New York's WNBA team moves to Radio City to make way for GOP
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

NEW YORK Move over women basketball players -- here come the Republicans.

The G-O-P has booked New York's Madison Square Garden for next month's national convention, so the W-N-B-A New York Liberty who normally play home games there will be holding their next six home games at the landmark Radio City Music Hall.

Instead of the Rockettes, it'll be pro basketball up on the big stage starting tonight. The Liberty have set up their hardwood court along with the hoops, team benches and scorers' tables. There are about six rows of seats at each end of the court and reporters will be seated in the orchestra pit. Fans will watch from the splendor of the Music Hall's 59-hundred seats.

Liberty interim coach Pat Coyle thinks it's "pretty cool" -- adding, the Music Hall has more room than the Garden.

The Rockettes, incidentally, will kick it up at halftime.
