    I was “working” volunteering at the information desk at Bradley this afternoon when I spotted a young lady coming down the escalator with a LYNX t-shirt. Sure enough, it was Miss Maya. I welcomed her back to CT and she said she was glad to be back. Lovely young lady. I will be watching the game on 805 CPTV Sports as I did the last two games. Jen was a great color commentator for the first one.
