It's hard to believe the 2010 WNBA season saw its end five days ago. It's even harder to believe that today would be the day of a Game 5, had it been necessary in the series between Atlanta and Seattle.
As we are all very much aware, all that was needed was the bare minimum of three games to show that the team that started the regular season with a tear ended in much the same fashion. So to follow in the celebratory mood that has been following around the newest champions of the league, here are some notes of congratulations twitter-style from after Thursday's sweep became the Storm's crowing moment of 2010.
