Pro basketball comes to Flushing

The New York Liberty will make professional basketball history tonight when the team plays the WNBA's first regular-season outdoor game at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the home of tennis' U.S. Open.

In addition to making professional basketball history, the Liberty Outdoor Classic will be the first non-tennis sporting event to take place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens, which is the largest public outdoor tennis facility in the world.

Tickets start at $10.

You've been busy. I like this Liberty article, cool stuff. Might have to grift/lift it!

Yes, I thought this was a pretty cool event, which got lost in the hype over the Shea concerts last night. The Menudo portion of the lineup I could do without, though. They're just not the same without Ricky Martin (J/K!) :)

Too bad for Rosie O'Donnell and Ellen DeGeneres' limo drivers. They have to drive them all the way out to Queens in order to watch the ladies.....I mean the game!
