Mother Teresa And Saint Joan
from: Time Out New York
Five years ago, there was no WNBA, no New York Liberty and no "Let's Go Liberty" anthem by JOAN JETT booming out of the speakers at Madison Square Garden. But since professional women's basketball jump-shot onto the scene in 1997, Teresa Weatherspoon, the Liberty's point guard, has been energizing her team and inspiring starry-eyed girls—from the projects to the suburbs and all points in between—to don her No. 11 jersey. And Jett, the original riot grrrl, has come back with a vengeance, releasing two CDs (Fit to Be Tied, in 1998, and last year's Fetish), popping up at local clubs, and becoming the New York Liberty's most visible fan—leather-clad, she sits at mid-court for every game, bopping along as her video lights up the scoreboard screen.
