Your Washington Mystics are WNBA champions. And for many of them, their work’s not done: Many of them still have commitments to play internationally, and have to leave the country soon.
That means pressing the pause button on a proper party for just a few months.
A championship parade has been tentatively set for the spring, around when the Mystics start their 2020-2021 season. The first-time champs and Mayor Muriel Bowser will host the parade and surrounding events capping the celebration.
Still, they were able to get a little partying in on Friday, when they gathered for a rally at the Entertainment and Sports Arena, the site of Thursday night’s 89-78 Game 5 victory over the Connecticut Sun. Fans there cheered the no-doubt-exhausted champs and were able to get their photos taken with the championship trophy.
“Together, let’s make it a D.C. tradition to start our seasons with parades and banners in the rafters,” Bowser said Friday.
