Fever's Comedians speak up at Practice
KENNEWICK, Wash. - As Saturday's home-opener approaches, the Fever were keeping it loose on Thursday in practice. New center Frank McCray had his teammates cracking up with his not-so-graceful Lambeau Leap. McCray also danced around, all excited about playing in front of the home crowd Saturday against Bakersfield.
"I'm ready for the game, my first one. Want my first game to be a 'W.' We want the fans here. Come make some noise. We got to win."
Coach Tony Wells got some laughs as well on Thursday, recalling his days for a player on the short-lived Miami Hooters AFL team in the early 90's.
"They used to come out and have the big hooters owl, the inflatable," Wells recalled. "There was somebody in there. So we used to run out and tackle the owl. Just hammer it it. We then found out it was a girl inside. We never knew. We used to knock her to 'you know what.' All the sudden she pulled off the hooters owl and it was like 'Ooh, theres, a girl in there!' It was pretty funny. She was pretty hot too."
Saturday's kickoff is at 5:15 p.m. at the Toyota Center in Kennewick. The game is broadcast on KNDU and KNDO beginning at 5:00.
