Washington Mystics owner Ted Leonsis wants fans to come out and support the team for the playoffs

I often hear from folks asking us to show our commitment to women's basketball. I am hopeful that people in our community see that we care deeply about the team and the league.

The more fans in the building the better the environment and the better the team seems to play. Thank you for caring.

Washington Mystics owner Ted Leonsis on his blog today. We here definitely believe that Ted has been very involved with the team and look forward to seeing it continue both in good times and bad.
