not automatically filled. Looking for Ariel to make a run for one of the spots for the 2022 World Games and 2024 Olympic rosters. :hookem2:
