Bet On It!

At first, I thought it was unusual for a professional sports league to get in bed with a casino.
Now, I’m waiting for the WNBA to expand to Las Vegas, Reno, and Atlantic City.

The spirited competition between Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods now extends to the hardwood.  The Mohegans have the Connecticut Sun, and now the Mashantuckets have the New York Liberty.

The Liberty will stay in New York, but in a new sponsorship deal, their jerseys will have the Foxwoods logo front and center, under a small Liberty logo.

And guess where the New York Foxwoods will make their debut?  You got it, baby.  Friday night, Mohegan Sun Arena.

Bring your little girls to watch Kalana Greene and the Foxwoods take on the UConn Alumni Club, aka the Sun.  Maybe they can grow up to be the next Tina or Renee. 

Or a  croupier.
