The WBNA 2013 champs returned home to Minnesota Friday. Their victory celebrations may last longer than the three games it took them to sweep the championship. KSTP says many of the fans who cheered the team during the season showed up at the airport to welcome them home.
The Pioneer Press reports about 400 Lynx-lovers waited while the team let other passengers walked through the gate. When guard Seimone Augustus came through holding the championship trophy, the crowd erupted in applause and cheers. "It's fun to just let loose and celebrate with the fans," Augustus said. "I'm speechless. I'm full of emotion right now."
A triumphant parade will start at the Target Center at 11:30 Monday and wind through downtown Minneapolis.
The Pioneer Press quotes Head Coach Cheryl Reeve telling the team Thursday night, "Enjoy the hell out of this." Apparently, fans are prepared to have a great time too.
