WNBA champs, fans celebrate team's big feat
PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Mercury's slogan for the 2007 WNBA playoffs was "One team, one city, one goal."
On Tuesday, it was one big party as the new WNBA champions and about 1,000 of their fans celebrated at a U.S. Airways Center rally. A championship banner was unfurled as purple and gold confetti fluttered from the ceiling.
"You stuck with us through thick and thin, and there was quite a bit of thin," All-Star forward Penny Taylor told the crowd. "We fought for you."
