Thoughts of a Mystics Fan from the 2011 Season: Is Ownership Truly Committed to the Mystics?

Sports are excellent training grounds to develop the next generation of young women leaders. I feel blessed to own a WNBA team like the Mystics, which has an incredible drive for competition, unmatched focus, and an appreciation of their fans. I have made it my priority to promote young women, both on and off the court. If we can inspire just one woman or one young girl to get involved in either the sport or the game day experience, it has made it all worth it.

Johnson's people say the wedding cost in the high-six-figures and conjecture is that it could be as much (or as little, depending on your perspective) as $1,200 per person. Yet even if she hits the $1 million mark for Saturday's festivities alone, that's the mega-rich person's equivalent of an easy ATM withdrawal. Johnson has been called "America's first black female billionaire," and for her, a $1 million wedding is the equivalent of "the average American" hosting a wedding that costs $160.
