I seek your opinions, your thoughts, your insights about something I have been wondering about since the day I began covering both the UConn women and the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun four years ago.
I certainly can feel the enthusiasm my constituency has for the Huskies. I read your mail, I hear your voices, I monitor the debates you have on the Boneyard.
What I want to know, what I need to know, is whether your affection and interest in the players transfers once they become professionals.
What I mean is, are you as interested in what Tina Charles, Renee Montgomery, Kalana Greene, Asjha Jones and Jess Moore are doing with the Sun as you were when they played for Geno?
Are you as tuned into Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Charde Houston, Ketia Swanier and Svetlana Abrosimova now as you were when they were at UConn?
I’d like to know. I think the Connecticut Sun would like to know. I am certain the WNBA wants to know. Maybe even UConn cares. That I don’t know.
Please let me hear you.
