Welcome to what may be the first "Thumbs Up" to ever run a two-consecutive-week appearance: The Indiana Fever just can't be denied. They are hot, flaming, blazing, incendiary, stellar, meteoric. We treasure them in our hearts and lift them up in their mission to utterly annihilate the reigning WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx. At this writing, the Fever are up 1-0 over the Lynx in the best-of-five WNBA finals after a 76-70 victory, even as their leading scorer, Katie Douglas, sat with an injured ankle. Why? Because the Fever define toughness and teamwork. We'll be watching the next two games, Oct. 17 in Minnesota and Oct. 19 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Focus, Fever. Keep your eyes on the prize. Bring that title home to the spiritual homeland of basketball. Bring it home, Indiana!
