With the Warriors preparing for a crucial Game 5 against the Rockets, Elizabeth Fishel says the Women’s Division of Dub Nation is passionate about the team they’ve come to love.
For most of my life, I didn’t give a hoot about basketball. I had better things to do with my time than yell at the TV over a ref’s bad call.
But when our two sons followed in my husband’s footsteps to become players and fans, I slowly warmed up to the sport.
At first, I barely knew the difference between a time-out and a box-out. But watching them play in one drafty high-school gym after another, I found the game’s joy and heartbreak.
When our sons returned from college, I’d still turn away when they talked about the Warriors’ “building years” (translation: they sucked).
