Friday WNBA Links: Seattle's Record-Setting Game, All American Red Heads Hall of Fame Induction

We haven't done links in a few days because there weren't that many games per day, preview links are generally included in game threads (thanks to thewiz06), and James, Queenie and Ray covered Wednesday's games in Atlanta and New York already.

There are obviously more links today - especially on the Hall of Fame - so feel free to leave those in the comments along with any other thoughts and insights you have.
