WNBA Heart-Warmer


From the article John Eligon wrote about about the weekend's WNBA All-Star game for The New York Times:

Midway through the second half, Connecticut Sun forward Taj McWilliams-Franklin was sitting on the bench when she spotted her husband, Reggie Franklin, and leaped into his arms. They embraced for about two minutes as she broke into tears. Franklin, who is in the military and is stationed in Italy, had dropped in unannounced. He was not expected to return until later this month. He is scheduled to leave for Iraq in January.


One note about McWilliams-Franklin and her husband: she's 6-2, he's 5-9, and they have the same size feet. For a fuller version of this story check out TheDay.com.
