And now for something completely different.

Getting a couple of common mistakes out of the way first:

I am not the Original Sin, despite my username's similarity. I have a lot more fun than that ;)

I am not that Sue. I came along well before her. I can't fix you up with Diana Taurasi or Swin Cash. Huskies and Scarlet Knights don't get along well enough for that.

My name is Sue, as might be glaringly obvious by now. I'm sitting here laughing at the fact that the last of the "big 4" sports (at least according to Americans) is represented by a retired female player. A lady does not admit her age, but I'm not much of a lady: I'm 39. I originally hail from Long Island, but I got out of there as fast as I could. I live in New Jersey now. It's not as bad as the jokes say.

I used to play for the New York Liberty of the WNBA. Before that came along, I played in Japan, Hungary, Israel, Italy, and Spain. I decided that I didn't feel like sitting on the end of the bench and got the hell out of Dodge so I could start conspiring to take over the Garden retired gracefully in 2002. These days, I work for my alma mater, Rutgers, as Coordinator of Basketball Operations, and after close to a year on the job, I'm still not quite sure what I'm supposed to be doing.

I grew up a Mets and Knicks fan. I didn't really follow hockey much- by the time the Islanders were in full dynasty mode, I was shooting hoops in the schoolyard. As for football, I don't see the appeal in men in tights hitting each other repeatedly. Maybe I would if I liked men in tights.

I have two cats and one partner. I'll try to keep the trite domestic details to a minimum. I think that's it for now.
