The Tulsa Shock (Still) Has A Staph Problem - Quite Unfortunately

5

When I kept hearing that Kayla Pedersen had flu-like symptoms that left her sidelined for the Tulsa Shock for an extended period of time, I had a feeling that the squinky of the Shock was back - staph infection. Apparently that gut feeling was right, as Mechelle Voepel reported today about the epidemic that has hit the franchise in each of the last three seasons, striking at least six players.

From Seth Pollack on SB Nation Arizona: When I think of President Obama's message of hope, there's no athlete that embodies that spirit more than Johnson. I imagine when these two meet today there will be an immediate connection and recognition of similar values, iron will and common purpose.

For me to actually see him and meet him first hand is a huge honor for me, an unforgettable moment. And to go for the reason we're going, everybody doesn't get that opportunity either."
