Sue Bird Expects Great

The stars of the two newest WNBA Expect Great commercials (debuting during tonight's Fever-Liberty game on ESPN2) are former UConn teammates Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi, who filmed these ads in Seattle a couple weeks ago. Check them out:

In addition to talking about the commercials, Bird also touches on a number of other topics in the latest installment of the Bird & Dee blog - Taurasi's birthday party after the Storm beat Phoenix at KeyArena on June 11, the Storm's loss in Los Angeles (and the dunk) and the Storm missing out on a trip to the White House after winning the 2004 WNBA championship.

And for some reason, we didn't go after we won our WNBA title a few years back. We were actually just talking about this the other day. I don't know why we didn't go. I don't know what happened… Maybe there was a war… Something a little more serious than meeting a professional sports team. So I'm still a little pissed about that. But, you know, he's a busy guy, so I guess I can't blame him for that.

Now I guess we'll have to win another title… or maybe they'll have us if we win gold at the Olympics. (WOW, I just got a glare from Lauren… When I said "the Olympics," she gave me the evil eye! Man, this is the last time I blog in front of her.)

Look forward to an Expect Great commercial featuring the Storm's Lauren Jackson (as well as one with Phoenix's Cappie Pondexter) in the near future.
