Sara has been a Skyrider since the teams inaugural season in 2006. She is an avid Sky fan and Sara has been through lots of change with the Sky, coaches, players and even a new venue and while she fondly remembers some of the experiences she had back in the early days she is supportive of the growth of the franchise and is looking forward to an exciting 2013 and our upcoming #2 pick in the WNBA Draft on April 15.
Who is your favorite Sky player, past or present?
#11 Jia Perkins
What is your best memory as a fan?
The first year was the best year. I had the most sky fans in my section. We had a bond and a big cheering section.
What is your favorite thing about being a season ticket holder?
Meeting the players and going to exclusive Skyrider parties. My favorite was at Gameworks and we got to shoot pool with the players.
If you played for the Sky what song would you want to walk out to?
Bulls theme [Sirius by the Alan Parsons Project], It really gets me and Im sure a lot of other people excited.
If you could have dinner with any Sky player / coach, who would it be?
Jia Perkins, Pokey Chatman and Brooke Wyckoff
What is your favorite promotion or give away?
In 2006 Skyriders received a giant, autographed framed photo of whole team.
Who would you choose as your second pick in the 2013 WNBA draft? Why?
Its a toss-up for me between Elena Delle Donne, and Skylar Diggins. I think they both would be a good asset to the Sky. We really need someone like Delle Donne because she appears to be good with rebounds, and that is something that the Sky are sometimes lacking on the defensive side, but at the same time, it would be nice to be able to get to the championships, and it seems like Diggins has that sort of experience.
Do you prefer a high scoring game or a defensive battle?
Defensive battlehigh scoring games are nice but I like the entertainment and fighting hard rather than making it look easy.
Besides going to Chicago Sky games, what is your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
Theater Live at the Met. My favorite production is Carmen.
